Default Pre BIrkie/Birkie trail conditions

As I always do I skied the Pre-Birkie today, instead of Mora, I like
the Birkie Hills, compared to the flatter terrain at Mora. The
conditions on the trail were great coverage, However, the trail has
not set up well from grooming during the week. The trail was very
soft on the up hills. I thought it was just my skiing the trail after
200 other skiers had been on the trail in front of me, But I talked
with a top 25 skier and he said it was soft in the front. The birkie
crew will need to groom/till daily to get the trail to firm up for all
the Birkie/Korte racers, otherwise those in wave 2 and back will be
skiing up hills in snow up to our knees. I am sure they will do the
best. At least they don't have to worry about lack of snow or a major
melt down this year if you look out 2 weeks in the forecast.
