Our first time skiing here. The snow was in good shape, however, the trail had acorn tops littered on it and some twigs. The classic track was good.

My second or third time on the Beaver Dam Loop this season. Other than an iced-over section just down from the parking lot, nice skating deck (see photo). Classic tracks looked solid as well. Thank you, Michael, for keeping this available to recreational skiers in the area!

Skied two loops on the Beaver Dam Trail. The tracks were solid in most places, and poling was nice and firm. A few leaves, but not bad at all. One rock in the track that was easily avoided. Mild, beautiful day. So fun to ski up there again! We also tried the part of the Johnston's trail that the groomer had said would be groomed, and it was rolled/packed, but not combed out and no tracks yet on that section as of noon on Sunday.
