9 AM

Classic Skiing warm up/down 15:00 [1] 1.0 mi (15:00 / mi)
shoes: Rossi Xium Classic

Looping around the field. Just a bit below freezing now. I am having mixed feelings. Skis could glide faster - kick seemed ok.
10 AM

Classic Skiing race 1:20:40 [4] 24.0 km (3:22 / km) +300m 3:10 / km
shoes: Rossi Xium Classic

White Mt Classic 30k. It's not a 30 k. We debated at lunch afterwards: 22, 21, ?? K.K. insisted it was 24k, but perhaps it may have been 21k after they took out the Henry.
This was a fun race: Tracks were excellent - the groomers did manage to make the course softer, which helped. Then the clouds moved in about 15 minutes after the start which delayed the warm up, so temps remained around 35 while we were in the higher elevations. I had good company. I passed Doug early on, and never saw him. He seem to struggle a bit on the Yodel up. Mike Melnikov passed by for a short bit on the Yodel up, until the wave but then I shook him off on the downhills - he closed in on my on the flats between 1st and second loop, but the second wave part of ups and downs was in my favor. I beat him by a minute, Doug by 3.5 minutes. Almost caught up to Jud H. and another older guy (forgot his name). I had energy to the end, and could have probably managed to race a third loop, for a real 30k. But I was happy closing in on several faster skiers, with the exception of Meredith P. (she is younger), wo was out of site from the beginning. I guess my month-long double poling putzing around has improved my poling strength a bit.
2 PM

Skate Skiing 35:00 [2] 4.0 mi (8:45 / mi)
shoes: Atomic Skate RS9

A short skate outing before heading down S to go home. Nancy was at the library, so I did the Valley trails, Gray's connectors, and up around the Grauenstein loop. Soft and warm and I had the wrong wax on, but did not matter - just going slow and steady. Then, bye bye Jackson.

2 PM

Classic Skiing 1:10:00 [3] 3.5 mi (20:00 / mi) +30m 19:29 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Classic

After 3 hours of ski prepping, of which at least 1/2 the time was spent chatting at the waxroom, I managed to test my skis while going for a touring hour with Nancy. Had universal klister of purple klister/VG35 basewax mix. I decided to experiment with a very thin layer of klister. This was not great, I seem to have the stoppers on, so likely I skied a bit on the base wax rather than the universal. Temps around 38.
Went back to the waxroom and added several layers of VR60 with a bit of VR70 mixed in, hoping to add a bit to the glide and be prepared for warm temperature. This ended up being a good choice (see tomorrow's). That took care of an entire day. Oh what fun to be in snowcountry!

10 AM

Classic Skiing 1:00:00 [1] 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)
shoes: Rossi Xium Classic

Touring around the Eagle Fields with Nancy. Winter-Paradise day: Snow in the trees, sunny, windless, becoming balmy. Saw about 100 Cedar Waxwings munching the fruit of an abandoned apple tree. They couldn't be distracted by our stepping closer, trying to take pictures and talking loudly. They were having the feast of their lives.
12 PM

Classic Skiing 35:00 [2] 3.0 mi (11:40 / mi) +40m 11:12 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Classic

Then I scraped off the klister blobs from last year's Craftsbury race that were still on my skis. Added a bit of VR50 to the half-cleaned base and tested this. Totally worthless on the fields, which by now were turning to a bit of slash. I had a hint of a kick in the woods around Alice's Alley where temps were in the mid 30's. But in the fields it was sun-bathing weather. So I made my way down to the village (Yodel down..) to hook up w. Nancy and the 2 Freeman daughters for lunch at the ski rental.
2 PM

Classic Skiing 1:10:00 [3] 8.0 mi (8:45 / mi) +70m 8:31 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Classic

Then more wax testing over at the Ellis. It was not improved since the morning. But I managed to move comfortably with double poling on the slighter hills and power stepping and herring boning on the few steeps.
Ran into the Barkeys for the first time. (or is the 2nd?). I expected them to have season passes.

Snow Shoveling 40:00 [1]

Heavy wet 5 inches. Had to clear the paths etc. before our trip.
5 PM

Skate Skiing 1:05:00 [2] 7.5 mi (8:40 / mi) +150m 8:10 / mi
shoes: Atomic Skate RS9

In Jackson. 1.5 inches of light snow on top of groomed surface. Yodel, around the Eagle fields, the Wave, Alice's Alley, more looping and back down. Superb conditions, quiet gliding at dusk into the night. Saw one other skier in the distance - could have been K.K.

Monday Jan 16 #

1 PM

Rollerskiing 1:05:00 [2] 6.0 mi (10:50 / mi)
shoes: Nieflheim Skate

To work, for a quick office job that needed to be done (transfer of files) via Mill Road, then back home the usual via Mast Road.
