    We skied Squirrel Hills this afternoon. The groomers were apparently out first thing Tuesday after the big snowfall and set a nice track. Since then, they’ve received the tiniest dusting of snow. Made for a bit of a tradeoff: a bit less glide than expected (hoped), but more manageable hill speeds. Really appreciated that the groomers left the steepest hills untracked; packed only: it allows for some control, since the trails are often too narrow to snowplough.

    The cabin has had a bit of work done since last year: cute new coat of paint, new biffy, new picnic tables. Navigation is so easy with numbered trail signs at every intersection (and there are a lot of intersections).

    Don’t think I’ve ever been to Squirrel Hills, in any season, without a bunch of deer absolutely flying across the trail at top speed. Today was no exception!
