Firsthand 
  Conditions: Very good. Skate lane has nicely transformed clean snow. Classic tracks are clean and smooth.
Skied during that magic hour around sunset when the trail was freezing up, making for a fast and fun ski. The classic tracks were amazing, and the skate lane was a little rutted from the day's use. Eric is doing a great job with the spring grooming, and was heading out as I left. The river is rising, get out and ski it while you can!

Grooming Scheduling 
  Conditions: We had a good day of spring skiing today. I powertilled about 15 km of combination trails and Rick tracked about 35 km of single tracks and the Highlands. I will be out again powertilling in the early morning.
The snow is holding up well and temps are below freezing at night the river is rising but has not flooded yet so most of the main trails are skiing and grooming well. Bear Bait is closed due to flooding. It looks like we will make the weekend for skiing and for Taste of the Trails.

Grooming Scheduling 
  Conditions today: The skiing today was very good spring skiing conditions! There are no bare spots and no ice on what I groomed this AM. I did see some water flowing across Cherry Dairy.
Conditions this week and weekend: I see that we are past the warm evenings temps for a few days which will help keep the River from rising! I see us grooming 15-50 km/day thru the weekend. We are running the PB on the combo trails and even with above freezing temps the PB can till up the corn and make a nice ski surface. We are planning on having the Taste of the Trails Saturday from 12-2 and we have 5 restaurants signed up so far. We will allow snow shoeing on the Taste and Trails afternoon. We expect to Close Sunday at 5 PM for the season March 13th.
