  We were really disappointed when we arrived at Boulder to find it untouched and in really bad shape. It looked like it had not been groomed in quite awhile. A fat bike had used the trail and that is probably what it would be best for right now. The skate lane was rutted and hard packed and the classic track was pretty much non existent. We thought with the warmer temps it would be skiable. Hopefully they can get out and groom it again!

  We got lucky today for "Dog Days"! There was about 5" of fresh snow and fresh grooming for both skate and classic when we arrived about 1:30pm. We were fortunate to be the first skiers behind the groomers. The snow was soft but silky smooth and pretty fast. Some sections on Nine Pine and Blue Ox exposed to the wind were were already covered with drifts but it didn't slow us down. Thanks groomers!

  What a perfect day for skiing! Skied on Nine Pines and Lonesome Grouse just before sundown. Tracks were in good shape for dog day Thursday. Most of the tracks were in good shape with some curves undefined and a bit of forest litter but still incredible skiing (19 degrees at 6pm). Several cars in the parking lot and met about 4 dogs and their owners (all with smiles) finishing up but rarely run into anyone once we get on trails.

  Skied Lonesome Grouse and Nine Pine under beautiful clear skies and temperature around 15 degrees. Lonesome Grouse and the expressway at the East parking lot was recently groomed and tracks set. The other trails like Nine Pine were covered with a light amount of powder overnight but had been skied in a bit by a few skiers earlier today. The skate lanes seemed a little soft according to the skate skier I met. Another beautiful day at Boulder.

  No recent grooming. Lots of snowshoe tracks on entire width of trail. Nice and compact surface, snow a little slow due to warm temps (30 degrees) and slushy wet snow showers. I also skied in a set of Fischer twin skins which could have affected my glide today. Woods were beautiful, saw lots of deer and rabbit sign and flushed a grouse.
