  Conditions: Skiable, but with bare patches.
I skied the lighted loops. Bare patches in some places, including a huge one at the bottom of the hill near the park ranger's office. Much of it is okay, but just be aware that the conditions in some places are rather rough, with the occasional grassy patch. C-skis.

  Conditions: Nice skate deck, a little dirt but very nice.
I skied the brown, green, yellow, and orange trails. Firm skate deck recently groomed. Shallow, skier made classic tracks in some places. Bring your B skis.

  Conditions: Skating good due to several factors.
Three of us covered most of the trails from the chalet during the Noon to 3 pm period, as the (ideal) temps reached 22 F. Thanks to 1) recent 1" of snow, 2) very low usage since that snow (we were half the skaters in our time slot), and 3) mostly adequate coverage, base, and moderately low leaf/twig quotient, we were able to skate without too much concern on 90% of the trails. Grass poking through in a number of places, but grass is better than straight dirt or pebbles, one or two icy spots, and a narrow passage over the bridge on the Orange Loop. Yes, should have used my B skis, it turns out, but factors 1 and 2 made for an enjoyable outing.

  Conditions: Ok- nice alternative to man made.
Well not quite as good as I had hoped but with skiing with B skis. Yellow loop is ok. Orange loop is not good near the end by the bridge. Basically hard pack and bare dirt spots on places even on the yellow loop.

  Conditions: Best of the year.
The skiing under the lights was excellent. I skated a couple loops on the Brown, Green, and Yellow. There was a little fluff over a solid track. It was one of my favorite skis of the season. I think I hit dirt a couple times, but it was surprisingly good.
