  Ice and corn snow describes the trails as I skied mid-morning today. The temperature was just above freezing when I started out. I skied the brown, sections of the purple and the short downhill section at the beginning of the green trail. There were a few holes in the trail but I was able to ski around them. Ski conditions are far from ideal but it is still doable.

  Conditions: I hit the sweet spot this morning! The groomer was out rehabilitating the skate track when I arrived at around 9:00 (thank you groomer). The temperature was just below freezing and the sun was shining. The brown trail was in excellent condition until it joins the purple, shortly thereafter it was icy until you started climbing the hill on the purple. The first part of the purple trail is not bad. It is a bit dirty and icy in all areas were it transverses pine plantations. The downhill near the swamp is very icy so use caution. There is also a fairly long icy section as the trail passes the swamp. The first part of the green trail was near perfect. There is some ice but not much. I felt like a pro screaming down that hill. The green trail was not groomed as you go toward the power line. Cut over to purple and then back to green at the next cut-off. The green trail was groomed after the second cut-off.
I heard cranes and red-winged black birds for the first time this year. Spring is definitely here. Enjoy the trails while you can.

  Conditions: 2-4" icy base with a little snow sugar on top. 95% good-very good, 5% ice-double pole. Fast, fun and firm. Few easily avoided bare spots.
No classical tracks, only skating due to low snow. Only use B skis or rock skis.

  The groomers have done great work and the system is in good shape. The usual cautions in the pines and some ice but overall pleasant skating with enough loosened to gain an edge and make for good skiing. B skis at this time - no rocks but debris.

  The skate deck appeared to have been groomed this morning. I skied parts of the purple and green trails early this afternoon. The deck was pretty solid when I started out but softened up as the afternoon went on. There is more icy spots than two days ago. The green trail has a few holes burned in it especially at the power line but I was able to remain on snow the entire time.
