Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  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!

Observation 
[ Trails Open: Partial ]
  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.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
  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.

Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All ]
  Trails are in good condition. They are packed and groomed. Nature Center staff was out this morning packing and grooming and finished by afternoon. Several skiers have been in today saying how great of a day it was for skiing and that trails were great.
