    Skied a solo and very chilly Birchkin Pumpski this afternoon! Maybe the first person to do so, if the finisher’s log is to be believed.

    The Birch grooming was stellar, the Pumpkin Creek grooming was very good, and the connection was pretty good also (some drifting in open areas, to be expected). The big long descents were absolutely perfect freshly machine-fluffed powder, and the tracking was *chef’s kiss*.

    (This condition report might already be moot given all the snow in tonight’s forecast.)

    The parking lot had a fair bit of fresh snow: might have been fine, but I didn’t want to chance getting my tiny car stuck while all by my lonesome at -30° and -43° windchill… so played it safe and parked out on the road.

    Truly grateful for the cooperation and work that goes into this event! And it was an added treat to have these limited time only trails completely to myself today. Thanks Birch and PC!
