Observation 
  I stopped by Monday to put away some stuff in the Chalet. Trails were pretty well baked down to the dirt.

  I started classical. The pin oaks are releasing their leaves and depositing many of them in the classic tracks, which are also starting to show bare ground. The skate deck has good coverage but is thin. Bare ground is starting to encroach in spots.

  Same report as my previous Tower report with one positive exception: classic tracks are set on all trails including the big hills far away from the warming house. More grooming was also performed today on the skate deck too as I noticed it was widened in some areas specifically hills (thank you grooming crew). Get out it's great!

  Recent two inches of additional snow and great grooming has provided some of the best skiing of the season at Tower Ridge. All trails were groomed and a track was set on most. Encourage folks to take advantage of the skiing here before warmer weather.

  Grooming was in progress mid afternoon, no track set. I took the B skis but the trail was good enough for the A set. The crunchy spots were obvious with little or no risk of damage. Just avoid it since there is room. First time here with a friend. No track, no problem for either of us. I started on the B classic wood skis. Wrong. With the air temp around 30, the skis iced up in the big loop down below. Sun drenched areas were the toughest. Switched to waxless and skiing worked better. In most places, the bamboo touring pole plants sank in to basket depth. I would expect track setting is in the grooming plans for Thursday. The oak and pine forest was flocked with new snow. Skier traffic was light. The overlooks of the river valley are beautiful. We did not explore any of the black trails, just the easy to intermediate stuff. Tower Ridge is in great shape right now. I wish I would have had a good look at the grooming piece being towed. The opertator and equipment was doing great work. The view from the chalet is like no other I have seen. Six bucks per vehicle gets you in. Don't miss this fleeting chance.
