  Conditions: The parking lot was almost dry! The trails had some grass, some ice, some slush, and some snow!
Snowflake is for all purposes, "done" for the year. Huge thank you to both John's who groomed tirelessly until the last drop, and to both Dave's who filled in when needed! The 5k was about 40% connected with very few long patches. Special K was 80% connected at the start and finish of it and 50% in between. The 10k has the most snow, least use and may be good for another day or two of rock classic skiing. this may have been my last time skiing at Snowflake forever -- the "digger" is already parked at Snowflake as of today!

  Conditions: Groomed powder over icy base on the 5km with some bare spots. Groomed today.
Went to Snowflake to try one last ski. It was much better than expected and surprisingly good most of the way. There are about five spots requiring careful double poling through minimal snow and one melted-out downhill with just a tiny strip of snow on the edge. In a few places the thickness of the base is evident by narrow melted gaps across the trail left after March's rainstorm and the streams of running water. There is a lot of snow left on most of the loop!

  Conditions: Great for late season skiing.
5k is groomed for classic and skate overall very nice with a few icy and open spots. South downhills have thin snow cover.

  Conditions: Great late-season skiing.
Went around the freshly groomed 5K and Special K a couple of times beginning at dusk. With the exception of a few thin spots both the skate lane and classic track were in excellent condition. An enjoyable evening ski!

  Conditions: Groomed this afternoon - Slick.
We received 3 inches of fresh snow this week and it was enough to cover some of the bare spots. Great conditions for Spring Skiing.
