  Squeezing out the last skiing. Strided from Mosquito Brook past Gravel Pit to 23K and back. Shallow tracks but holding, Lots of glide but needed lots of stick (poles). Almost no oak leafs to hop around in the tracks. Good snow coverage yet. Saw one other skier during the sunny blue morning.

  Perfect conditions mid morning (32-37 degrees). Smooth fast silent (not crackly icy) corduroy. Just starting to compress a bit in the sunny areas by 10:30 or so. Complete coverage, groomed at OO and skate trail to Boedecker. Talked to folks that skied all the way from Start to OO and reported it was fast and fun. Tracks not reset, but still intact and shallow. Lots of smiles. Best skiing of the year for me! Thanks ABSF,

  Still full coverage on Birkie trail! A bit icy in the morning, soft after it gets to mid 30s. There is a sweet window with excellent skating, especially if there is not full sun in the open areas. Tracks are getting shallow, but skin skis work well. We skied a bit from Boedecker but were a little too early so switched to fat biking (not on the birkie trail!) Photos are just north of OO. Still a few cool mornings to grab some final skiing!

  Skied Start Line to High Point on the Skate, back on the Classic. Great spring skiing! Crusty and fast when I started, started to soften up as it approached noon. Much less debris than south of High Point, which I skied Tuesday. No new grooming since then, but appears there hasn't been much traffic either. Appeared as though North End trails were groomed last night. There will be great morning skiing after nights it dips below freezing. This was a lovely last ski of the season for me, now heading back to Madison and putting on storage wax...

  Skied OO to High Point on the Classic, back on the Skate. Relatively slow going with the melt, but the base is still in exceptional shape. Decent number of patches with leaf litter, twigs, and cones, but most are very easy to avoid as they've melted themselves down into the snow. Get out there and enjoy it while it lasts!
