Ian started this morning early. He was grooming by the time I looked out at 3:20am. And right now he is taking a coffee break to watch the sprint finals. He will be back in the groomer as soon as the sprints are done. Hopefully the USA will have a medal. It is amazing that we can even have that expectation. Keeping it short so I can watch. ...

I was the first to get to ski up the Blue Jay. I did not want to be the first to herringbone and wreck the tracks. And anyone who has skied up the hill behind the barn know it gets pretty darn steep. It was a super hard arm work out.
Ian gets a ski, after grooming and before heading out to take the Burr and Burton ski team to a race. He is a very happy camper with the way the new groomer is working, the tracks are great and the corduroy is pretty. A very happy camper!!!! ...
