Sunday, February 5, 2023
Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Conditions continue to be excellent at the school forest. While the skating deck was groomed more recently, the classic tracks still had adequate depth. Glide was terrific on this 25 degree morning. Hills were very fast, and there wasn't a lot of snowplowing snow to control speed. There is a minor scattering of oak leaves in the tracks, with the C trail having the most significant debris.

Finally got out to deal with the 3" of new snow we received last week. Skate lanes groomed up nicely. Classic tracks were reset as needed. The cold temps set things up very nicely. Trails are in beautiful condition. Put on an extra layer and enjoy the great conditions.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Trails are in excellent condition with solid classic track, skating deck, and pole plants. The only exception is the Ridge trail (H), which is rolled and packed, but no track set. All ice and debris has been buried under the big snowfall. Come out and enjoy a perfect January ski--lodge is open Sunday afternoon.

Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All ]
As the lodge attendant today, I got some feedback from skiers: The mid-40's on Thursday followed by consistent below freezing has resulted in hard skate surfaces and icy tracks. There is also quite a bit of pine needle and oak leaf debris poking up, as well as occasional grassy/dirt areas. The consensus was skiing on loops A&B was OK, but the hillier loops were problematic. Bring your snowshoes if you aren't sure you want to deal with icy conditions.
