Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Skiing survives at Wolverine and was surprisingly good today. The core trails (Cliff Trail, Wolverine Cut Across, 3-Sisters, Stairway to Heaven, and Pit Run) remain in good condition. Cliff Hanger and Powderhorn are fair condition with a few step-overs. Hospital section, novice trail, and the pond loop are not skiable. The head-wall in the stadium will likely be melted out by the end of the day. If you need to ski one more time, get out there soon. Don't let the melting head-wall at the trailhead discourage you, it's better just around the first corner.

  Very good skiing continues at Wolverine with good crust in the morning, and smooth corn in the afternoon. Base is not punchy, and quite deep in most places. The head-wall in the stadium is melting the fastest but still good. The Novice Loop and the section behind the Hospital are closed for the season. The pond loop near Powderhorn is rough. Downgraded to B skis due to minor surface debris.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Grooming has finished for this successful season of skiing. Chalet is closed. You may still ski the trails that remain open after 4" of wet snow that fell the last 2 days. No bare spots, not mushy. Striding is skier tracked. Some skaters have been out. A great spring day of skiing!

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  The base remains solid throughout. We came across one thin spot (pictured), and the rest of the trail was a bit rutted and crusty. Overall, skiing was good with a tiny improvement today after the slightest dusting last night.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Trails are good to excellent condition. Good snow coverage on the trail, no bare spots. Skate lane is very skiable. Tracks are still good. Keep skiing. Grooming has been suspended for the weekend do to weather forecast. The Chalet will be closing for the season this Sunday at 6pm. Trails will remain open into next week and grooming will be determined by the weather and temps.
