  Granular and some icy spots, but very skiable. Plenty of base except one spot, see photos. Lots of action on the downhill runs, nobody but me on the Nordic.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
  It's a beautiful morning out at the center; cold temps overnight have stopped the melt for a bit and the snow has groomed out quite well. We have a full skate deck refresh, but no classic tracks at this time. Surface is overall pretty firm, but the snow has become quite granular with the freeze/thaw cycle so expect some give on the push off when skating. As always this time of year, keep an eye out for any ice or slush that is cropping up through the system, it can show up without warning! The next few days will be colder so it will hopefully stem the advance of melt through the weekend.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Cold temperatures kept things firm overnight, but the next few days are looking warm again, meaning the growing ice and water patches that are. Topping up in the snowmaking loop will unfortunately keep growing. 90% of the snowmade loop still has great coverage, but please be cautious by the entrance of the upper loops and in the apex of the hairpin corner. Water is starting to move quick and the footing is a little unreliable. Deck and tracks are groomed, and we'll keep going as long as we can, but spring is marching on!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Spring is definitely here! High 50's yesterday and 40 degrees today are making some beautiful late season skiing. We have a fresh groom on the snowmaking loop which is holding its own quite well still, but the inevitable melt water migration is starting to crop up in some parts. Trails are definitely still passable and in good condition, but be cautious on the hairpin corner and and a small section near the entrance of the upper loops.
