4 Days to Vasaloppet- A Championship flight to Stockholm

Inspire your kids and grandkids: Click here for a glimps of the Young People's Vasaloppet:
My äpölogies for åny misspellings with this Swedish keyboard. Left Denver early Monday for Stockolm with a layover in Chicago, arriving in Stockolm about 16 hrs later. We were treated with special travelers on our flight: The Olympic Gold medal winning Swedish women's curling team! They were greeted to a champions welcome at the airport--the rest of us were shuttled off to customs...I will enjoy Stockholm a couple of days and then head up to Orsa7Mora for one last workout before the race on Sunday.
Varmaste hälsningar,
Greg Peterson

March 2 Grooming Report

Jon groomed out everything at Skyway/county Line this morning.  High temps are getting to around 32 degrees, so snow is warming up in the middle of the day -- skate lane is getting a bit mushy, and get out the pink wax!  Classic tracks are holding up nicely, but you will need some Violet for kick wax.  Highs tomorrow should be in upper 20s, with lows around 15 degrees.  Al also groomed Ward this morning -- if you want to ski Ward, make sure to get out the next couple of weeks, as March 14 will be our last day for grooming there.  Snow is getting really slushy in the early afternoon hours down there, so get out early. 
Our next grooming will be Friday afternoon/evening (3 pm) for Skyway/County Line and Friday morning (9 am) for Ward.  Happy skiing!
