Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
The Old Collegeville Road is groomed for skate, however a little a thin. The radio tower field is groomed all the way around, with very little grass/debris. The trail leading up to it, however, has a lot of debris. Heading reverse on Pine Knob towards the dome is groomed, however not very firm in many spots and with a lot of debris poking through. The first major downhill encountered on this trail also deserves to be payed attention to, as it is littered with sticks and roots. The final downhill leading to the practice field near the dome almost needs to be walked. Wouldn't recommend skiing down it unless you're on rock skis. The loop around the practice field is perfect, with the exception of a short segment where some grass is poking through. Everything is easily skate-able, and if you're able to dodge some sticks then B skis are definitely usable. Overall great skiing for the snow we've received. Thanks for grooming!
