[ Good skis ]
Classic skied purple and red loops. Purple tracks were in good shape, though a little icy. Red loop tracks were completely blown out around many of the turns, so I skied about half of the loop on the skate surface. Red loop skate deck was developing some ruts on the downhills and was quick, but not enough to cause issues controlling my speed. Both loops were firm and seemed to have a very solid base- great conditions considering the warm temps in the rest of Southern WI. Temps right around freezing and snow laden boughs made for an absolutely gorgeous afternoon of skiing, even if trails had seen a little bit of wear!

Grooming

We received 3” Friday morning and another 3” last night of wet heavy snow. All trails have been groomed and classic tracks set with the exception of the black/classic only trail. Purple loop is firm, Green a bit softer but skied well this morning.

First time skiing at Greenbush! Exceeded high expectations: beautiful terrain, well groomed, nice amenities for the skier. A surprising and refreshing amount of snow offered deep tracks for striders and a solid, level deck for freestylers. Carpe Skiem!

Great skiing today. I skied the red and green trails and there was top conditions. A few sticks and a few leaves but not much. Get out and enjoy!

Just finished my third straight day of delightful skiing at Greenbush on well-groomed trails with plenty of snow, blue sky, and temps in low 20s; seems like years since that alignment has happened. Classic skied all trails except Black, and track is in great shape with minimal litter (even in the pines). Very appreciative of all the grooming that has occurred over the past 10 days.

Skated 37km today - covering every trail multiple times. Perfect conditions. Glorious day on the trails. Thanks Mother Nature for sending winter and thanks groomers! Wish I could take off work tomorrow and ski again.

Classic skied all loops today with absolutely perfect conditions. Thought I was at ABR. Big time Kudos to our groomer Mark Sharon, he did an incredible job. Conditions on all trails both classic and skate are the best of the season. Fat biked the snowshoe trails in the afternoon, soft but should pack down as it’s gets worked in.

Mother Nature was kind to Greenbush with an 8" Saturday dump. Lots of work by Tony, Mark and Tristan made it happen. Everything is in great shape with firm tracks and skate deck. Thanks Mother Nature and groomers!

Can only comment on purple loop: Although soft on the edges, if you find the center ground, you can get into a fairly relaxed flow. Very impressed with the grooming!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trails have been groomed with multiple passes and classic tracks set with the exception of the black/classic only trail. High winds tonight were already producing drifts along the swamp so expect corduroy along with a blend of natural conditions at Nordic Heaven.
