All trails open.
Skiing yesterday was really good. It was only -0º this morning. And warms up fast with the sun. Skiing today will be the same. If you have maxiglide, bring it. We do have some for sale in the shop. Maxiglide is used on the bottom of no wax skis to keep snow from icing on when there is powdery snow around 32º. Once the powder snow gets warm and then freezes you don't need it.
Our home town girl, Sophie was 3rd, so on the podium, in a Sprint World Cup race in Finland last week. She races next on Wednesday, March 5th. The race is in Norway and is a classic sprint. You can find it online.
Here is a link to his blog on nordic skiing. He is from Colorado and has been writing this blog for a year. It is a really good way to follow along.
Our neighbor, Sophie, has a blog up. Read this http://sophiecaldwell.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-little-things.html We are so proud of her, as a friend, an athlete, and most of all as a role model. (Little Maisie, 4.5 years old, is in love.)
The temperatures are cold this winter. Some reminders for dressing warm to get outside.
•Dry clothes! Seems easy, dry socks, wool, just before you go out. Dry mittens. •Dry shirt. We all sweat.
•Layers. No cotton. Wool, polypro, fleece. Windproof.
•Cover your neck. Scarf, neck warmers.
•Dry shirt for after. Again, sweat.
•Remember hand warmers and feet warmers.
With the reroute on the Woodcock, you may want to ski the Snow Goose twice to get a little more distance.

I FOLLOW THE RELIGION OF LOVE
My heart has become capable of every form:
It is a pasture for gazelles,
And a monastery for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols,
And the Ka’aba of the pilgrims,
And the tablets of the Torah,
And the book of the Qur’an.
I follow the religion of Love:
Whatever path Love’s camel takes,
That is my religion and my faith.
