Firsthand 
  Conditions: About an inch of wet snow making it possible to skate. Groomed slightly in rare edges.
I stayed out for 1 1/12 hours and picked my way avoiding ice patches, finding a way around. I avoided going down a couple of the bigger drops, just in case. It was worth (not wirth) it to me! I wouldn't try it in the dark. The glacier is good and the parallel section over the chalet hill is wonderful.

Grooming 
  Conditions: Ice and ungroomed.
Until we get more snow we will not be able to groom the very thin base out there. Much of the trail is glare ice so please be careful. Expect the chalet to close after President's Day for the season.

  Conditions: Poor, icy, limited remaining classic tracks.
Made a try at classic skiing at Como Tuesday afternoon. It was very icy, with the tracks a mess. The skate deck was in marginally better shape but also icy. It was often dangerously difficult to stop on inclines due to the ice.

  Conditions: Packed and fast between 3 and 4pm. Few problematic spots.
I skated mid afternoon and expected a slush fest at 34F. But instead, the course was packed from lots of use (enough edge though) and still fast. Sticky pole plant every now and then, but otherwise, just the way I like it. Coming out from under the bridge there are some muddy spots.

  Conditions: Excellent but softening.
Skate deck was in great shape before noon. Classic was getting a bit sloppy but was still very good and fun.
