  I skated the regular 6k blue loop without any issues. There were a few sketchy areas but they were easy to ski around. I classic skied the same 6k blue loop and then connected to the red loop for the full 10k. The remaining 4K of the red loop was much dirtier with many short sections of the trail where dirt had been turned up by the groomer. It was still a good ski with no discernible damage to my classic skis. It was a great early season ski.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
  The ski trail was groomed today and is in mostly decent shape with some thin and dirty sections. With warm, sunny weather forecast for the weekend though, conditions will be changing. Some recommendationss if you are planning on coming to WinMan this weekend: Get on the trails early if you're biking or skiing. If you're skiing one of the longer loops, take the '6K Easy' option at signpost F to bypass some pretty dirty trail. Don't ski the 10K loop past signpost L and instead return via the 7.5K loop (see second picture to get an idea of trail conditions out that way). Bring your rock skis. Bring snowshoes and enjoy the warm sunny weather exploring our snowshoe trails.

[ Good skis ]
  This was my first time at WinMan. What an awesome place. Beautiful warming hut, lots of kind and happy people and multiple winter sports options. My friend and I skied the green and red trails. Both were in very good shape. Good coverage with a few marginal spots that you could easily avoid. There were two times I felt grabbers on my ski bases but for the most part, there were no trail issues. I saw a lot of fat bikers having fun and several other skiers. This is a wonderful place. I hope to visit again.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We picked a few inches of fresh snow on Wednesday and a few more on Thursday and were out grooming almost everyday this week, leveling out the trails. Last night the entire snowshoe system was groomed and today the 8 miles of fat bike and the entire ski trail (minus Out-n-Back) got the treatment. I did try setting track on the 2.5K loop but was still getting into dirt in spots so will wait until we get more snow. Conditions on all the trails this weekend should be excellent.
Scheduling: The local middle and high school ski team will be here on Saturday from 9AM to 3PM for a practice session - we are expecting 50-60 kids and parents during that period. You have been warned! We will probably be out grooming again Sunday morning to clean everything up.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  We picked up a few inches of fresh snow overnight and this morning and tidied up all the snowshoe and ski trails this afternoon. Conditions are improving but still have a few bumpy sections.
