  Skating is still just great! Yes, most of the rock ridges are bare, and one walks down some south-facing hills, but I'd say at least 80% of the trails are fine. Skiing this morning was a pleasant surprise because the temp. was way above thaw, but skate deck was firm. And our Bogwalk project is underway - 1/2 mile of 8' wooden walkway across the swamp to allow off season access for fall maintenance and for hikers, etc.

  Skated over 20K on fast, super fast trails today. It's that wonderful spring skiing here and we've got at least a foot of base remaining. But it is also portage time - and that's great fun: There are a few places on the Red Trail where it's necessary to walk over the brown ground, but the rest of the system is fine. Blue is especially nice!

  Started to ski at 10:30 when it was 27 degrees. The trail was fast for the first 18 KM. By noon the trail was getting soft in the sun and slow. When I finished at 12:30 it was 37 and sunny. Enjoy the trail.

  Although we pulled our grooming equipment this morning, the skiing is fabulous! The trails are rock hard with just enough loose snow to provide a good edge for skating. Tracks the same - sometimes rocket fast. The sun softens up the skate lane by 1 pm or so - skiing is better for you and better for the trail in the morning. Fat tires have left barely a trace when used in the morning. The base is deep and hard and only one small bare spot on a south-facing hill on the Red Trail (always the first to go.).

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Rain on Thursday... Snow overnight, temps in the high 20's today made for a fine skate. We groomed everything on Monday and the skate deck is still just fine, hard and not rutted. The tracks were snow-filled but looked OK. It was not speedy today with an inch of fine new snow. Probably wont groom again until the skate lane deteriorates or gets rutted.
