Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  All trails are groomed and classic tracks are set. A couple thin spots in the open areas, but very much avoidable. I'm using good skis.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We are about 80% done, packed and tracked. Main Loop, North Meadow, Upper Hollow are groomed. Sunset Meadow, Central Meadow and some of the connector trails should be done tonight. Conditions are excellent.

  Skated there this morning and on Monday. Due to the warm temps and skier use the trails are a mix of icy, and hardpack and have degraded from Monday. The inner loop trails were in the best shape with no leaf litter and not icy. There is significant leaf litter in the woods and the classic tracks had a lot of leaves in them.

  Second stop of the day, first time skiing at Jackson. Found the trail after a drive around this community. There is no parking lot, no signs, and no public shelter. When you enter the development, stay right at the tall blue structure/belltower?, parallel park on the western most street, and hike a few yards onto the main groomed loop. Saw no signage, trails are not really marked, everything seems to be 2-way. Lots of small loops and cutoffs forking off of the main loop that circles the entire development. All groomed for skate and classic a couple of days ago. These trails vary greatly from gentle rolling prairie, to steep, narrow, technical. Conditions were mixed, nice packed powder in some spots, some rutted icy sections, and a few bare spots mixed in. Again, B skis recommended. This place would be phenomenal after a few fresh inches of snow and a re-groom.

  Excellent conditions! Nice deep classic tracks and great skating lane! My wife skated and I did classic around the main loop. What a beautiful and well groomed trail system!
