    Birds Hill Park, Christmas Day afternoon, -6°.
    Skate:
    The Group Use Road has indeed become hardpacked in the middle, but an edging skate ski was able to obtain a bit of bite at -6°. At a very cold temp it would be “boilerplate”. The exterior edge of the road was moderately soft in most places. Enjoyable skiing.
    There were at least 6 other skate skiers, and at least 6 classic skiers using the skier-set track on the interior edge of the road, but only two walkers (and they seemed to be careful about their walking line).
    Classic:
    In addition to the fairly good track in most places on the Group Use Road, the skier-set tracks on Bluestem and Chickadee varied from good to not-so-good. Beware of a large rock on the descent from the tower on Esker.
