    Sunday PM, skated Group use road.. temp was still around -5 so hardpacked, rutted from the previous day of skating up the middle. Sides were best option in my opinion. Hard to get an edge at time.. if you have good balance, you will be cruising! Classic on Bluestem was a different stpry.. both tracks still defined, but soft and slushy in places.. I elected to use Ice Klister, but it didn’t do any good at all. Of particular notes (especially for the night skiers) At lookout hill there is an exposed rock at the top now in the middle. There is a large pure ice patch at the bottom of the hill. The left turn to bluestem is pure hardpack. After you cross Chickadee on Bluestem west, and make the slight right, the track goes down to grass momentarily… there’s still a few days in there for the die hards.. Im gonna consider myself a cyclist again til November 🙂
