  Beautiful day at the forest. Leaving the Smekar lot the Central and North trails were nicely groomed and tracked. On the return from the shelter there was no track, but the trail had been packed. We also skied the Red Oak trail which again was packed but not tracked. There's a huge snow depth so hopefully all the trails will be in great shape next week. Thanks to the groomers' efforts.

  We were there around 9:30-11:30. We first stopped at Red Cedar and it was packed but not tracked so we left and went to the Central Trail. The Central Trail was packed and tracked for the first half but then just packed from the small shelter to the Smrekar parking lot. We had heard from others that the South trail was packed and tracked although we didn't ski that. Regardless, a beautiful trail. We appreciate the hard work that goes into maintaining the trails.

  The trails in the Black River State Forest were not groomed. A tracked vehicle (probably the groomer) had driven over the trails so they were not skiable at all.

  I classic skied the central and north loop. It appears everything has been groomed. The track was set but did not hold. Significant portions of the trail had little to no track that held. Additional there were sporadic areas with exposed ground through the track BUT we have snow.

  Trails are in bad shape. 1-3" of loose fluffy snow ungroomed with sporadic bare spots. I skied South loop and half of Central before giving up and headed back to the chalet. I rode my fat bike along Central, North, and Red Oak trails: all are about in the same condition.
