The groomers reported that all trails are fully groomed and track set. A few inches of snow fell overnight which added to the base. Gusty NW winds with some lake effect during early morning. That has cleared to a bright sunny afternoon.

First timer out here, and I had a blast! Cold temps and very windy conditions; lots of drifts over many part of the trails. Still, it seemed recently groomed as well as packed and tracked enough to get some decent skiing in. Yes, there's sticks and debris down but given the wind, not surprised. Absolutely beautiful area, I had a very enjoyable ski despite weather conditions. Mostly I'm glad to be somewhere that I can confidently practice my downhill tucks and there's enough snow to cushion my falls. Thank you, groomers, and all involved in this trail system; what a little piece of XC ski paradise!

Great snow at Wolverine. Skate lane is firm and flat. Classic track is firm, but shallow in places. Outside pole plants on classic side were extremely soft making striding difficult.

Well groomed, but tracks are getting wind blown in exposed areas. Skied the Wolverine and Cliffs Trails yesterday, skied Wolverine and Powderhorn Loops today. Skied about 2 hours today, very cold: average temp: -10° F; very little glide with waxless skis in such cold conditions.

The Pisten Bulley got out after the midweek storm, and left great conditions. Great classic tracks, firm skate lane, good pole plants. Some drifting in open areas. The trails were freshly groomed this morning.
