  Wonderful! After a couple days of reasonably decent skiing after our latest spring dump, it was finally enough thawing and freezing to result in pretty much perfect crust cruising this morning. Firm but not icy, smooth, and fast. Just three of us, with the whole place to ourselves, flying up the hills, flying down the hills, swooping through the trees -- great fun in the snow and sun. Just possibly, depending on how much it melts today and how cold it gets tonight, there'll be one more fine day of skiing tomorrow morning (until we're all crowding around the hamster loops at Wirth, Hyland, and Elm again in November).

  What a great morning of crust skiing at the U of M golf course! There was plenty of transformed snow and many areas to navigate throughout the course. I started just before sunrise and was rewarded with starting a sunny day on skis. Get out early, it won't last for long.

  Groomer was out while I skied some loops this morning. Skate deck is in great shape and the newly laid classic track looked deep.

  Classic tracks marginal, thin and nearly nonexistent at times. Road created for tree work is a dangerous obstacle requiring ski removal to navigate. Love that this course is available for skiing, looking forward to better conditions soon. Hoping the more snow will trigger grooming at the golf course.

  Classic variable, tracked, skied in track, blown over track and no track. Good for March. Trucks are hauling trimmings which means going over ruts, not as bad as photo makes it look.
