  Conditions: Northern Lights has deep skier made track.
Channel 12 news filmed and interviewed the skier behind me this morning so lots of excitement at Elm Creek today.

  Conditions: Skied the Northern Lights trail about 10:30 a.m. Several had been out before me so there were deep tracks. Glide was good.
I measured 9 inches in Maple Grove. My waxless skis worked well. This is my third last ski of the season.

  Conditions: Wheel well deep!
Broke out the mis-matched pair of skates and cut a classic track around the lake. Skied right from the car. One other guy on the course as crazy as us. A good 8 inches in spots. Lodge was closed, so no post ski hot coco. Barely made it out of the parking lot. Till next season.

  Not too bad at the right time of day (between ice and slush). The entire snowmaking loop has a 1-2 foot base and a fairly even surface; the sun takes out the ruts. The snow is sometimes dirty, and there are a few rough areas and slow spots. Skied between 9:45 and 11:30 when it was slowing down.

  Conditions: Well skied in tracks were deep and crusty when I started at 9:30 a.m. I skied the Valley trail and Northern Lights. The tracks on Northern Lights were better - more even. As it warmed and the snow softened skiing became easier.
Plenty of snow on the trails. A few skiers were out. It was fast and control was difficult in the deep tracks so I avoided steeper down hills and stayed on top of the crust when possible.
