  Skated all of Long Rider and Mary's Frolic this afternoon. Coverage was very good though parts of the trails were a bit uneven. More snow would level things out. Things were slightly on the icy side in a few spots but overall the trails were in very good condition and fairly fast. I used rock skis but you might get away with B skis if you pay attention. I'd still leave my best skis at home. Nice job on the shelter upgrades since last year.

  Quite a good ski at Razorback with tracks varying from deep to shallow, a bit of stubble here and there, and the odd oak leaf to avoid occasionally. Overall though, a most excellent time. Thanks to the Lions Club for the support as there was a full parking lot and parking on the road in the pm with lots of southbound traffic. Must have been the locals skiing.

  Groomed Short Cut and Lions Pride for classic skiing this morning. Had about 1/2-inch new powder to work with. Tracks are good to very good for most part, in a few short stretches shallow.

  We skied these trails (20K) for the first time and barely reviewed the map ahead of time and didn't have an issue finding our way around.
I skied the 'Long Rider' & 'Bruces Roundabout' to get in a nice 13K ski with a nice mixture of flats and hills.
My husband did 'Mary's Frolic', 'Roller Coaster' and 'Wills Crossing' covering nearly all of the skate trails.
Much of the trails were off-camber for lack of snow with sporadic debris of sticks and leaves but no rocks.
Classic tracks were set and saw people enjoying classic skiing as well. Snow seems more plentiful in Vilas County as compared to Oneida County so it was worth the drive for us. Were very impressed with their ice skating rink and snowshoe trails as well. The facility runs on donation only with a full heated warming shelter with water and indoor bathrooms. Many people were heating up there lunch after there ski. We will be back to either ski or mountain bike. Trails are open for mountain biking as well.

  What a pleasant surprise classic ski conditions were here. I usually skate ski the trails here and find them to be a great workout. However, today I decided to classic ski here for only the second time. I skied the entire Lions Pride loop and it was absolutely beautiful! Classic conditions were very good to excellent. There were no frozen slush sections like I have encountered everywhere else I have skied the last few days. I used my Fischer Crown Classic No-wax skis and they worked great. I had to break trail on the outermost part of Lions Pride but that was fun too.
I talked to someone who had skate skied here today and he reported less favorable skate conditions. He said the skate deck was icy and control was sketchy.
