Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Classic on just the inside loops [knee re-hab in progress] and not the middle or outer loop. Some grass and infrequent root but overall very nice conditions given the limited snow to work with. Used waxless fish scale rock skis and probably the right choice. Thanks Greg H for making the most of the trails. Some skate areas looked quite nice but some thin areas too. Don't forget to donate please.

[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Just groomed this morning. All trails are groomed and tracked. We have large rocks through-out the system. On occasion leaves were brought up. Worth while getting out to ski. Suggesting rock skis.

Skated under the lights. Trails have been rolled but are soft and rough. No classic track have been set, except for what others have skied in.
