  The trail was combed recently for skating. There were two other skiers that went before I did on Sunday. Used Toko yellow HF on my stiffer Rossis and glide was great. Warmer moist snow with those skis work out well for me; I find it to be faster so hope others can find the same. No fluff on the trails, though I would like to note I only skied the 12k north loop today. The Tram loop did not look to be groomed rather recently but there are skate tracks so probably skiable. The base is still very firm so it might be possible to hit the trail with the right timing this week. Less debris on the trail as compared to 2-3 weeks ago. I think good skis are fine as most debris is easily avoidable. Still a lot of snow. No classic tracks were set. There are areas of the trail wildlife made holes on the deck so just be careful when you hit these short stretches. One more note: at the south trailhead the snow doesn't look groomed and there are some ruts; just over the hump the trail is fine.

  Everything groomed with big Ginzu. Tracks set everywhere. Skate lane is a bit soft in spots and new classic tracks will be as well. Tracks from yesterday are firm.

  Some of our group skied 16k Classic and other skated today. The classic track was good but the loop at the end of the Highland Lowland lakes was not tracked. The skate lane was a bit soft but very skiable. It was a beautiful day to be skiing!
