[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  On Thursday we skied much of the trail system not skied on Wednesday and report that the hill coming down to Isaac Lake on Finland is dangerous. Use caution. Also noted that the "cancer" spots were developing and/or enlarging. This morning, we found the conditions deteriorating in spots but still some decent skiing to be had. At the end of our ski (11:30) the snow was becoming wet and slower. B skis if you keep alert. The entrance to the trails from the parking lot is dicey, but ok once entering the woods.

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Being a life-long pessimist and skeptical scientist, I met a friend at the trailhead this afternoon expecting to immediately head home. What a pleasant surprise! Despite the paucity of snowfall here the trails were open and groomed. Maybe 1-2" of a firm, crusted base with 1/2 inch of powder over top - enough for fresh corduroy. A thinner and/or bare spots but nothing to worry about. B skis recommended due to the occasional stealthy stone, sneaky sand patch, or threatening buried twig. No classical tracks. All-in-all very skiable, and overall good skating. We skied most of the main trail and the shortcuts, preferring to leave other sections to firm up for tomorrows skiing.
