Skated the Skijoring loop mid morning Friday and it was surprisingly good. 90% good condition with a few bare and icy spots. Other than the sand - gravel by the parking lot I kept my rock skis on the whole time (with some walking on grassy spots). Was getting soft by the time air temp hit 40. Checked out the golf course trails and they were generally not as good. Should be good for one last hurrah on Saturday morning from 9-11 and perhaps even around sun-up on Sunday.

Groomed on Friday. An inch or so of new light snow covered the course this afternoon. Conditions were good for skating - skied most of the trails. Classic tracks looked good also.

My first visit these trails did not disappoint. Fantastic grooming... Wide trails with firm skate deck and double set tracks. A dusting of new snow and the cold temps made for bomber kick. There was a minor bit of drifting in open areas (I did not venture into the golf course), and a few places with oak leaves in tracks, which were easy to avoid by stepping on the deck. I appreciated that groomers had left snow at areas where ski paths cross the plowed walking/biking paths. They also have good maps and signage directing walkers to the plowed paths so foot traffic on the ski trail was pretty much only at intersections. Thanks for a fun visit, Bunker Hills!

Started from the golf club house at 11:30, went up to the purple and orange loops, then returned on the west side of the green golf course loop. Very good skate deck, the new 1/2 inch of snow covered up almost all of the exposed dirt. Some oak leaves here and there, but only a nuisance.

Skied the orange trail at 3PM and I was the third skater since grooming. Very nice base, snow is a bit crunchy but just fine. One or two spots with some dirt or debris coming through but easily avoided.

Skied the golf course trails only. Everything was in excellent condition. Looks like it was groomed earlier in the day. No bare spots. A bit of tree debris in various spots but nothing major. Overall excellent condition. Thanks to the grooming team!

Skied most of the trails around mid-afternoon, just before the high school meet started up. Really nice conditions over most of the trail system, with just some scattered thin spots, mostly in the "expert" sections by the ski center. Grooming was quite recent and had a wide skate deck along with double classic tracks in many segments. Be aware that most of the trails are two-way (or people might not know about the one-way sections), some map posts have summer maps, and the winter trail layout doesn't exactly match with published map. Really a nice ski, especially on the golf course sections.

Trails were tracked and groomed. Skate deck looked great and was firm for the sections I was on it. Tracks were set nicely and overall classic skiing was good. I only skied the golf course side so not sure if tracks were set on the park/campground side. Only downside was the amount of oak leaves already in the tracks. Amazing how quickly that happens.

All trails at Bunker had been rolled. Conditions were soft, but good. Snow coverage was good on all trails and the golf course side was a bit more skied in. Nothing had been groomed yet and tracks hadn't been set. Should be really nice once the groomer gets out and tracks are set.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We groomed at Bunker Hills Park, Golf Course and Skijor today. The skate decks should be in good condition throughout with occasional thin spots in the park and skijor. Classic track will remain in overall good to fair condition with some thin spots throughout.
