  Parked at the east parking lot, accessing the Nine Pine loop. The northern portion of this loop is in very good condition, with the southern loop a bit dirtier, and some short sections to walk. Very pleasant and fun spring skiing.

  We checked out Boulder today to see what was left and it had surprisingly good cover and depth despite being out in the sun. We skied Blue Ox and only had one place we had to take off good skis for a very short part, the rest was covered as in the pictures! We also did part of Bear Paw and that was also in the same shape. Snow should stick around for awhile with freezing temps each night, maybe Friday night will be cold enough to take the groomer out!

  We were really disappointed when we arrived at Boulder to find it untouched and in really bad shape. It looked like it had not been groomed in quite awhile. A fat bike had used the trail and that is probably what it would be best for right now. The skate lane was rutted and hard packed and the classic track was pretty much non existent. We thought with the warmer temps it would be skiable. Hopefully they can get out and groom it again!

  We got lucky today for "Dog Days"! There was about 5" of fresh snow and fresh grooming for both skate and classic when we arrived about 1:30pm. We were fortunate to be the first skiers behind the groomers. The snow was soft but silky smooth and pretty fast. Some sections on Nine Pine and Blue Ox exposed to the wind were were already covered with drifts but it didn't slow us down. Thanks groomers!

  What a perfect day for skiing! Skied on Nine Pines and Lonesome Grouse just before sundown. Tracks were in good shape for dog day Thursday. Most of the tracks were in good shape with some curves undefined and a bit of forest litter but still incredible skiing (19 degrees at 6pm). Several cars in the parking lot and met about 4 dogs and their owners (all with smiles) finishing up but rarely run into anyone once we get on trails.
