  Conditions: Thin but skiable.
I skied the East side tonight. I took my skis off on the downhill behind the park entrance office. Other then that I skied around the thin or open spots by veering off to the side. They stoked the camp fire apparently just for me. I was the only person out there skiing tonight, but they added some wood on the camp fire. Best day ever.

  Conditions: Ice with bare spots.
Went to try some classic based on reports that yellow trail had been covered by truck loads of snow and groomed. Not sure where the snow went but not skiable. Tried other trails. Best was green trail. OK with caution and flexibility to alternate skate with classic when required. All skating better then classic. Looks like trail had been smoothed via truck and plow.

  Conditions: The park has trucked snow onto the Yellow Loop. 3-8 inches in depth and then groomed.
A HS race was occurring at 1pm. The skate lanes were smooth, the classic tracks were variable. The trucked in snow is chunky and it's not adhering well in the tracks. Much better conditions then before. Clinic on Saturday from 10am - 3pm Thanks to the park staff for "Farming" the snow.

  Conditions: Eagle Point was good to fair. Mid 20's. Grey overcast, again! The trail surface was uneven with a lot of dirt/vegetation sticking through on the north ridge but you still could ski through it if you were judicious. Did catch my ski on a dirt spot on the climb up to the Quonset hut. I used FastWax Red LF.
I had a late, 5:10 p. m. start. A 23 year old, California transplant chased me the entire length of the trail, finally passing me when I slowed before the turn north at the east end of the lake. I caught him again when he stopped outside the old warming hut next to the parking lot. Great boost for my 62-year-old ego. Took me a half hour to ski the 3.8 miles.

  Conditions: Good -few bare spots just near end (green loop).
XC skied green loop at 10:45 am and it was excellent. Some bare spots just near the end.
