Slow cold snow! It hadn't been groomed in a while (due to frigid temps). It was a good workout! There were some snowdrifts. Someone had walked on the peak loops, fortunately there wasn't too much damage.

Good conditions. Skied all loops. There is a lovely snowman on Bardon’s Peak loop. A few spots of dirty snow in the system that are easily avoidable.

A wonderful evening ski at Magney. The classic tracks were slightly shallow and had a few wiggles, but otherwise were good. The skate deck looked pretty nice with the predictable downhills snowplowed (making it faster but certainly skiable). The mystery runner is back with footprints in the middle of the skate deck. Fortunately the deck is firm, so minimal damage. Enjoy the trail!

Full Magney Loop was groomed nicely and made a super nice ski last night. Some of the classic tracks I saw did have some brush/pine needles in them, but I was skating. Snow was just also a little slow, but I think that was on behalf of the weather. No slippery or bare spots. It also did look like someone had run on the trails as there was a foot print track across the entire loop. Not horrible damage but it is there.

Couple of inches of fluffy new snow, not groomed as of noon. Soft, skied-in tracks. Beautiful. Lots of folks out.

Conditions for skating were great, we did an extra Barton Peak loop because it was so fast and stable. Tracks looked nice enough for me to plan to classic ski at Magney tomorrow (although it is possible that a few inches of fresh snow will greet me). Some leaves in the tracks but really not bad. Likely it had been recently groomed - no ruts of human body prints anywhere and the downhills were fun, uphills easier than normal due to hard packed, transformed snow that is not icy.

Magney appears to have been freshly groomed today. Skate lane was perfect cord and the classic tracks were mostly good. The one issue is the wind is spreading tree debris and leaves everywhere so it made the classic skiing more challenging. Some of the track was thin, other spots starting to drift a little most of it was hard and deep! Overall excellent skiing!

Freshly groomed today. Snow was soft, but still a nice outing. A fair amount of debris, and a few thin spots. Watch out for the icy road near the parking lot. Had to pull a couple out of the ditch.

Excellent ski this morning with pleasant mid-20s temps and beautiful scenery. The skate deck was firm and the classic tracks looked good too. Some tree debris in places. A few thin patches here and there that I avoided as well, including some difficult to avoid on downhills, but overall great snow!

Magney was.... magical! I classic skied in fantastic tracks that were super fun to ride on the downhills. The uphill tracks were great and perfect for striding. The classic tracks were well off the edge (which made for tighter skating), but solid pole plants! Enjoy the snow!
