  Skied here for the first time in 5 years and it was great. Many of the trees have been removed around the chalet area. Some debris (tree branches, acorns and rabbit fur) on the trails. Look for the large gray fox around the 2.5K mark (where most difficult and more difficult trails separate). He kept walking back and forth on the trail. Lots of fun and not as challenging as Murphy. Deck is solid with a few footprints (saw a woman walking a dog on the trail). Trail is tracked for classic.

  Skate deck is excellent today. Groomed this morning and the snow from late last week has fully set up. Very little oak debris and the trail issues caused by tree clean-up earlier in the year are completely fixed with fresh snow and grooming. I didn't use the track much, but it did look a bit soft. Praying for another month of skiing on natural snow!

  Great conditions, with some foot-traffic from hikers, which I kindly educated about where the Winter Walking Trails are located. Great ski!

  Soft but good conditions overall. Freshly groomed on Friday. Buckthorn removal impacted the trails on the north end of the loop.

  Tracks and skate lane in good shape. They are doing heavy duty buckthorn removal, but just close to the trailhead so impact is minimal. The short hill loop and the connector for the shortest loop are closed. There is one, possibly two short crossings near the end where you will need to take off your skis and cross the equipment access path. But I did not think the conditions were as bad as an earlier reviewer. Rest of the system is just fine. The usual scattering of oak leaves (they do call the place "Terrace Oaks" after all). No walker damage in the skate lane yet. Saw what may have been coyote tracks, scat and squirrel parts/fur where the loops split about halfway through.
