Classic Ski 3:03:00  19.89 mi (9:12 / mi)
The snow at the Jack is deteriorating. Its slightly melt-freeze hard track, so even after the grooming today, it was it barely skiable for classic, but I soldiered through. Saw 3rd@Birkie and JH and chatted with them a bit. After last week, 3 hours this week didn't seem like a big deal. Started to get hungry at the end. Given I probably will have to drive all the way to Devil's Thumb and back in a single day to do my virtual Birkie there, I'm now thinking I do it skating at the Jack, so I started to think about what the course would be to avoid the growing dirt patches that render a number of trails marginal, or marginal due to uneven, icy, and sketchy downhills. Legs were tired a bit from running the past two days and got even more tired just trying to keep the darn skis straight.
