Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  I attempted to ski the manmade course just before dawn. It may have been the most treacherous conditions I have ever encountered on a groomed trail. The Snirt was frozen rock hard, so hard and icy that edging was impossible. However there is also so much dirt frozen into the ice that it was impossible to glide on the bases at all. I enjoyed the absurdity of it all for about 10 minutes and then went back home. Try again when it is warmer... or better yet go for a roller ski.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  After the continued warm temps and day of rain, we will stop grooming the Hap manmade loop until the weather changes. There is standing water in low areas and dirty snow most everywhere else.

  Stopped by as I was driving through to take a pic. Observed very dirty snow with the snow going down fast in the hard rain at 12:45.

Firsthand 
  What a difference 24 hours can make. Yesterday's good conditions for the JNQ left me with the with some hope that I could get one more ski out of Theo today. It was not to be. Snow is extremely dirty with no glide; not productive skiing. I made it one time up the 'A' climb and called it quits.
