Friday Feb 29

My watch says Friday March 1– but it’s a little confused. It’s really Feb 29th. It is a cold day at Bolton– -10 at 8am. But there is a strong late winter sun and no clouds.  But it is going to warm up into the high teens/ low 20s later this afternoon. Should be a great day for skiing. Wax is green…. and maybe extra blue later in the day. We have 10km classic tracked and20km skate groomed.

Also the backcountry skiing should be super. The cold temps have helped to preserve the powder. Yesterday a couple skiers got a shuttle to Bolton from Trapps and skied back on the Catamount Trail. So the trail has been skied in and reports are that conditions up there are good.

Tomorrow is the Frigid Infliction– an adventure race hosted by GMARA– the race starts at 5am and should not impact skiing on Saturday. But if you do see racers– cheer them on. I’m sure they could use as much support as possible.
