Best conditions all season in my opinion. Trail was groomed with only a handful of skiers so far. Base is firm and fast. Still plenty able to get edge and control. Almost no debris. No ice patches either, which thought there might be after Sunday’s weather. Wish we could always have these conditions. If you can get out before it starts to thaw.

Clipped in at 9am right as the groomer was pulling in. Spring-like skiing is such a treat. Trail was fast due to freezing overnight; seems like a cold base and still able to get plenty of edge. A handful of Birkie virtual skiers were just going out as I was coming in. They will have a fast trail and fun times. There are some sticks to watch out for. Almost zero bare spots.

Trail was in excellent condition. It was 39 degrees and cloudy. I used FastWax Yellow LF. The forecast had me scrambling to get to Hickory before the thaw caused it to deteriorate too much. Amazingly, the south loop and Highland Lowland Lake loop had been groomed today. The North Loop until the Highland turnoff was ungroomed with an inch of yesterday's snow. Unfortunately but predictably it was slow. Think I've been cursed since the start of the two week deep freeze because the combination of conditions and my wax has been frustrating my attempts to move at the pace I was pre deep freeze. Assume things will get better as I transition to spring skiing on artificiàl snow. Despite slow pace, it's still a pleasure to ski such a beautiful place.

Splendid track and the skate lane was even and solid. I only did the 10k loop but it looked like the other trails were groomed up. The Friends of Hickory Ridge did some improvements to the grade and corners. Thank-you for that smooth carpet. Its a class A trail.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Ski Trail: Entire ski trail was widened, groomed and tracked. Fatbike Trail : Riders reported that it’s in really good shape. A little drifting at the start of Burnt Wagon. No grooming is really needed so no definite plans to groom at this time. Not the best picture but things were really looking good out there. A few places of dirt here and there but easily avoidable. Bundle up, be safe and enjoy!

Went for a ski during the hottest part of the day today. Trail is perfectly groomed. Snow has really leveled out. Snow was of course slow because of the cold, but the skate deck was very firm. I was anticipating a bit of softness but didn’t think that was the case. Just skied the North Loop but all break out loops appear to be groomed. Tracks are set. Very little debris. Only skate tracks from about 2 or 3 skiers as of late this afternoon.
