  Hallelujah! Pine Point park has tracks on 90% of the trails. There is one very thin spot by the pond where there's been flooding. In most places you're skiing on nice new soft snow. There are sections of transformed crunchy snow mixed in. The skate lane was wide and firm and would have been a great choice. Pine Point doesn't have the most trails but it's different kinds of forests and prairie with ponds thrown in. Most of the trail is very protected so a great place to ski on cold days.

Grooming

  All ski trails were groomed and tracks were set. Overall the trails are in good condition with some debris. The tracks may be shallow in some areas due to lack of snow.

  Pine Point groomed today. No tracks set. Due to the wind, there were some bare spots and debris on the trail.

  First stop today on my quest to ski as much natural snow as possible, first week of December and I'm already tired of the manmade hamster loops. Arrived at Pine Point about 8:45AM and had the park to myself, other than a dogwalker on snowshoes. Conditions ranged from very good groomed powder, to some icy/rutted sections, to a couple of bare/ice sections on the return to the parking lot. A fair amount of tree debris, especially under the evergreens. B skis ok if you're a bit careful.

  I skied both sides of the park on both sides of the Gateway Trail. I got to the park right as the temp was 31/32 F, so the trail was icy in spots, but still decent skiing. Some leaf debris on trails. I did not go down in the hollow north of the pond as it has been frozen mud, etc. I basically did the outside loop. Great to be out so early in the season.
