County groomed beautifully last Friday. Upper loop past outhouse is really fun especially skiing in a figure eight pattern. Short and entertaining for youth skiers comfortable on moderate hills and who can ride a track around a curve or half snowplow if needed. Weekend warm weather affected deck but track had skiff of snow in so the track was not icy. The county groomed the main trail system with a nice shortcut loop along the power line over to the return trail to avoid the close sections of trail due to active logging operation. Total groomed open trail distance is about 6 k.

Trails were groomed and in great condition. Part of the trail is closed for logging but we did not go that far. First 1.5k is nice beginner trail. We love this set.

Very good to excellent skiing. There is a light powder on the trail since it as last groomed, but not enough to effect skiing negatively.
With the logging activity, half of the trail is closed. Be aware that the snowmobile track along the power line that can link the various spurs of the trail that are still open is very rustic (not groomed, not tracked, but you can ski on it). The open trail segments are very nice. See accompanying photo.

Logger moving in to harvest timber so County forester closed ski trails south of the power line. The trail south of the parking lot will be open (but is not yet groomed.). “Trail Closed” signs on each trail where they cross the power line.

Skied all trails of the outer loop (Homestead, Spruce, Becker Lake). Good tracks with a little fluff from evening snowfall. Excellent conditions.

New track set so go ski Saturday! If a big snowstorm hits, the parking lot may not be plowed open again until late in the week with grooming even later.

Zipped around happily after some bad falls at Cowhorn due to trail conditions. Lots of skiers have been skiing here so the trail is a little worn, but still very enjoyable. The only section that was not groomed recently is the one going up past the outhouse but it has been packed in by skiers.
