Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Classic track skiing was a bit soft due to the dry snow. It is firming up and blowing out. Between two trips today I was on the Purple, Green, Brown, and Blue, just to the Blue return link and out. The Brown has no track. It still skied fast enough on skins to fly the S turn. In my opinion, track just gets in the way on a black diamond downhill. The double drop at the bottom was also quite fast. I carried glide to the culvert. On the Blue, the downhill S turn was blown up just out of the campground. Both skis lost track so I stepped it left to clip the last turn and ski on the deck down the straight run. On the return loop exit, there is a body print on the left turning downhill. I lost one track running through the body print but reset the ski okay. The blue diamond Blue trail was on the more difficult side of intermediate today. Fun stuff at Willow.

Grooming Lost/Found 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  All of the trails were groomed and tracked Thursday morning. The skate deck is a bit soft in places but should firm up with skier use and overnight temps. A pair of Swix ski poles was found at Willow. If they're yours, call the park office to arrange pickup.

  Skied classical under the full moon Monday night and the lines were excellent. Firm and fast! Just wanted to say thanks to the volunteers who make this such a wonderful place to ski!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The skate deck on all trails was regroomed to level out the berms left after the last snow event and add some "bite" to the surface. The classic track continues to be in excellent condition.
