Absolutely great conditions at Kettle today. Groomed today, firm base with semi firm top layer of crusty corn type snow from the ice getting churned up. Fast and fun, been waiting for this for years! Great job groomers!

Great ski on freshly groomed trail today. A little soft but still fast. Wanted to keep skiing but don’t want to overdue it before the Birkie. Get out and enjoy it while it lasts.

All trails are in great shape. Classic tracks have been set. Did not see any rocks. I would recommend skiing there on Sunday. The blue section starting at N7 was not groomed. Not sure why this section is not being groomed it is one of the best runs of the track.

Really nice skiing conditions today at Nordic. The trail system there is very scenic and it was great to ski with my wife and son. Hope the conditions last for a bit!

Best skate conditions on Nordic this season. Skate deck level with plenty of loose snow for edging and somewhat hardpacked for good glide. Able to do all the climbs without stopping. Did the blue green and white. Blacks hills not groomed.

Great ski this morning at Kettle. Groomed, fairly hard base with a soft top layer in areas. High wind is causing some blowing and drifting in open areas. Mile 7 of blue loop not groomed, so I did the blue/green/white combo loop. What a difference a week makes.

Generally good skiing at Nordic today; north side of the trails are holding upper better than south end. Tracks were generally good but soft in some areas. Debris was mostly minimal; a few spots are down to grass/mud where sun is coming through. Blue loop at N7 was not groomed, but classic skiers had trailblazed anyways; it was a workout, but fun! Based on my ski at McMiller the day before, I'd say McMiller was in better shape.

Nordic trails were soft with some hard/icy glazed patches, but mostly enjoyable. B-skis to good skis, depending how picky you are. A lot of people out, as the trails would benefit from another grooming (though the line said they don't plan to until Thursday). The steep section of the blue loop was not groomed. Hiker put down 2" footprint holes. Surprisingly there are a few spots that have thin snow. Hoping for more!

Classic skied brown, white, purple, and orange. A great ski day - much better than 8 icy days ago pre-snowfall. Tracks were generally firm and speedy, with only about a half dozen small bare spots and ice areas each that were easily navigated. Blue skies, decent temps, very good grooming - our ski days this season are numbered, so if you can, get out there.

Skied the outer blue loop a couple laps around 6:30am. Trail was soft, guessing not groomed since Monday morning. Was 20F but still soft and slow in many spots. Tracks were good though. Cut off at green as last portion of blue not groomed at all but still great to do one of best ski venues around.
