  Conditions: New snow and warmer temp from last night made it easy to move around. They groomed a path to get to the downhill section - nice to ski on.
I practiced with the Finn Sisu group last night. Snow was slow because of the cold but today it was good. You just have to see to move around on the trail - gets thin or icy in spots. Under the bridge is bare - be careful. Skied both sides of the bridge but not the back side/ eastern-most section. Was worth it!

  Conditions: Like skiing on a lake with a dusting of snow on top.
I was one of two skaters lured to Como by the previous report today. Judging from the dearth of tracks, there was perhaps one other skater before us. We agreed that it was "skiable" but only with extreme caution and definitely not after dark. It was hard to get an edge on the uphills and on downhills we risked catching an edge on an ice ridge. I fell once. But the so-called glacier along the zoo side was excellent. I take personal responsibility for what looks like a high school team's worth of tracks on that side. Oh, and look out for golf balls. They are well camouflaged. Overall I was glad I went.

  Conditions: Windblown over ice pebble base.
Made two laps over formerly groomed area, definitely skiable with the only issue under the bridge where I moved and packed some snow to prevent the free structure I got on my first lap. Great day to get the 10-days-out-from-Birkie long ski in. No issue with cart paths as they are ice/snow cover and solid. Very fast downhill.

  Conditions: Still skiable, but very grassy.
I went out over the noon hour. It was a lot more grassy than last night--or was it because I could see the grass better? I think the former, because it was also a lot slower. Thinking that Como probably won't make it through warm weather.

  Conditions: Skiable, fair to good--finally.
What a relief to be able to ski close to home! The snow is thin, with grass coming through in many places--it seemed like grass clippings churned into the snow in some places. But overall the course is quite good, considering. I didn't hit pavement anywhere. There was even full coverage under the bridge, but be careful there as I did hit something that threw me. Although the snow felt silky where there wasn't grass, when I finished the bottoms of my skis looked like they had been completely stripped of wax.
