Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The park received about 5 inches of much-needed snow. All of the trails were groomed and tracked. We finally were able to set good track. There will likely be some places that drift in with the winds, especially in the open areas.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
With the exception of the Brown trail and the Purple loop, the skate deck on all trails was groomed with the Ginzu to scratch up the surface. Skate conditions are surprisingly good with a few scattered icy spots. Leaves continue to be an issue in the woods. Trails through the pines are thin, icy, and littered with needles and sticks.

I skate skied all trails Thursday afternoon. The deck is very firm in most areas. Thanks very much to the grooming crew as work to loosen ice on the skate deck allowed for an enjoyable ski! As mentioned in other reviews all trails through woods are a challenge due to numerous sticks and leaves.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
The freeze/thaw cycles and thin snow cover make grooming difficult. Almost all of the trails had the skate deck regroomed today. The exception being the loop through the pines on the Purple trail where the snow is very thin, icy and dirty. You will find poor conditions anywhere through pines. Skate skiing should be fair to good in most places. There is a lot of leaf and small twig litter after Sunday's high winds. The classic track has not been reset and varies from poor to good with most places quite icy with scattered bare spots. The best skiing is on Red and Silver.

Stayed on the south side of the river. Mostly hard packed and some icy spots. Quite a bit of leaf and stick debris on the trails in the woods especially with the wind picking up. Hoping for a little snow to freshen things up.

Skiing was enjoyable although some areas getting slippery. Most grooming still good with downhills starting to smear. Leaf debris varies but for the most part not bad. Overall it was a great time but will need a fresh batch of powder in the near future.

We were out early this morning grooming the skate decks. Tracks still look good. Got everything except orange and yellow on top of the hill - and we’ll finish that later this morning. Have a nice day.

Skied the campground loop and blue trail (to the falls), then went up the yellow trail and across the street to red and brown, and ended with purple and another campground loop. Blue had a lot of ice, but the other trails were decent. The snow was not great, but it was skiable, and I was glad I went, and glad I did not take my new skis. There were no bare patches, but there were some sections with a lot of leaves on the ground. The road connecting the campground trail to the yellow hill had the best snow (less slippery and fewer footprints and leaves) out of all of the sections I skied. There were a lot of footprints on all trails due to people ignoring the no hiking signs. The classic tracks looked icy.

Good conditions, some icy areas. Downhill sections were controllable. Classic tracks looked to be in good shape.

Mix of conditions. Mostly good, with some soft areas and some icy sections. Downhill sections were controllable. Classic tracks also looked good. Great day to be out.
