  Conditions: Firm and icy this morning.
I skied the red loop starting at 8:00 am. The track was firm but icy. You just had to hang on for the ride! The trail was groomed yesterday.

  Conditions: All tracked this morning and in very good condition!
About 5" new snow. The new snow was very heavy and brought down lots of branches. I removed all the large ones and a lot of the small ones while grooming, but didn't get them all. All things considered, it's hard to believe the trail is in this good of shape at the end of March!

  Conditions: Excellent! The trail was recently groomed and it looks like many skiers have taken advantage of Spring skiing.
With the weather forecast for today calling for a mixed bag, I decided to head out early while conditions were still good. I skied the red loop starting at 7:30am. The trail was actually a bit slow but the trail itself was well groomed. It started to mist after about an hour and a half which made the trail much faster. After finishing the red loop, I skied the yellow loop and it was fast and fun. This trail is one of my favorites!

  Conditions: Striding: Primo!
Saw Dan comments on grooming and we made a special trip to make sure we got to ski. Conditions on Sunday were perfect, awesome track, blue skies, 18 degrees and one of the best narrow, single track trails in Wisconsin! Curvy, lots of ups and downs (no tracks on downhills of course), snow on the trees, amazing glide. This is the best I have ever seen Escanaba and I have been skiing it for over 20 years. Thanks Dan for amazing grooming and the report on Skinnyski.

  Conditions: Excellent for classic.
It was so worth the drive from Madison for one last hurrah. Thanks to Dan and the DNR folks for taking such good care of this beautiful trail. It was groomed and tracked perfectly.
