Today, Saturday Jan. 22nd. I went to Erling Stordahl which is located off Exit 62, Crystal Springs on I-90.  The groomer said he fixed part of the trails there and was headed out to do the Roller Coaster.  When we got there around 1 pm the Roller Coaster was pretty hard but had some soft patches.  Only about a half […]

My First Wednesday Night Skate TT

Today marked the start of the Mila Headlamp Series at Cabin Creek.  The weather and conditions were less than favorable.  It was 30 and raining as we went over Snoqualmie Pass.  From previous reports from my friends I knew there was about 1.5″ of new snow and that the groomer hadn’t been out.  The snow was wet, choppy and heavy, […]
