  Got on the trail about 11am. Skate deck hard, fast, lots of unevenness (if we're being picky:) but we'll take it. Was hoping groomers would make it a run at it today, but sounds like they don't plan to head out again until after this next dump of snow we have coming. I just did the flat, Wetland Trail and Beaver Lodge Trail to get the legs moving. A cautious skier, so a little too uneven and crunchy for my level of skating, but good enough! A gorgeous day out there and look forward to a fresh layer of snow! Classic tracks looked to be in excellent shape though, minus the few leaves in the way.

  Today was a beautiful day at William O'Brien. I skied the outer loops on classic and then on skate skis. The trails were all groomed and in great condition. I will be making a trip back tomorrow.

  Just got off the phone with the park staff (11:30am). Most of the trails were groomed yesterday with the exception of the Hardwood Hills Trail, Rolling Hills Savanna Trail, and Prairie Overlook Trail. I specifically asked about skating, so all are groomed for skate with the exception of those I listed. I'm told they plan on grooming the rest tomorrow. Bummer it isn't all open by now with all this snow!

  They are just grooming, it's nice behind it but it's kind of late for the weekend... At 11am they are probably 90% done.

  Classic skied all outer loops today. Very disappointed with the grooming! South America and another hilly loop had not seen a groomer recently -- bumpy and lumpy. Supposedly will be borrowing groomer from Afton tomorrow to finish the job.
