Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Full ridge loop. Shortcut loop and campground loop all were groomed today. Base is adequate along 95 percent of the trails, but some shallow spots with small patches of exposed dirt were noted, especially near the Billings creek overlook. Mild leaf debris noted also. The other three overlooks have been skier tracked only and have full snow coverage. The long distance views from this ridge top trail are great and wind was not an issue today.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Skied midday. Nice ski, first time on this trail with stunning views. The trail leans quite a bit but there was sufficient coverage and a good job considering the type of trail by groomers. Sticks and debris poking here and there but easy to ski around. I had the only tracks so not skied in, therefore soft but certainly worth effort especially since KVR looked icy, uneven and rough. Classic looked good and mostly clean.

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
All trails were open and the main loop and the short loop had been groomed within the last 24 hours and had track set. The campground loop was groomed but no tracks were set. There was some tree debris (mostly twigs and leaves) on the trails. The small overlooks (Razorback/Schinnick) were skier tracked, but the other overlooks (Billings Creek/Johnnycake) were groomed/tracked. Conditions were fair to good this morning.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Trails were rolled last week but no tracks set. I skied the entire trail with lookouts. In several areas snow has drifted over the trail, and there are many small twigs down throughout and there is a crusting in the top layer in the areas where it has drifted over. Still, very quiet and beautiful and I was able to go around twigs.

Afternoon
Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
Park staff report: Several inches of new heavy wet snow fell on Wednesday. Park staff packed and rolled the trails Thursday afternoon. Since then an additional few inches of snow have fallen. Some tree debris is likely as twigs and branches break off from the weight of the snow.
