  Great snow on manmade, solid base on West End trails, East End trails not open (as far as I could tell). A few places where a bit of grass was poking through, but nothing unavoidable or treacherous. Only manmade is tracked. It's quite good, get out and celebrate winter finally arriving in Madison!

  The fresh powder at Elver has the full trail system very close to great skiing. West trails were rolled, but not groomed yet, and it looked like some ventured out anyway. The snowmaking loop was in great shape and the skate deck, along with the hill climb were still very soft with all of the new cold powder.

  The loop at Elver Park is still going strong, and offers a good almost-kilometer of skiing amidst a sea of brown. The skate deck has become very sugary and a bit icy in others with the lower temps, combined with the man-made snow. Overall, it is very skiable and the classic tracks are nice and firm. Get out and enjoy it!

  The made snow survives! Less than 1k was groomed. Full coverage. Some dirt, but overall, amazing that we still have a loop.

  The man-made loop (~1 km) is groomed with classic tracks set. Good conditions, with the new snow. Blue extra wax worked well for me. It's nice to be able to ski on fresh snow.
