I skied both the red and blue loops for a total of 14.4 kilometers. The trails have been used heavily since the last grooming. However, they were still in very good condition. The tracks were firm, deep and fast. I walked partially down the two steepest hills to avoid wiping out. I probably could have skied the entire hill but I didn’t want to chance it.

We received another inch of snow, and trails were groomed today and are in excellent condition overall. On some of the steeper hills where the track was listed, the snow is still chunky and loose, but this appeared to be minimal. The tracks set up really well.

We only received about 1" of snow from this recent snowstorm. All trails were re-groomed today, and the classic tracks range from good to excellent. On some of the hills where the track was lifted, the snow was a bit chunky and loose. Overall, trails are in very good condition.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The Ginzu groomer worked her magic today and the trails are in good to very good condition. The snow groomed easier today and I was able to break up the majority of ice and lay nice, full tracks. There are a few spots where the tracks are shallow, but overall the tracks are in very good condition. Some of the steep hills have some ice and loose snow, but conditions are much better than earlier in the week. There is some pine debris underneath the conifers.

The groomer’s report from yesterday accurately described trail conditions except it failed to state that the east end of the red loop was not groomed. Tracks there were quite icy and unforgiving. All other sections had been cut and tracked but tracks were shallow. Take care on the downhill sections as they are quite icy but still negotiable. I skied the red, blue, and yellow loops, all from the parking lot out and back for a total of 19 + kilometers. I would rate overall conditions as good except for the east end of the red loop which was just fair.

Trails have been groomed and new tracks set, however the base was rock hard and it was challenging to break it up. Tracks are excellent in spots, and thin in other spots. In spots there is quite a lot of pine debris. Overall tracks are in good condition.

Iced up. Very fast. Would be perfect klister day. My mohair no wax worked surprisingly well. Had kick and great glide. Wife used fish scale no wax and had no kick.

All tracks were reset today, and all trails are in very good conditions. I noticed a few soft spots, but they should firm up, and there was some light drizzle as I was finishing up.
