  Had a much pleasanter--dare I say enjoyable-- classic ski than I was expecting after the winter warmup. Swix Universal Klister did the trick for me this morning. Only encountered one water hazard on the manmade loop and that was easily avoidable. Some dirty spots, but not enough to stop me in my tracks. Tracks were soft, but mostly present and usable. With a surprisingly large crowd of skiers (a couple of high school groups), conditions did deteriorate over the course of the morning, but then it was waffle time!

  All of man made loop is open. Snow is wet and trail is getting messy. Man made was groomed last night after close. All other trails are closed.

[ B skis ]
  The par-3 lot was full at 8:30 am. The trails skied fine but the climbs were soft and difficult to push off if you're going hard. There are a couple of really dirty sections (hence, B skis), but no rocks. (I also shoveled in a divot near the end of the loop.) I tried to ski the back 40, but I was quickly stopped by puddles and grass. It's surprising the damage mid-30s and no sun has caused. Wirth Lake was ice covered with puddles.

  Snowmaking loop was holding up fine this morning with temps in the mid 30s. It was fast surface, but just enough edge control for OK skiing. A few sections are looking dirty, but I didn't hit any show-stoppers.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  Skyline and Twin Lake Trails are groomed for skate skiing. The classic tracks were not re-set. The conditions are marginal but passable. Be cautious for a few icy, thin or slushy spots. Judy Loop is closed due to ice, slush and bare areas. The Hap Lutter Snowmaking Loop is groomed and tracked. Stay tuned for updates on conditions of other trails as they are assessed throughout the day.
