Good refreeze and snow still very ski-able between midday and 1pm, probably the best skiing I've had at the CdP this season. Only the red behind the foyer had some bare patches on it, probably not long for this world without some fresh snow. The blue loop was really good, just soft enough to not have any surprises but nice and fast.

After a warm up I did the second run nearly all on V2 skate except for a 2 "ramps" where I had to click down to V1. This had been an aim this season to improve my skate technique.
