Wonderful fresh corduroy and excellent striding tracks on all trails. Many thanks to Dave Challe for his early morning grooming.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trails were rolled, groomed and tracked this morning. Use good skis but do be cautious where there are erosion control berms as some dirt was pulled up around them. Classic track turned out well in most areas. I skied most of the trails finding some soft spots. It’s so nice to use good skis!

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
The grooming was finished this morning except for Roller Coaster. No classic track was set, there is not enough snow depth. I skied about half the trails and found them to be firm and fast with good edges, not icy. There is some corn snow in areas as well as grass and dirt poking through but easy to avoid. Overall great skiing given snow conditions!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
With the recent dustings of snow a decision was made to attempt grooming. Despite the thin base and heavy foot traffic throughout the system results appeared to be fantastic. Full coverage so far with very little debris after grooming four sections of trail. I plan to finish grooming the remaining trails and then ski in the morning. I’ll post another report on conditions after that. B skis, maybe even good skis!

Not recently groomed. People have been walking down the trail, creating deep holes and nasty spill areas---be careful.

Enough new snow but not groomed. New crusty wet snow arrived Friday. Once it's groomed it might be in good condition.

Surprisingly pretty good some track in some areas as you got deeper into the hills snow coverage was good. Do recommend using your B skis as there was some areas of dirt and debris. Kudos to the groomers for doing a good job with the limited snow.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Conditions have improved after the two dustings of snow the area received Sunday and Monday morning. Most of the dirt spots pulled up by grooming are covered by a thin layer of snow. The plan is still to not groom until at least a couple more inches of snow fall. There have been walkers on the groomed trails but that didn’t have a huge effect on a fantastic afternoon ski! I have yet to ski the tower trails so no comment on those sections.

Surprised at the quality of conditions. Most trails in excellent condition and well groomed. Several steeper hills in average to poor condition thus my assessment not to use your best skis, but certainly most of it is fine using your best ones.

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
The grooming at Hoffman turned out better than anticipated. I skied about half the trails (didn’t ski the tower area). The corduroy was still setting up due to the dry snow so the skis did want to slip some. There were a few rough/bumpy spots as well as some dirt and debris, all easily avoided. I would still recommend the B skis. The base is thin and we won’t be grooming until more snow falls.
