Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Holding up good, in spite of warm temps. B Skis advised, dues to debris from the trees. Classic tracks set on most, but not all trails. Tracks are structured well, though are iced. I ski on klister. Loss of klister due to abrasion and debris collecting on what remained, cut the session short. I lost the warmer klister while retaining the base layer. I should have done a better job of heating/blending the layers. Skating deck looked good. Maybe a bit iced very early (7:00 AM).

Still going well. Lots of snow depth left. Unusually cold night (10 F) left a very hard base. Tracks not at optimum depth because of how hard the base got. Still, very good skiing. We had a few inches of snow during the week. With that additional snow, hard wax was working today. Skate deck was looking pretty good. Can't complain for Apr. 11.

Excellent conditions. Put a little Rode Rossa klister on those boards and stride your way to a higher plain. The Grooming Guru has suggested that the Teacup trails may be groomed through April.

Lots of snow, including some from Wednesday. It may last for quite a while, if we're lucky. Great skiing, met up with a couple more transplanted Midwesterners.

Absolutely gorgeous day. Clear sky, temps around 30F, well groomed trails, and lots of folks out enjoying it. Today was a skate day, and the snow was just fast enough, but not too fast.

Not too busy today - but a couple of inches of new snow after the groomer finished. So again a good day for classic. I did all the loops except for Mt. View.

Another beautiful Day. Mostly clear skies. Our groomer did an extra day this week, and there were a whole lot of folks out on the trails. The parking area was nearly full. The snow was, again, just right: fast, but soft enough to make fast skate turns feel quite safe.

Beautiful day on the mountain. It was a perfect blue wax day. Plenty of grip, lots of glide, but soft enough that I had no hesitation going down the "black diamond" trails. More snow in the last couple of days, so this weekend should be epic.

Great day up on the mountain. A few folks out there - including Steve M., from Hayward. A bit icy early on, softening up towards noon. Overcast most of the time.

The trails were groomed on Wednesday, with some new snow overnight. The classic tracks were great. The new snow made for great kick. Lots of folks out enjoying the day.
