[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Things are holding up here at Winter Park, but becoming more challenging in some sections. Those areas with more sun exposure got hard and icy when the temp dropped. Those areas with less sun exposure were still in pretty good shape. This was the majority of what I skiied. Still, bare patches, areas of significant forest litter, etc are an issue here and there.

[ B skis ]
  Surprisingly good! I haven't been able to ski at the park the past few days and was doing some scouting of the race course for Tuesday's Lakeland Invitational high school and middle school race. In general conditions were very good, with a track set left that looked more than acceptable. If you were observant and delicate, good skis would be in order, but for peace of mind a B set would be an easy call.

[ Good skis ]
  Conditions were surprisingly good considering the amount of snow the groomers have to work with. I skied base (about 6 times around) survivor, tornado, C & D. It was demo day. I did not encounter any sections of the trail with anything more than a little forest debris. This trail system is definitely worth your time. Kudos to MWP. Always a great job of grooming.

[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  The MWP recommended 5k+ loop is very good with one spot to look out for. Conditions are better than expected and should hold with the exception of a few thin areas with full sun. Some trails are a definite no go so check with staff. Demo day was good too!

  Most of the close in trails are open. Rock skis are recommended. Trails are on the bumpy side and there are occasional areas with some forest litter. Also exposed rocks or bare ground in a few spots which are easy to avoid. That being said I put together an 8k loop, skied it twice and was able to get around without hitting anything. Edging was fine. There is a thin classic track set on the open segments. I had a great ski, well worth going.
