  Trails are all freshly groomed after last weeks rain. In very good shape with just a little glazing in spots. Skied the Southern Lights and Highland trails. Only problem is some debris down in the tracks, otherwise great shape all around.

  Nice sunny warm afternoon to be out on the trails with friends. Black Forest loop is still has the best grooming. Or the skate trail that is also in good shape. Trails holding up pretty good with the warm weather and skier traffic. Snowshoed the multi use trail yesterday and that is also in good shape. Get out and enjoy the nice weather this weekend!

  What a difference a few days makes.....Sunday the trails were groomed beautifully, and today they are in poor shape. I skied the Highland and Southern Lights loops, and found ruts on the side of the trail and mounds of snow along side the tracks. The piles of snow made it nearly impossible to get a poling rhythm going, since your tip would catch on the snow on the forward motion. Also there is a lot of overhanging branches on Highland. All that being said if you are looking to go out and take an easy ski you'll enjoy the beautiful woods. The times I crossed the skate trail, it looked to be in great shape. And where the trail was a combination of skate and classic it was very good.

  Grabbed the B skis, because I wasn't sure how things would be. Should've grabbed the good skis, trails are in great shape! Nice to see both parking lots busy. Skied the Black Forest and the Southern Lights loops. Great to finally have Winter here.

  Nothing groomed but still had a great day breaking a trail. We limited ourselves to the easy loops because it was our first time out.
