Granular and some icy spots, but very skiable. Plenty of base except one spot, see photos. Lots of action on the downhill runs, nobody but me on the Nordic.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
It's a beautiful morning out at the center; cold temps overnight have stopped the melt for a bit and the snow has groomed out quite well. We have a full skate deck refresh, but no classic tracks at this time. Surface is overall pretty firm, but the snow has become quite granular with the freeze/thaw cycle so expect some give on the push off when skating. As always this time of year, keep an eye out for any ice or slush that is cropping up through the system, it can show up without warning! The next few days will be colder so it will hopefully stem the advance of melt through the weekend.

Cold temperatures kept things firm overnight, but the next few days are looking warm again, meaning the growing ice and water patches that are. Topping up in the snowmaking loop will unfortunately keep growing. 90% of the snowmade loop still has great coverage, but please be cautious by the entrance of the upper loops and in the apex of the hairpin corner. Water is starting to move quick and the footing is a little unreliable. Deck and tracks are groomed, and we'll keep going as long as we can, but spring is marching on!

Spring is definitely here! High 50's yesterday and 40 degrees today are making some beautiful late season skiing. We have a fresh groom on the snowmaking loop which is holding its own quite well still, but the inevitable melt water migration is starting to crop up in some parts. Trails are definitely still passable and in good condition, but be cautious on the hairpin corner and and a small section near the entrance of the upper loops.

Snow was surprisingly firm this morning as temps dipped into the 20s last night. Everything groomed out quite well and tracks are still sitting at full depth with moderate firmness. Conditions will get softer as the day goes on but the sun will be out and skies blue! There's still plenty of skiing left this year.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Snow is still grooming out quite well today, a lot of moisture in the snow but a little cooler temps and cloudy skies are keeping things from breaking down too much. Skate deck and tracks are moderately firm, but with some give that's expected from spring snow. We are only grooming the snowmade loop at this point in time, the upper loops are deteriorating quick and some large ice/slush floes are continuing to grow across large sections of trail. We do have the upper loop signed as closed, as there are multiple areas that are becoming quite hazardous. The snowmade loop still has plenty of coverage and is still looking quite nice, but snow is starting to get a little dirtier and the winds from last night and this morning have sprinkled some spruce needles in sections.

Temps and sun have been favorable for us and conditions on the snowmaking loop are great! Skate deck and tracks are bothe refreshed and a little soft, but are holding together nicely. Tracks in the stadium are pretty shallow due to some ice that is building up under the snow layer, but through the rest of the loop they are deep and beautiful! This looks like a great week for some t shirt skiing out there!

Well, we have mostly survived the rain and thaw of the past week with our snowmade loop keeping its coverage and the upper, natural snow loops taking most of the hit. There is still snow coverage up there, but significant ice floes and slush ponds have surfaced in many sections. They can still be skied around for now, but travel up there is not recommended and we have not brought grooming equipment there due to possible damage to the trail. The snowmade loop has been groomed with new tracks, but snow conditions have made the tracks variable in depth and condition. Its a little icy out there, but should soften up when the sun comes out.

Spring skiing has arrived! We recorded 4 moderately wet inches of snow yesterday and it has incorporated well into the existing snow pack. Trails are looking beautiful with temps getting towards freezing today, and should hold up well throughout the day. Today's the day to enjoy the sun and snow!
