[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  What little snow that was left after last week's melt froze into an icy base; and our recent light, blowing snow didn't give us much to work with, leaving many bare spots, especially out in the open. Trails have been packed where possible. Rocks and grass are showing through or just below the surface. Not enough snow to set tracks.

  We didn't get enough snow to groom today. Very little snow cover on the trails after the last few days of melting; plenty of grass poking through.

  What little snow cover we had on the trails is melting and mushy. Looks like conditions will continue in that direction today and tomorrow.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  We've packed some of the trails, but the base is extremely thin with plenty of bare spots. Not enough snow to set tracks. Due to potential equipment damage, ski rental is not available until we have more snow for grooming.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  There are currently only a couple inches of snow on the ground, so not enough to groom yet, and ski rental is not available. Watching the forecast; if we get at least five more inches, we will start packing and tracking.
