Monday, March 1, 2021
Morning
Observation 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
Trails are sloppy and icy for today. Grooming operations have halted for the season. Skiing is still permitted with personal skis, but it will be rough going.

Tuesday, February 23, 2021
Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
About 50% of the trails have been groomed but the snow condition is very wet and sticky because of the above freezing temperatures. Trails will continue to be messy and a little sloshy until the temperatures lower to allow for the groomer to run over the trails easier.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
Groomer has been out to pack and lay track to some of the trails. Less than 50% of the trails have been completed as of this afternoon.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
The south trails are groomed and ready to go. The groomer broke down at the end of the day so the rest of the trails cannot be groomed again until it gets fixed. The northern trails are not unskiable but are not perfectly groomed. As long as skiers are willing to do some skiing on ungroomed parts, the northern trails are open.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
The south trails are all groomed for both classic and skate skiing. We are working on getting the north half packed and groomed over, but probably won't be done until later Tuesday. You can still ski the northern trails but they will probably be messy, and no guarantees of a track set. With the cold temperatures the snow is a little on the icy side.

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
With the new snow fall and high winds, a lot of the trails are no longer groomed. Snow drifts are prevalent and the condition of the snow is very sticky. Expect a very slow speed ski today.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
There is some trail work being done to close some of the trails/make some messy and or closed. In other spots the snow on the trail is getting thinner, but is still skiable.

Morning
Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
Recently got a light dusting of snow (about .25") there are spots of trails that are still thin and is noticeable in the classic ski track. In the trail system the white trail is not skiable since there is some tree removal going on in the area. Avoid this trail to not damage your skis.

The trails are still groomed but some of the snow is getting thin in spots especially in the bottom of the tracks for classic skiing.

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Almost all of the trails have been groomed with track set in most areas except where the snow is a little shallow. Snow condition is good, only a handful of bare spots to be careful of.
