Conditions? Excellent! All the effort put into grading and leveling the trail this summer and the patience and expertise of the groomer have paid off. New signage/ maps are spot on. Classic ski track was firm and fast even at 5F, as was skate deck. Great stuff!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trails were groomed and tracked. First section of trail I had cut to remove foot traffic resulting in a fairly shallow track. After that things are beautiful.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We strided all the trails here this morning after they were groomed the day before. It snowed lightly as we began skiing, providing a dusting of powder in the track. We did push down in the track sometimes, which made for an even better workout than we expected. There is plenty of mileage here in a mix of open and forested landscapes. We would like to come back and skate ski sometime, since much of the trail mileage had wide skating lanes. Thanks for the mid-week grooming!

Grooming

All trails have been groomed and a very nice, deep track set. Excellent coverage and very scenic with the snow still hanging to the pines.

Grooming

Most of Pioneer Creek was rolled and packed today. The UTV broke down and I won't be able to get it in the building until tomorrow. Grooming will have to be put on hold until we figure things out. Very disappointing!

Excellent conditions. Half an inch to an inch of new snow on a firm skate deck. Again winter walkers have left their mark. Disappointing considering the time and energy put into grooming and maintaining this beautiful trail system.

Grooming

All trails were groomed this morning and a track set. Trails look very nice but are a little soft. This weekend is the time to hit the trails. Grooming plans: With the forecast, most likely nothing will be done next week!

Skate deck was wide smooth and beautifully groomed. At times a little soft in places due to the warmer temps but firm pole plants throughout. Hopped in and out of classic tracks and they were fast. This is a hidden ski trail gem of the Northwoods! The only bummer was a pair of winter walkers had left their mark. Didn't see any no winter walking signs, which might help.

Trails are in great shape! I was classic skiing on Sunday and out on the skate skis this morning and the trails had been groomed sometime between the two outings. Classic tracks were fast and no-doubt stayed fast with some extra care. The skate deck was solid and fairly fast with just a couple very little soft spots on some of the hills.
