  Skiable. Just. Hills on the prairie are burning through, but enough coverage remains that you can pick a line through on classic skis without coming to a dead stop. Snow coverage gets better back in the trees, but a fair number of leaves and twigs litter the trail. Appears to have been lots of foot traffic on the trails, but it doesn't seem to have significantly altered the snowpack, which remains firm and fast and seems to be holding up well. The trails are really close to being excellent; I think one good snowfall is all it would take to get BC going for real.

  Skied Tuesday night with a training group and got in a great workout. Trails are packed and skiable though uphills have considerable leaves, some bare spots, and were starting to get chewed up in certain spots. Definite rock ski conditions but if you are cool with that, go get some.

  BC is completely covered and very skiable. Skied Silver in Avho's tracks also did Gold trail backwards. No real issues considering the early season. The leaves under snow give you a good cushion.
