  The snow making loop was in great shape at my 10:20 start. Car thermometer said it was 40 degrees. Skate lane was firm with enough bite. Softer and deeper on some of the climbs but even the hill down from Boulder was skiable with no problem. No soft snow at the bottom, no sudden decelerations. Even though I walked all of the Boulder climb and a portion to the top of Scenic going out and almost all of it going back, I was still able to cover the three mile loop in 30 minutes. FastWax Yellow LF had great glide, passing a lot of skiers on the long downhill stretch from top of Frog town to the short climb after the shack. Great skiing. Wish I had the stamina to do another loop!

  Skiriffic!! Classic skied this morning in the 8-10 window and had perfect tracks and the deck was awesome too. Groomers had power tilled everything and reset the tracks. Every one was toting a large grin and having fun. Pristine grooming on a stellar morning! Thank you for the excellence!!

  I got out to Hyland around 10:00 and skied a couple hours. It was a little icy in the tracks at first, and slushy later on. Even with the warm temps, the downhill runs were really fast and exciting. I think it was my "last hurrah" for this season. Many thanks to all the Three Rivers groomers. They do an amazing job!!

  All man made trails were tracked and skating deck was packed but could see many ski tracks at 6:30 AM. Snow was definitely softer than Thursday morning. The Boulder Ridge Uphill was not groomed since yesterday and it was icy mashed potato consistency. The downhill was fast but still skiable! Trail is holding up well and really fun in the early morning hours. Where else can you see the sunrise on one side of the trail and turn around and see the full moon on the other side.

  Another day, another fun ski at Hyland! We got there at 10:00, and the tracks were a little icy, and the skate deck was hard at first. By 11:00 things had already started to transform with the warm March sunshine. The no wax skis performed better as it warmed up. Hope the season keeps going for a few more days!
