As good as it's been, in this winter of our discontent. Thanks to the hard work of the NHAL crew, getting up early after the three inches of fresh, light, crisp snow, and doing a fine grooming job, all the trails were all fantastic. The logging that has changed the appearance, hasn't changed what is: essentially one of the best loop systems anywhere. Hurry, it should be wonderful, while it lasts.

Very nice conditions. A little fast on downhills where snow packed down by snowplowing. Lots of skiers out there.

Skied the red loop 5 miles with my wood skis not knowing trail condition. Turns out I could have used my new skin skis. Deep double tracks no issues, good coverage.

Better classical skiing then I anticipated. With only 6-8” snow, tracks are well set. A joy to ski. Might be a little fast on downhills where skiers have snow plowed to slow down.

The trails had been groomed yesterday but it appears they already had heavy use. The track was reasonably firm and deep and speed was good. There were a lot of skiers again today. By the time I skied the red, blue, and yellow loops for just shy of 20k, the tracks were starting to show stress from the heavy use. Unfortunately, many people have hiked on the ski trails and caused significant damage to the groomed ski trails. Too bad they choose to ignore the sign asking them to stay off the groomed ski trails.
