  December skiing in MQT just keeps on getting better. All trails within 17k at Forestville are now groomed. Animoosh and Chiwagi are the best I have ever seen; skate lanes are very level and as wide as the Noque. Skis easily get an edge and its fast out there! Gookookoo, Papasay, and Bagwaji have recently been groomed. Bagwaji was early season conditions with some pretty icy/deep rutted spots. They didn't mow this trail either, so lots of sapplings and legit piles of leaves are coming through the snow. Gookookoo and Papasay were logged last spring, so the trails are really uneven and dirty. If you stick to the Noque/Animoosh/Chiwagi, it will be some of the best skiing you've ever had!

  Pretty hard to put into words how beautiful and perfect it is right now. Classic skied for 2:15:00. 13 degrees out and sun. Kick was effortless. It looks like the lake effect snow machine is going to take a break for the next couple of days, so more trails at Forestville should be open soon.

  Trail are perfect, a bit soft, but perfect. Enough snow to use good skis. Lots of cars in the parking lot. I wouldn't be surprised if they groomed up to CR 510 and back later this week!

  Trails are in rough shape. The warm up was brief, but we got a lot of rain. Skate lane is super rutted. Lots of twigs/grassy sections. About half an inch of fresh snow covers the trail, so its not icy, its just super hard to balance with all of the ruts. Animoosh is probably in the best shape. However it looks like the some sections were not mowed -- hundreds of saplings are pointing through, some of them a couple feet tall. I'd say with more snow, the skate lane could be evened out again and new tracks could be set.

  Rolled with good snow coverage- no classic track set yet- but you don't have to worry using a good pair of skis.
