  Mother Nature blessed us with about 12 inches of snow in our little micro climate on Spirit Mountain so we took advantage of it and skied Magney! The snow on the grassy portions of the trail was double that what it was on the gravel/horse trail portion. If you get out there today or early tomorrow I'm thinking you will still have something to ski on! My Zero's worked great and my husband's junkers worked well too...no clumping amazingly enough. The road is closed so you have to walk in about a quarter mile.

  Magney is done for the year. I walked to the snow and was able to ski some stretches, but there is not enough connected anymore to make it fun.

  The main loops of Magney are still completely covered. I skipped Bardon's loop with it's south facing hills. The classic track was good in the late afternoon warmth and pole planting was firm. There are edges and spots that look ready to melt through. I think it will be good crust skiing with cooler temps returning.

  Everything is still entirely skiable. However, after the heat of today I'm not sure how much track will be left. When I departed at 10:00 AM after skiing the system, the snow was still lovely rocket fast but by now it's probably going to be a pretty slow march out there. Save your energy and hope that the trail traffic will be light enough and temperatures will go low enough tonight for the snow to firm back up for fast and fun crust skiing again early tomorrow morning. Or Monday morning. Yes, the road is closed but the trail system is maybe only a 1/8 mile walk further down from where you have to park. I marked the "good skis" option on this report because I saw no sign of any rocks, but this is spring skiing and it will get more unpredictable.

  Was surprised (but understood) that due to the very poor condition of the road, it was closed just before the Stewart Creek bridge. Walked in no problem. The trail was in excellent shape for spring skiing. Very happy I chose to skate ski. Temp was perfect for one layer and no hat. A great workout. The connector to Spirit was also in fine condition. Any earlier in the day and it would have been rocket fast due to low temps at night.
