  Started in below freezing temps at 0930 and ended in 40's at 1100. Snow started out crusty but was softening in sunny spots when I left. North trails: Have seen better days but are ok. No classic track in most sections, plus hikers and fat tires have left damage. Bare patches in a few spots but still good March skiing. The woods are pretty up there. South trails: People in the parking lot report south trails were in good condition.

  Good spring skiing. A quarter inch or so of fresh snow on top of a pebbly crust in the skate lane. Classic track a little shallow in places with some icy spots, but mostly quite good.

  End of day ski of most South loop trails. 33F so snow was hovering between crusty and soft. 9 Pine track was in roughest shape but still worth the trip. Pine needles in many spots slowed me down. Dogs left a fair amount of brown klister. Both tracks on Lonesome Grouse were in terrific condition. Track on Blue Ox were mostly good but a bit sloppy in sunny spots. Skate tracks all looked good on 9 and Ox.

  Beautiful snow, 19 degrees F and sunny at 9:00 AM. Blowing snow filled in classic tracks in many parts of Blue Ox and Bear Paw trails. Otherwise trails in great shape.

  Headed out about 2:00 PM for first skate skiing session of the season on Bear Paw and across lake. Gorgeous day with temps in mid teens (above zero!) and light winds. Bear Paw skate deck in great shape and classic tracks also looked good. Classic tracks across lake pretty thin, but usable. Could use a bit more snow on the lake, but still looking forward to getting out there again tomorrow.
