All regroomed, no leaves, no ice, fantastic tracks. The groomer was out and about while I classic skied midday. The conditions were top notch. My thanks to groomers.

The groomers were just finishing up by the visitors center. Talked to skiers who reported the entire system groomed. No time to ski right now but would if I could. Back tomorrow.

Bill skied very slow for skating today, it was my slowest ski I have had at Bill all year. The groomer was making multiple passes to get the trail ready for tomorrow’s race. The trail should firm up tonight if we get the predicted low temperatures. Tomorrow’s race should be the best conditions that the race has had in years. Get out and enjoy this race.

Good news was very little rain yesterday, the great news was two inches of new snow this morning. Grooming was taking place when I got there. Conditions looked great, a bit soft yet but plenty of base. The grooming plans, according to the park, are to do the final grooming for Sunday's race Saturday evening, so any kind of below freezing night should provide great skiing.

The best conditions the park has seen in years! Park staff has been working hard to consolidate new snow from last week. Trails are fully covered and tracks are set. Should be in great shape for the Marine O'Brien race this weekend!

I skied all of William OBrien Sunday afternoon and the trails were in excellent condition. Thanks to Wayne and the grooming staff for doing such a great job! Looking forward to the Marine OBrien race on Sunday.

All the trails had been groomed for skate and classic except the prairie loop for classic but I'm guessing that was tracked later as they were currently grooming the skate lane on that loop. A few leaves here and there but otherwise great conditions.

Skate skied the outer loop Monday evening. The main portion had been groomed. Lots of tree litter on trail by campground and up through the woods. Outer loops: Killer hill, south america and wedge hill are not groomed and a bit slick and rutted.

I took a lap around the outer loop as it got dark out Friday evening. I think the skate lane was recently groomed on everything except the farm loop and South America (last 2 outer loops). The snow coverage is firm and a bit thin and B skis are recommended. There are old classic tracks set on much of the flat parts and none on the hills. Certainly skiable, but temper your expectations.
