[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Great snow cover and no debris on the trails. All trails are open and groomed well. Warm, soft snow makes the trails a bit slow. Beautiful snow on the trees.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Classic skied here today. The tracks were very good, even with a lot of skier traffic. "The Field" tracks were excellent. They were full depth and firm. The skate lane was soft. Great to see several inches of new snow! Skiing will be fantastic this coming week for sure. Thank you to P.J. for the early grooming of the snow today so that we all could enjoy it.

Plenty of coverage at Iola with the fresh snow. It was a bit slow and soft today but still great skiing. It should be perfect after it sets up.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Classic skied in 36 degree temps with a slight mist falling. The fresh 1-2 inches from last night snow was being groomed in upon our arrival at noon. Tracks formed at 3/4 depth were cut shortly after our arrival offering good, albeit slow striding. Always worth the trip! Plenty of snow!! Carpe Skiem!

Morning
Firsthand: Both 
[ B skis ]
The green and blue trails were tilled with the PistonBully last night. Skating is very good on the green and on the tangent trail/race start area along Cty MM. Skating is fair to good on the blue. Expect some thin and icy spots on the blue. The field wasn't regroomed but still skied well. Overall we have approximately 12 km of decent skating. Classic tracks on the green and blue are very icy and skied out in some sections.

Secondhand 
All trails (green, blue, black) are open for skating. Classic tracks were set on the green and blue trails today. Expect a few thin spots in the tracks and skate lanes along with softer conditions in the skate lanes on some sections. Conditions are good. Use B skis to be safe but good skis could get the nod too.

Good conditions on Tuesday. All trails covered nicely with skate and single track groomed. Some leaf litter to keep you on your toes but we met a club member that said volunteers were going to go out with blowers to address that. All in all it was very worthwhile to take the 2 1/2 hr drive from Dane Cty to get a nice day of skiing. Many thanks to the wonderful club members who keep this gem of a ski area together. If you go, make a donation.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
The coverage was thin but complete. I skated on my B skis and probably didn't get any nicks or scratches. The field area was a bit bumpy but all the wooded areas were smooth and the snow cover held up on the downhill corners. The tracks were deep enough, but not full depth, and well covered where I jumped into them on downhills.

Skied the green and blue trails today. Conditions are good. New snow over hard base. Groomed very nice as always. Phil does such a good job. I used my good skis with no problem.

Morning
Secondhand 
This week we received approximately 2 inches of new snow on top of our thin base. We currently have classic tracks set on the 2.5 km Green trail. Tracks will be set on the remaining open trails later today. A portion of the Black trail is closed and most likely will remain closed through the weekend. Expect good skate and classic skiing on approximately 10 km today and for the weekend. Good skis should be ok to ski on. Throw the B's in the ski bag just in case.
