    The snow at Shannondale yesterday was even nicer than last weekend – tracks were firm but hills were almost butter in places. Had another great ski around all the open classic trails, but the skate grooming looked excellent too. Finally tracked down Dave hand off our donation in person and got the full update on life, the universe and everything.
