  Snow is firm and groomed but there are no classic tracks set. Skied the Fairway trail and it was in fairly good condition for skate skiing, but classic skiers may struggle. A bit thin in some spots - some areas have the asphalt golf cart paths poking through. It's easy to avoid the thin spots though.

  Skied the skijor trail at Baker. It was in much better shape than I expected. Yesterday's new snow did wonders. There were a few icy spots on the south bound side of the loop but they were easy to avoid. The northbound side was almost perfect.

  The snow is pretty thin but you can ski around most of the bad patches: Prairie trail had the best coverage. Don't worry about the crowds - there were only two cars in the parking lot.

  Much of Baker is very well groomed! Usual bad spots are short but bad: first hill on Hill trail, and both arms where Hill trail splits to Timber and Island. Would recommend to walk the downhill towards Island area but is short. Other random dirt spots are rare and easy to double pole around. Old school bring a dustpan/ shovel to repair those small areas and keep it open!

  Skijor Trails: Skied the entire 10k multi-use loop starting from the horse lot. Great coverage, ungroomed, but nicely packed snow over the paved bike trail. Too thin for good polling if just skiing, but awesome for skijor. You could probably classic ski the grass apron if you want to make a trail.
