  The Blue Hills Association continues with is commitment to quality cross country skiing. I skied most of the East Side trails and found them to be in excellent spring skiing condition. A groomer was just coming in from some touch up when I took off at 10:40. Sugar snow with a faint corduroy provided ample edging and control. South facing trails were a little slow but not mushy. It is always worth the drive and daily fee (if your not a member).

  Hadn't skied here in a few years and it sure was fun to ski the Blue Hills again. Not all trails were groomed and not all were tracked, but it was a great ski anyway. Perfect day to be out there. Tons of snow in the woods.

  Primo conditions for skating, excellent striding where the track is new, pretty good striding where track was set 5 days ago. West Side freshly groomed including track. For at least a few days the groomers have the deep snow tamed - and have reopened most of the trails on the East Side. Grooming the East Side Friday evening should put the frosting on the cake for great Saturday skiing. Be sure to check the website for additional details - you can even use Avenza Maps app on your phone to help you find your way around the trail system: details on the 'Trail Maps' link from the website menu.

  Great packed powder skiing. Wide trails, firm skate deck, solid classic track, solid pole plants. Excellent skating, very good striding. Despite the deep deep snow that has required loads of grooming, more than 80% of the trails are open - and the trails are being groomed to set up peak conditions for Saturday morning.

  Very good skating and excellent striding - high quality grooming, great packed powder skiing. Wide trails, firm skate deck, firm classic track, solid pole plants, great edge control. Cold crisp temps and bright sunshine, perfect way to say goodbye to February.
