  Snowmaking loop 5k was fantastic! Fast. Boulder Ridge was exciting but not terrifying. Classic tracks looked good. Go before it gets soft in the sun. I was there 9:00-9:45.

  The conditions today at Hyland were unbelievable. Skate deck immaculate, classic tracks phenomenal too! Hyland has done an unbelievable job - this is the best skiing that I have done in the metro area since I was a kid. Everyone out there today was in an unbelievable mood! So darn fun!

  Skied two laps of the 5k over the lunch hour. Overall, the surface is still firm and consistent, with only a few soft spots. I'd describe conditions as "very good." Things did noticeably soften a bit on the second lap, especially the south facing slopes. No ruts or grooves though. Boulder downhill was a bit slow, which was fine - and only minimal snowplow damage on a short bit. Felt pretty safe opening up all the way down. Good skis would probably be fine for most people, unless you're super picky about dirty snow - there are a few short sections. Classic tracks looked pretty solid all the way around, and some double-poling found them to be pretty consistent with the skate surface - faster in the shade, a bit slower in the sun. Get some while you can.

  At 16 degrees this morning, it did not feel like spring skiing! Continued excellent conditions on the 5k loop for skating and striding! Natural snow trails closed, but man-made loop has ton o' snow.

  Natural snow trails are now closed. Manmade trails are excellent shape and screaming fast. Have fun and be careful!
