Firsthand: Classic Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Snowy and windy when we went out but well protected in the woods. No recent grooming but single track was well skied in and offered a good skiing experience. No ice and good grip and glide. The park ranger said he planned to groom later today if conditions allowed otherwise in the next day or two. These trails are for beginners but very scenic.

Firsthand: Both 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
A beautiful base and fresh snow. We skied Oxbow, Spring, Bluebird, and Oxbow to the .3 mile loop, where the groomed trail stopped. Doubled-back on N. Oxbow and had more fresh snow to contend with. Maps and signage are well-placed along the trails.

All trails were freshly groomed this morning and tracks were set for classic skiing. Full snow coverage on all the trails and minimal sticks and leaves. The cold and calm conditions made for a sublime ski experience!
