Nearly perfect for classic. When we started at 2 p.m. classic tracks had only been partially set, but the groomer caught up with us while we were on our first round. We did the entire perimeter, including South America and the doughnut. Grip tape gave me a near perfect combination of kick and glide, but my partner had a little trouble with his kick on his skin skis. I had been planning to switch to skate for the second round, but decided that when the classic is that good you'd better take advantage of it! I did finally switch to skate for a short loop at the end and found it just a tad soft and slow going, though still very good.

Groomed this morning. Classic tracks deep and fast. Not much traffic today so everything should set up well tonight. Skating lanes we wide and freshly groomed. Great conditions.

Disappointing that there was no grooming at Wm O’Brien today. Tracks were skied in but anyone skating was a slog. Full coverage and such a beautiful day out there!

Got out there 9am, trails had not been rolled or groomed. In some parts you could still feel some of the crust underneath. The Park got about 3-4 inches, so a nice covering on the trails.

Argh! The groomed surface was frozen into rutted ice. I skied everything but South America and it was not fun. There was a small section of heartbreak hill that the groomer hadn't touched and it was great. Big bummers. It's such a thin base that I don't know if they can break it up to fix it. I wouldn't recommend skiing at WOB until we get more snow.

Surprised to find Wetland trail still very skiable. Classic tracks were in good shape. Skate deck was mostly very good, but there were a few spots that were worn and needed more snow. Usually able to avoid, just be aware. Note: did not ski area beyond tunnel.

My third time this month. Skied all outer loops classic track very good considering limited snow fall. Bad spots easily voided, skate lane good as well. Groomer done great job. Another great day on skis Optigrip kicked well.

We skied as it got dark. The trails have deteriorated some this week but are certainly skiable. I had to step out of the classic tracks several time due to bare spots. The skate deck was firm and it was fast out there. B skis this weekend.

Generally good conditions throughout. Still some corduroy left on the edges at 11:30, so must have been groomed recently. Skate deck was solid throughout. Didn’t classic, but looked to be good tracks for 80-90% of the outer loop. Some debris starting to poke through, so B or rock skis. Really no walker damage - signage is great and seems to be enforced somehow!
