  Skied the entire Gold trail at 5:00 pm. Despite temperatures in the mid 30s the deck was solid and reasonably fast. They continue to Piston Bully groom. Trails that are open are Summit, Bronze, Biwabik Spur, Silver, Cedar, and Gold. Most trails are groomed both skate and classic however Silver is only groomed for skating. Closed trails are now Oslo, Wynne Creek, Laurentian, and Northern Lights. These are trails that have high sun exposure. This is a wonderful time a year to get out and enjoy the snow in moderate temperatures with extended daylight.

  With continued PistenBully grooming, all 60+k are in excellent condition. All trails are groomed for skate and classic except Silver, which is only groomed for skate.

  An after work ski around the outer banks and the trails were blushing with the recent snowblower of wind. The Laurentian, Wynne Creek, Summit, Biwabik Spur, Oslo & Bronze had nicely set, deep tracks, and surprisingly not much leaf debris. In a 5 star rating, I'd wish for a track to leave the South Chalet and stadium. Then while finishing up, another wish for a glorious ending... to have a track from the Bronze Trail, back to the Chalet. But the corduroy was nice too.

  Skied classic at Giant's Ridge in near perfect conditions Friday-- unexpected sunshine and mid-20's temps-- all trails were freshly rolled and tracked and snow immaculate. Crowds were a problem: no one was skiing,saw 3 people going our direction and met 3 others coming towards us when on two way trails. Easily a top ten ski day which, given we are in our 70's and have been skiing since childhood, is high praise.
