Breck. Warm almost purple wax morning. Went with the Speedmax again. We did our usual warm up trails and a loop of Beaver Meadow. We then decided to check out Morning Glory. Then, what the heck, up and up on Glutimus Maximus. It's a very pretty trail weaving through the woods that goes up and up. Steep up is not my specialty -- I can't open my legs as wide as would be optimal. We skipped the loop trail at the top because it hadn't been groom recently and I was in no mood for extra lifting of my skis while doing more up hill. On the plus side, it was a fast and furious down having to slalom on the xc skis on a narrow track in the woods -- ZING. I headed back to the lodge on tired legs and did another 2k on flat trails reinforcing good habits and technique. Lisa had finished up snowshoeing and was testing some skis so I stopped and chatted with her a couple of times. We started under cloudy almost foggy skies and finished with a nice sunny day. Excellent outing.
Finished with 98.7k for the 3.5 days.

Frisco. Fischer Speed Cold with yesterdays CH6. Just right for the first hour then a touch slow as temps warmed to purple zone. Back and forth on Crown Point a bit with the main attraction being a circuit of Jody's Nugget. The latter stays on the very top of the peninsula so there are great views. Lots of short up and downs, which were fun. Ran a bit low on energy over the last 15-20min, but that's understandable. Very good ski.

Breck. Back on the Speedmax Plus w/ LF7. This should really be a one ski day to recover a bit but that's not what the schedule allows. I had fun on the downs and had decent technique zipping along at speed. My climbing is much improved well and I am better able to find a gear I can keep diesel-ing along in. However, I was a bit out of steam. Pat did a third loop of Beaver Meadow and I pealed offed for a bit on green trails to get my distance to 11k. Fun ski but I'm tired.

* Slow down a bit with the iron. Not so hot to burn the wax and base but enough so that the base warms up and the wax absorbs. If there is chipping when scrapping that means the wax was just sitting on top. Take my time, down the middle, down the sides, down the middle, etc.
* Keep scrapers sharp. Then I can apply less pressure and have better control. To touch up be light, slow and patient. Mistakes always happen when being impatient.
