  Skied Wilber's today - really fast but chippy. The Park's groomer is down, so the trails are in need of some TLC. Bring your good skis but also bring your skills. We have over 20 inches of base, no problem with snow here. Concentrate on Wilber's as the sun does not shine here. The trail is fast! Skiers are welcome to venture onto Bluff trails ( Perrot Ridge, Prairie Glade and Tow Hill) Trails are open to skiing, but these Bluff trails are ungroomed! Some folks may have snowshoed on areas of these trails, frustrating at best. Trails in the Prairie and Bay Loop area are in fine condition. Skiers rate them tonight as 8 on scale of 10 high. Some areas do receive sun during the day, this will slow them for experienced skiers. Plan accordingly. With luck, the grooming machine will become available to again provide a great trail to skiers. Get out this week end and enjoy!

  Many intermediate and all skate and beginner trails are open, groomed and in excellent condition. The Trempealeau Bay Trail, Campgroung Loop, and Wilber's Run below Brady's Bluff are all open. Others trails are open, however ungroomed following the heavier snow and drifting of the last weekend in February. The park has in excess of 32 inches of base, currently. The area is outstandingly beautiful!
Park staff report that volunteers are unable to access high (Bluff/expert) trails due to extreme snow depth and drifting on the bluff sides.

  Groomer reports that Wilber's loop and the Trempealeau Bay trail are packed and groomed. Wilber's is a moderate rated trail containing several fairly nice topographic changes. The Bay trail is a beginners rated trail that winds through the camp ground. All trails open currently, about 6 km. Trails are in excellent ski condition.

  After receiving in excess of 4 inches of new snow followed by high winds, many sections of open land trail are untracked. Due to drifting caused by high winds, bluff trails are untracked. The groomer will not be active until conditions improve. Please allow for staff to clean snow from parking areas and walks within the park. Snow shoe trails are ungroomed. These trails are available for use by following pink survey ribbon attached to trees along the route.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  All trails are groomed and in Excellent condition according to the park groomer. Base is at least 12 inches, the saddle at Reeds Ridge is slightly less as an exception. All trails were groomed as of Thursday afternoon. Friday night the area received about 2 inches of new snow. Currently (noon Saturday) we are finding frozen mist and fog in the valleys who knows is on the bluffs... Current plans from the groomer is a wait and see option: We will probably NOT be grooming until Monday at the earliest. Snow shoe trails are in excellent shape. These trails may not be passable until Thursday as the groomer will not be in the park until that time at the earliest. If you would like to snow shoe, inquire with the staff and follow the PINK survey tape highlighting the route. Please remember; pedestrians and dogs are not allowed on groomed trails. Thank you for being respectful of each others space.
