  Conditions: Fair but agonizingly slow. Just barely full coverage on Eagle Point when I skied from 11:20 to 12:20 but I'm sure by the end of the day there would be at least a couple bare spots. I used FastWax Yellow LF.
Got there way too late for any window. Had to be high 30's if not 40 degrees. There was one skier-set classic track and one bike track. I skated but walked and double poled a lot. Seasonal creek at far west end has to be forded 20 yeards to the west of the trail.

  Conditions: Skiing in April - good conditions.
Skied the west loop first. Full coverage, skated the 6km loop. Great spring sunshine. If this were November the trails would be crowded. Headed to the east side. Full coverage, only one section on top that I had to avoid the trail and go around. Anytime you can get a two hour ski workout in in April, it is great!

  Conditions: Complete snow cover, skied in tracks.
Went skiing Friday at sunset. A decent skied in track was set. It was getting a bit glazed. Skiing Saturday should be OK. The deer in my picture just stared at me as if to say, 'its over!'.

  Conditions: Good for touring. 5 inches of new snow, not groomed, skier-made classic tracks.
I knew it would be slow, so I brought out my wood touring skies. They were a great choice. Green and brown loops had good coverage and as of 1 pm had only seen a handful of skiers.

  Conditions: Crusty, ungroomed, some portages.
Lord what fools these mortals be. Thought I'd work on some V-2ing on the glacier in front of the lodge and then one thing led to another and I was putting in a loop, ignoring all signs, carrying over the dry spots, looking out for rocks and actually having a pretty good ski.
