Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Predictably, given the warm weekend, the trail was obliterated by hikers. Even in the open field areas. Still, was able to negotiate the system and had a decent classic ski. When it cools down, this week, however, it will likely ice up.

Very nice conditions for striding. It appears some grooming was done, maybe last week or in the middle of last nights snowfall. In any case, you could make out 2 sets of very straight tracks under a couple inches of fresh snow. A few people had been out before me and managed to "ski in" the new snow into some pretty flat tracks in the wooded areas. Nobody had been out in the open field areas as of 3 pm. As a bonus, almost zero evidence of hiking traffic! Deep outside pole plants with small baskets.

In the last 24 hours, the trail segments in the woods have been almost completely obliterated by snowshoe and hiking traffic. That, combined with the uneveness of the packy snow makes the striding unpleasant, and in spots, downright dangerous. It is a bit better in the open field areas. Hopefully the wonderful volunteers will be able to groom now that the snow is less slushy.

Pleasant ski today. They have not groomed since last week, probably due to the wetness of the snow. Nevertheless, a decent track made by skiers although your ankles will roll a bit as the packy snow apparently made it difficult to lay a flat track for the first few people out. Could use your best skis as no rocks showing but you will have to step around a fair amount of sticks blown down.

Great news. Just got off High Cliff at 2 pm. The volunteers had just finished grooming the entire system with double tracks in most of the wooded areas and single tracks in the open fields. We have noted in the past that when The Cliff looks professionally groomed, it curtails the foot traffic, at least for a day or two. I would get out today or tomorrow, however, as there were already hikers and snowshoers on the trail. They mostly were on the corduroy, not down the middle of the classic tracks. Thanks again to the hard working volunteers. I believe this was the first time there was enough snow at once to groom.

[ Rock skis ]
The Cliff was enjoyable today. The snow was packed enough that it covered most of the submerged obstacles but I would still use rock skis. There were essentially, no ski tracks and no grooming of any kind had been done. The best area was out in the open fields, where there was less foot traffic and less hidden rocks.

There was not enough new snow over the base which made for poor skiing with lots of rocks and roots hit. Also, the wet areas caused icing of the kick zone with resultant snowballs developing underfoot.
