  The trails have not been groomed since the dusting of snow on Thursday. The skating deck is in good condition, but hard packed, skated-in and slow at these temps. The classic tracks, however, are excellent and might the best of the season. Firm with good glide. Oak leaves are in the tracks, but the east-west segments have fewer leaves than the north-south segments, due to the west winds, I presume. Now that the County groomers set continuous tracks through intersections and the oak leaves are too cold to stick to Swix Polar hard wax, classic skiing was quite enjoyable.

  Conditions: Very good to excellent. About an inch of fresh snow on a firm deck.
Didn't encounter any bare spots. Was skating, but noted there was enough fresh snow to coat debris on classic tracks. Nearly had the place to ourselves due to Birkie event this weekend :).

  Conditions: Best of the year.
These light snow falls add up to excellent conditions thanks to the groomers that lay down fresh corduroy. Classic track looked to be in good condition too. The whole system seemed to have been groomed.

  The skating deck is hard, well used, and has not been groomed in several days. The classic tracks, however, are in the best condition of the year. Last night's dusting covered the oak leaves and so far this morning the wind has not kicked new leaves into the tracks. Very good classic conditions and I am happy to report the groomers now set tracks through intersections.

  Conditions: Great, but strong winds blew a lot of tree debris onto the trail. A little sticky skating due to a warmer wagon my skis.
Best ski of the season this morning despite 2 degrees with a 20-mph wind. Bundle up, cover your face, and have fun! Definitely worth the $6 day use fee to use a restroom and have space to change out of sweaty clothes.
