Double track recently groomed and trail in very good shape. Nice glide and the skins performed well in the warmer conditions. Winter Wonderland w the fresh snow on the trees. No debris or footprints and great coverage. Hope the snow holds up with a warmth stretch.

Ski track still in good shape except sections that were trampled by hikers. Oak leaves starting to fill track but not much of a problem.

Great day on the trails. The trail is in good shape with little damage from hikers. There was some leaf and branch debris, but not too bad. Fresh flurries overnight made for nice tracks!

Freshly groomed and good coverage throughout. Wooded trails helped with the strong wind. Groomers got up early - thank you!

Icy tracks. Pretty rigid tracks. On my waxless skis I found it easier to ski outside the tracks to get kick. Snow is icy but soft next to trail. Plenty of speed despite leaves and some avoidable sticks. Some loss of control on hills so mostly did easy loop.

Freshly groomed so a bit soft, but the the scenery more than made up for it. Lots of skiers out and track should set up good today. Great start to 2020!

Busy day on the trails, with tracks holding up quite well. Some hiking traffic and oak leaves, but overall really nice. Happy New Year!

Freshly groomed classic tracks set today. Firm, a bit of ice but overall very nice. Oak leaves not yet filling the tracks. Beautiful day in the woods!

Lots of oak leaves! Exposed asphalt in northeast corner of the outer trail and on the downhill segment through the prairie area. Trails in woodlands with less sun exposure were better.
