I skied the blue trail, starting at 4pm. As expected, it was a mixture of fast, somewhat icy spots, and some softer spots, which is to be expected on such a beautiful warm day. However, what I did not expect, and was blessed with, was to find a perfect coverage throughout, a solid base, and beautifully traced tracks! I must have been the only one skiing there today, or very few people did. The tracks were deep, well-set for the entire 6k, with very few washouts, if any. A few debris, mostly leaves, but nothing to worry about. I had the entire area to myself; no other cars in the parking lot. A beautiful light through the trees as the sun was setting. Thank you for the grooming and keeping this area so beautiful and in such great conditions! Excellent signage, by the way.

The trail was last tracked on Monday. Overall trail conditions remain good. Please note trails will likely be icy in the morning and soft in the afternoon depending on daily temperatures and cloud cover.

I hadn't skied this classic only trail in years and hit it today. Note: this trail system is all one way - clockwise. There is no signage at the Trailhead or on the maps to inform you of this, and no way to self correct via the connector loops, which are also one way (it doesn't make sense those are one way but just roll with it). Clockwise! I loved this system; it's doubletracked, the trail is wide and open so debris in the trail is not a huge issue.  Tracks were deep enough in most areas and debris free; they should  hold up well enough until warm up comes. Get out there and enjoy this underused and underrated trail! You'll find the rollers on the first red loop extension; rest of system is quite flat.

I arrived around 12:30 pm to tracks that had received around two inches of wet heavy snow the night before. There had been one other skier ahead of me but that skier turned around just past the first intersection. Therefore, I was the first skier for breaking trail through the new snow for 95% of the red loop. The tracks were soft and I sinking down with each stride. I skied back to the parking lot and back out again to ski the green trail. Several more skiers had arrived since my initial departure and skied the yellow loop. The tracks had been skied in pretty well by this time and were much firmer. Control on the downhills was slow but good on the downhills except for the green connector. That connector had not been skied in and the snow was particularly wet making control on the downhills difficult. Overall, it was a great day of classic skiing.

Excellent conditions! I skied the blue run. Double tracks for the entire trail. Beautifully tracked. Even though there were a few cars in the parking lot, I was alone to ski the entire time. Cute little shelter at the yellow intersection. Thank you so much!
