    The trails at Shannondale were in excellent shape Sunday for both skate and classic. Good skis were the order of the day as the area has plenty of snow and no bare spots. Of course Dave Lumgair had the trails perfectly groomed and took the time to chat with our group. Worth the trip to get some free fresh air.

    From Ed Zwingerman:

    Saturday AM conditions were amazing, trails on blue Classic were good with only rare bald spots. Orange was the same. By afternoon it was slushy and a bit slow. Surprisingly good conditions for this time of year. If you get an early start it will be a great ski. Always worth the trip for the ski and visit with Dave.
