[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Returned to complete setting a track in the remainder of the South segments we were unable to finish on Friday due to a part breaking. Also re-tracked the north entrance leg that got beat up a bit during yesterday's ski clinic. All segments have been groomed.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
All of the north sections were groomed. An excellent track was laid and hopefully it will firm and set overnight despite the drier snow and cold temperatures. While grooming the south sections a part on the groomer's track-setter broke, so only a portion of the south has track set - though all sections were dragged.

Really nice ski. Skied Central Corridor - North Loop. Fast track where skiers have skied a few times. North Loop had a few softer spots but they will be good when more skiers have packed it down. Happy Trails:).

The North sections were groomed a couple of days ago. Today the South sections were rolled. The deep, very dry snow needs to set up after rolling before we set a track. Once it warms up we will be back.

Skied the north side: Central Corridor - Cut-thru - East Leg. Thank you for rolling the trail and then setting the classical ski track! The ski trail is getting firm as more skiers are out there. Very nice and so beautiful with snow on the trees. Happy Trails:).

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
After about 18" light fluffy snow the whole north trail was rolled yesterday. It was groomed today and set a nice deep track. It may take some skiers to firm the track but we should have some of the best skiing of the season with a nice thick base.

[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Fresh snowfall atop some earlier set tracks in the week. We beat the groomer this time. There was some vegetation, but still a good time.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
We had about 4" snow. Did the north trail to see how a groom would take. It did a pretty good job but there are some areas with grass poking up on the trail. Not very much of a base but it is skiable.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
With most of the prior snow melted, I rolled the north section. There really isn't much snow, however, and in many areas there is a lot of vegetation exposed. May be moderately successful skate skiing. No track set.

While there is not a lot of snow, we used the roller on all trail segments. There is insufficient snow cover to set a track at this time. Even with the roller, there is vegetation sticking through. But for those who skate ski, this is a rare opportunity on the Washburn trails to skate before the classic track is set.
