  Plenty of snow still available. Shaded hills with runoff frozen and dangerous, but easy to ski around. Some standing water but easy to ski around. The railroad underpass near the trail center is flooded and unpassable. Some walkers and dogs ignoring signage but they have not ruined anything yet.

  Beautiful day to ski. Was surprised to find that the classic tracks had been groomed, and were in very good shape. Skate skiers said the skating was good too. Tracks a little icy in spots, but mostly good fast track. Skied with my skin skis, and universal Toko liquid ski wax on tips. Worked well. All in all, a great day to be out in this beautiful park.

  Beautiful day, fresh snow, some fresh grooming. It was disappointing that the two of the most fun areas were not groomed: Oak Savanna and the Top of the World. The trails that were groomed were soft and icy but very fun. Good workout tracking the big hills. What a gift in March!

  Most of the trails are groomed, some are ungroomed but have plenty of snow and can be skied. Classic tracks are a mix of icy and snow, we ended up needing klister to get any kick. The section coming down after crossing the train track is icy, my companion fell. The skate deck looked even and smooth with plenty of snow, not many leaves or forest detritus on the piste. Overall, a great place to ski.

  Mediocre conditions due to poor grooming. Main interior loops were OK. Outer loops were rough due to lots of ruts left by the groomer. Disappointing given our excellent snow pack.
