Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I skied Hiram this morning while it was still below freezing. The track is a little shallow in some places where the track- setter was not able to get to its full depth. There are some lumpy spots in the track from clumps of snow falling from the pine trees as it warms up. Scattered forest litter but not bad enough to be a problem. The track was fairly firm and was not icy yet. The deck is a little soft in places so pole plants go to deep sometimes. Overall it was very good skiing this morning with plenty of glide and good grip for the kick.

  Set classic track this morning before temps got to warm. Turned out fairly well just some ragged edges in places. Scattered Oak leaves as usual but not enough to be a problem. We will have to see how trail conditions hold up but right now it's good skiing. Get out and enjoy.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  With the 2 inches of new snow yesterday I made a couple of passes to repack the trail yesterday afternoon. Due to circumstances I did not make the final pass and set the track for classic skiing. I attempted to set the track this morning in the subzero temps. The snow setup to hard for the track setter to work. At this point, its packed wide and firm with ok corduroy. There are some scattered leaves and pine needles but overall the snow is pretty clean. If you don't mind classic skiing without a track it should still be ok or if you like to skate ski it would be just fine. A track will be set again when conditions allow.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Hiram ski trail got it's first grooming of the season today after 12" of snow the past couple of days. The entire system is packed and track set for classic skiing. After the wind last night there are scattered oak leaves and some pine needles but over all the trail is in very good condition. The parking lot was not plowed as of 5:30 PM today. Get out and enjoy all the new snow while conditions are good.
