  Yippee for Spring skate skiing. All trails are nearly perfect, firm and fast even as temperatures warm up. We're into the portage season on the Red Trail, two south hills are bare at the top but easily seen and no problems at all.

  Another amazing day on Tilson Creek trails. Although the weather hits well above thaw every day, the trails are firm and fast day after day. Probably a foot of solid base. We are likely done grooming but far from done skiing.

Grooming

  Today we used the drag and Ginzu to refresh all the skate lanes, including the Big Bad Blue Hill trail. Skating is perfect, weather is perfect. The tracks are OK if icy. We will not likely do anything more with them this season.

  After the thaw and re-freeze on Sunday, we used the drag running before the Ginzu over all the skate lanes today. That worked well. It's great to be out in such nice weather! We also pulled two drags over and over the BigBad Blue Hill trail, and you can if you are brave skate that now - it's still bumpy and I saw a couple of rocks on the ridges, but it is skiable. One more snow fall and that will be just fine. Spring skiing is the best!

Grooming

  Yesterday we finally got the Big Bad Blue Hill trail packed with sleds. It's still too deep there to ski but ok now for snowshoes. This morning I ran the Ginzu on the Green and up the first big hill to cover yesterday's work. Another beautiful day! This time of year, the skating is great before noon but the trails get too soft after that - please don't leave deep ruts.
