  I skied purple and some sort of purple green combo. About 75% of the trails are still in great shape and lovely. However, the bare spots are no longer avoidable in at least 5 places (skis had to come off), and there are many very very thin spots and debris lurking in that other 25%. I wouldn't go again... instead I'm calling it a season. The groomers did magic with this though!

  I skied the red, purple, green and brown this morning starting around 8:45. All trails were skiable but they are some bare spots, ice and ruts. The downhill on the purple to the marsh is rough and will only get worse in the afternoon sun today.
The good news is the groomer laid a skate deck from the beginning of the green trail to the first purple cutoff. It was beautiful (see photo). You can avoid the purple hill by taking this cutoff.
The groomer had been out this morning. There were a few spots he didn't get and the contrast with the freshly groomed section is remarkable. A fresh groom in the morning after overnight freezing temperatures makes all the difference in the world. Thank you groomer!

  Skied at 8:30 AM, skating. Groomer has scratched up the skate Lane, definitely late spring ski conditions. The warmer sun is taking it's toll, especially on the south facing areas. Need to be done skiing mid morning before it gets soft and sticky. Classic track has numerous open spots to the dirt.

  I parked right off the road and skated 2 purple loops. Some of the downhill corners took me by surprise as they are icy and rutted making them difficult to navigate. I'd say 2/3s of purple is in good shape. The other third is fair and consists of bare spots (still mostly avoidable), and the iciness I described. Debris in the pines section. I was happy to be on my B/rock skis. While I can't go out tomorrow, I was thinking it would still be in good shape, though I'd wait until it started to warm a bit so some of those icy ruts may soften. Also, when I was finishing my purple on the two way section, I could see the groomer had been through (surprising given how minimal the base is), but the icy spots still weren't much better even with that.

  Strided purple trail on fat backcountry wax less skis from 2 to 4pm today. Track was well set by groomers but bare spots now make it problematic. Far right of the corduroy was best for striding. Good snow coverage for skate deck but problem areas starting to show up. Both power line cuts and the long hill at the back of the purple still passable if careful. South facing downhills glazed at 4pm as refreeze set in. Packed powder, firm in the afternoon, is the dominant snow texture. I'd expect it to be worthwhile for a while. Sandhill cranes loud. Thank you grooming crew!
