  Cut and tracked the two short loops as in the green and yellow. Conditions are in the good range. Outer loop around Escanaba Lake was still in good shape. Mixed fresh and old snow for some really nice track this time of year. Pole plant and tracks will be firm and fast in the morning and less so in the afternoon. The gravel road in will be muddy in afternoon hours and froze in the morning.

  One can always count on the Escanaba Trail being groomed perfectly. Conditions were absolutely outstanding. The temperature was in the upper twenties and the track was fast. This is such a fun trail to ski. It goes up, it goes down, it turns right, it turns left. It does all that and more.
Thanks to the groomer for doing such an outstanding job always. Be sure to look at my pictures of the snow on the picnic table and the burl in the tree.

  Drove up early enough from southern Wisconsin to have time to ski the outer loop. Just a bit crunchy, it was a great blue wax day with fantastic glide. Hats off to the dedicated groomer (and all of the DNR groomers who have kept the trails in the best possible conditions all season).

  Escanaba Trail is in very good condition. Two inches of fresh snow this Am was mixed with some existing snow for a really good track. We had high winds yesterday so there is some debris in the trail, but minimal. Firm base, good pole plant, snow over your knees to fall into are good things to have this time of year. Cold weather and low use keep the tracks in good shape for a longer time. We expect to touch up this Friday unless other tasks become a higher priority or the tracks are still in good shape. If we have to recondition, do not expect tracks until closer to midday on Friday. I may finish earlier, so I will send my ski trail report as soon as I am finished grooming. I measured 22 inches of snow on an undisturbed picnic table near the research station this morning.

  3 inches of new snow this morning. Cut and tracked all loops. All loops in very good to excellent condition.
