Plenty of snow on the Mound — well over a foot in the woods and 5-6 inch packed base on the trails. Groomers did a nice job dragging the main loop today for skate and conditions were good. Unfortunately a snowmobile decided it was time for a morning spin and drove over about a third of what had been nice skate deck. Still, some good skiing to be had. Take care on the big downhill into campground. No grooming on Pleasure Valley but plenty of coverage. A well-timed outing on fish scales could be fun probably through the weekend. But walkers may have punched through the base by then.

Lot nearly full at noon, full at 2:00. Very good to excellent conditions with full coverage, mostly firm, medium depth tracks. Sun beginning to have minor impact in afternoon.

Very good yet third day after grooming. Squeaky cold and firm, mostly medium depth tracks, some leaf litter and couple drifted in spots. Walkers stayed out of tracks and with waxless skis I didn't need to leave tracks (they disappear on the steeper downhills). Plenty of snow depth, maybe best its been in years.

It doesn't get any better than this -- freshly groomed classical tracks, 100% coverage, only the occasional oak leaf to watch out for. Near perfect conditions.

Freshly groomed earlier in the day. The whole system was in excellent condition. Nice tracks. If I had to complain, I'd say they were just a tiny bit soft, but they should firm up with a little time. The skate deck in the campground had nice corduroy, but looked extremely soft based on the one skier's tracks on the fresh surface. Small amount of drifting in the prairie areas. Great job groomers!

Thin, with lots of leaves and debris, but still quite skiable. Lots of like-minded folks out today. Great to be in the woods!

Lots of snow at Blue Mound. Certain sections had been groomed today, but most trails looked like they hadn't been groomed since the weekend - it was still a great experience though! Tracks were generally good on uphill portions, but totally washed out on downhills. Downhills weren't icy at all, though -- that might change with colder temps. I didn't skate, but the skating deck was fresh corduroy and looked quite soft.

Beautiful conditions at the park. Skied the red loop. There is still some snow on the trees so it's very pretty at the park. It's amazing the high quality of skiing when it seems like the snow is so limited in the state. Thank goodness for Blue Mound State Park.

It was my first time skate skiing at Blue Mounds. The trails had a nice base and some fresh snow that was nicely groomed. I found it to be in excellent condition. Though the loop is nice, with just one small climb, I'd love to see more of the other trails groomed for skating. Groomers are doing a great job.

Gorgeous day at the Mound. Groomed, tracked and good coverage. Snow had just a slight crystalline/icy feel but still very good.
