  Trails remain ungroomed at Elm Creek. Skate deck was icy and rutted this morning. Trails are continuing to show more and more dirt. I think today was the last ski of the season for me. Sad it's over, but thankful we were able to ski into April yet again!

  Fini for me. Not groomed today (I assume done grooming) and it was very dirty snow with some warm slow snow mixed in as well as a few short icy stretches. The very dirty snow caused grip (mainly) and slip. Didn't have a 2X4 with a rag soaked in some kind of solvent to clean my skis (a la the World Championships at Thunder Bay before that practice was banned). All in all, it was a pretty good season and you could've skied some 137 days in a row if you went out during the very cold, very snowy and sometimes marginal days.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: Partial ]
  I was at Elm Creek Park from 6 to 6:15 PM. There was dirt on the snow and I did not see anyone on the trail, so I did not ski for fear of damaging my skis.

  Tracks were groomed today and were in good shape. A treat to be skiing in April. Thanks to Elm Creek.

  Thanks to the groomers and management for continuing to groom Elm. Skate lane was skiing real nice again this morning. A lot of smiling skiers out. Looks like it will be below freezing two more nights so maybe a few more days of local skiing left...
