  Disappointed grooming has stopped, there is ample base on the eastern loops. Having said that a small river has bisected western end of western loop. East loops though were firm and glide was decent, few grabby spots at 2-3:30 PM.

  Took a chance that there might be some tolerable skiing at Eagle Point. A 10 foot wide melt water stream running across the far western end of the trail put an end to that delusion. I had already detoured around one stretch of frozen puddles by that point. Turned out it probably was not necessary if you don't mind skiing across ice. My right inside ankle was burning by that point of my return so maybe my body was also telling me the season was done.

  Wonderful spring skate skiing. I was out at 2 pm and the snow had softened enough to grip an edge but had not turned to mush. A little icier in the shade and skiing over a few frozen puddles. Was mostly pretty fast. Expect the same tomorrow late morning to mid afternoon. One place for a short distance someone had walked through the softened snow with boots and the bootprints froze into holes and mounds. I wish they kept it skiing only til the snow base is gone.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  All grooming has been suspended for the season due to the warm temperatures and rain. The lights have been turned off. Trails are no longer designated ski trails. Thanks to everyone who provided comments and photos during the ski season.

  Skate lane looked perfect. Well formed classic tracks, variable soft and glazed. Oak leaves have diminished for today anyway. Lots of ski friends out today as we squeezed out another precious ski and thanks to the great grooming! Guess the rain must come so we can bike, hike, etc. Love the seasons!
