  Conditions were good on Saturday but by Monday a group of hikers/snowshoers tramped all over the trails rendering them virtually unskiiable. Everything close to the parking lot had been hiked on. I suspect if you get far enough out you will find trails that are not hiked on with the track still visible but we gave up before getting that far.

  Expanded the ski today for the entire East outer loop including the blue #6 loop. It was 23F at 10 am. Tracks were in great shape and decent for glide. The # 6 loop I have never seen the tracks as well as the sides just look like glitter was spilled all over. Just magical. And by the time we finished at noon it was 38F and getting sticky. Most everyone on the trails were coming out at the same time. I sure hope this isn't the last good ski of the season!

  2 PM Sunny and 28 degrees. I was told grooming was in process at noon by a friend. What a wonderful job of grooming! I did the east side part of the trail where the shade allowed for great glide. I tried the sunny parts and it was starting to stick in the kick zone (wrong kick wax).

  Perfect tracks! Grooming was even better now that they set a track down the long hill from #8 to #7. Ski was cut short with a fellow skier suffering an injury. So I did a short loop on the east trails to finish up. 20 degrees and sunny.
