A great day for cross-country skiing at Kyburz Flats.  Except for a few bare spots on the first mile of Henness Pass Road from the highway (could have driven that), there was a perfect amount of snow: just enough to cover and ski on, but no effort to break a trail.  This route goes to the  Wheeler Sheep Camp (Basque shepherder oven exhibit), then around the Flats and up to a nice high meadow. The weather started out foggy, but turned sunny.
