  The inch of snow received on Christmas Eve was rolled into the base this morning, throughout the whole system. Only 1-2" base with no classic track. I would still suggest rock skis and caution, but below zero temps and blue-sky made for a delightful ski through the Northern Kettles.

  Greenbush received a little less than an inch of new snow yesterday. Conditions are a little better because of this but I would rate it as "fair" at best. Some of the uphills have a few rocks showing. I skated the brown, red and purple and didn't get too many scratches.

  The 1/2" of snow made the trails surprisingly skiable for skating. Got out for a Christmas Day ski this afternoon, skied the brown, red and purple loops. Not enough snow to groom but the little bit of snow on top of the packed trail made for really nice rock skiing in the 1 degree temps. If you are willing to brave the cold, willing to ski on rock skis, and do not want to drive - absolutely worth the trip out to Greenbush.

  Just returned the trails and was pleasantly surprised. As said earlier, it's not for everyone but if you have to ski... Jeff rolled them earlier in the week and it really helped. Bring the crappiest pair of skis you own, classic is better than skating due to rocks.

  For those of you who just have to ski and don't mind ice, sticks, rocks and leaves, there is limited, not for the faint of heart, skiing at Greenbush. The little bit of snow we received last week has been rolled. I stayed on the sections of Brown, Purple and Green that tend to hold up and enjoyed myself. With winter now being impacted by global warming, as we have been experiencing the last couple of seasons, we need to all be diligent in protecting the base on our trails especially on days when temps warm well above freezing. Each of us needs to kindly (or forcefully if you prefer) communicate with folks we see hiking and fat-biking on the ski trails, which leaves ruts and makes it difficult for us to maintain the base. Hopefully, we receive more snow than expected over the next couple of days and Greenbush can once again become the Nordic Heaven we love.
