Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We got 6 to 8 inches of snow yesterday so everything is well covered. Set classic tracks on everything except the ridge trail (the ridge trail is about 2/3's tracked). The west trail skate lane isn't groomed, and the ridge trail skate lane was rolled, but doesn't have corduroy. I plan to groom again tomorrow.

Skate skied late afternoon Monday. Trails are in great shape. Skate deck is a little soft but was firming up toward dark. I did the North and West trails. Trails have good coverage and virgin corduroy in places. It is safe for your good skis. Groomers did a great job. The tracks are set and firm.... I jumped in for some double pole work and thought they were pretty fast. Get out and enjoy, it is beautiful up there! Thanks groomers!

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
After fresh 3-4" of snow, we arrived at 11am to see groomer out setting tracks. Beautiful trails with great snow coverage. Some thin tracks under thick foliage spots only. Good skis are ok.

We were apparently the first to ski after today's grooming. Only had time for the South loop, and it was superb. Very good coverage. Great job by the groomer.

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Skate skiing was good. I skied the skate trail and the west trail and both were in good condition. There is some stubble in a few areas but it is minimal and easily avoided. Trails are nice and wide. Classic skiing looked ok but there isn’t enough snow for good tracks. Kevin was about to groom the skating trails as I was leaving.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Groomed all the trails today. The base is still thin, but everything is covered. The skating lanes are in good shape. The classic trails have track set, but the quality of the track is only ok.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Skate skied Wednesday late afternoon. Lots of wind that drifted the open field areas. Skied north to the end of the pines. Trails were groomed earlier in the week but were covered with a new 1+ inch of powdery snow with a descent base beneath (some small vegetation sticking up in places but not bad). Some kickers were there earlier but no set tracks. I used B skis but did not see any real bad areas. Was an enjoyable trip especially considering the low snow this year. Thanks to the grooming crew and whoever widened the trails!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Everything has been groomed, but not tracked due to the thin base. Most of the trail is covered and you should be able to get around the few bare spots.
