Afternoon
Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
The trails are slushy after the week of warmer weather. Even with the few inches that fell on Sunday, it won't stay long. If you do try to ski, B or rock skis are advised.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Beautiful outing in a light snow, so plenty of fresh stuff to ski on. Trails were skied in on the upper sections, but had to bushwhack over footprints on Trout Lily and the areas near the prison. Should set up nicely when groomed. Sticky snow forced several stops to clean off kick zone, but otherwise a great ski.

Revisiting trails I have not skied in a couple years. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember the trail layout, and I got a little lost. Used Toko performance blue glide wax. Start Black Tar wax for kick. Trails in pretty nice shape over all. Seems to have been groomed recently. These trails are multi-use, but have fewer boot prints than many metro dedicated trails.

Freshly groomed tracks, fast and solid, fresh snow really made a big difference. I only skied the lower section because of the wind.

All trails were groomed Saturday morning. Not all trails could be tracked. Parts of Raccoon, Deer and Trout Lilly were only packed and could not be tracked because of wet and/or limited snow.

Trails were packed after the first snowfall on Dec 23 and then packed and tracked this morning after more snow. Beautiful ski tracks!
