Thursday Mar 18 #


I got out for some biking in the early afternoon, and did find enough bare pavement that wasn't too water logged. It also felt chillier on the outskirts of town than I had imagined it would, despite full sun. This due to some breeze coming across the valley, and virtually everywhere the prairie is still covered in snow, so it was a case of natural air conditioning.

In late afternoon I went up in hopes the ski trails had received some attention, which they had. However, the groomer had left the trails in bad shape for the circumstances. A set of trails had been first packed, and then rolled, and it was obvious the rolling had taken place when the snow was warm and moist. And everything was very uneven to begin with, due to uneven settling and packing over the deep new snow. By mid-afternoon things were re-freezing, and the alternating grooves and ridges left by the rollers made for perilous skiing. Better than nothing, but unexplainable was why additional grooming wasn't done as things were re-freezing to reduce the ruts to something manageable.
