  Tracks on the south trails in the woods are holding well, with good glide. One loop was tracked on the north trails (around the tower and Prairie Garden Loop), but any trails out in the open have been drifting in. Unfortunately, additional grooming won't be possible until the middle of next week due to a broken-down snowmobile.

  South trails (around the pond and in the woods) have been packed and tracked and are in good shape! North trails are not yet groomed due to drifting and bare patches from yesterday's strong wind.

  Almost all of the trails are groomed. South trails in the woods have decent snow coverage over the ice and have been packed and tracked. Tracks on the south trails are really nice; north trails have areas that have blown clean, but tracks have been set on most of the trails. The corduroy for skate-skiing is really nice, even on the north trails. Ski rental will be open over the weekend!

  The weekend's thaw and rain melted many of our ski trails down to the grass or left slushy puddles that have now frozen into uneven ice. Hoping for more snow to make re-grooming possible.

  Since the temperature has been up above freezing all day the snow has become wet and sort of slushy. A lot of traffic out there today. Conditions were much more preferable in the morning than afternoon. There is still enough snow and trails are still ski-able.
