Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
The trails at Pine Valley were groomed and in good shape. There was a classic track throughout the entire system. The snow was mostly warm and a little sticky, but some spots were a little glazed. I was on waxless skis, but I bet waxable skis would kick fine. The skate lane was a little uneven, but it looked pretty good for skating. The White Pine Loop had a lot of footprints on it, and skating over that looked fine. Not too many rocks poking through anywhere. Only one wet spot, that was on the connector to the White Pine Trail. It was a great Thanksgiving treat to ski on trails in such good shape.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
We classic skied just the White Pine loop today so we could skijor. We had the whole thing to ourselves with the exception of one walker on the trail. The grooming was impeccable and it looked pretty fresh. Classic tracks were great where they had not melted and the skate deck was full of footprints because walking is allowed. Temps were in the 40's but it was holding up remarkably well. Thank you for the great grooming!

Observation Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
I was at the Pine Valley to snowshoe, but was surprised to see a newly groomed and tracked trail. It looked perfect. Someone skied yesterday and said that it was a decent classic track, a bit ragged in spots.
