Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The skate and classic trails were groomed. The most recent snow we got really helped. There are still a few dirty spots, mostly on the south loop and the ridge trail, but they should be easy to avoid. The skate deck may be a little soft.

[ Good skis ]
Beautiful skiing today. Got about 2-3 inches of snow on Friday so the trails were is good shape with nice gliding, no grass, pine needles or dirt. My husband snowshoed on the walking trails, which are clearly marked. It is great to see that those who enjoy walking and snowshoeing can also enjoy this beautiful little piece of heaven. Thanks Kevin, for grooming and improving the trails to include more people. I skied the North and South loops.

Classic tracks are deteriorating in spots and covered in pine needles/leaves throughout. Skate deck is mostly in excellent shape.

For the amount of snow the trails are fun and tracks are really nice, fast (where clean), firm, with good grip. Occasionally will you need to step out the tracks for bare spots but there is plenty of snow to do so. Wind has blown leaves and some bark bits into the tracks, so I'd recommend waxless or skin skis. Skate deck looked pretty good. Just the normal "need more snow" comment because there are some sprigs and twigs poking through.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
All the classic and skate trails were groomed late Friday. The base is still pretty thin, so some areas are dirty.

Mostly pretty nice, not icy, about 5” depth in woods. Wasn’t groomed but was a decent track. I skied couple miles on the ridge going North from main Trailhead off County II.

Firsthand: Classic Observation 
[ B skis ]
When I got there around 2 PM the parking lot off of II was being plowed. Trails were not groomed, but somebody had skied the South Loop (and it looks like the North Loop as well but I didn't ski that). I blazed the Bostwick Loop. Thin in a few spots, but perfectly ski-able.
