Observation 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Grooming operations have stopped for the year. Last grooming was March 11th. There are still tracks visible from the last grooming but depth and debris vary throughout the different trails.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  Trails have not been groomed since Monday. Classic loops still have track. Lots of debris and ice. Light snow this morning will help cover the ice but use caution. Poor conditions overall.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  Trail conditions were decimated with the recent warm temps and rain. Lots of debris working its way to the top as the snow melts. Last grooming was Monday. Unless we get more snow, grooming operations will no longer continue. Conditions are very poor.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  The weekend winds left a large amount of debris in the trail. Even with the fresh few inches of snow, it didn't cover the debris. Tracks and deck are firm but will change as temperatures fluctuate. The skater's loop is in good condition. Still only open to the warming shelter. Overall good conditions.

Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  As the groomer reported, the red loop was not groomed past the shelter. I decided to break trail with my classic skis anyway. That was quite a workout and it took me several hours. The drifts at the end of the lake were quite deep. The results of earlier grooming were barely visible. The classic trail from the shelter to the parking lot was heavily littered with forest debris which made conditions on that segment very poor. I do not know whether the rest of the blue, green, and yellow trails also had forest debris but I suspect they may have.
