Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
Great skiing today at Wolverine. Of course, with just a few inches of snow, conditions require rock skis. The trails appear to have been rolled and combed twice in the last few days. Packing down the dusting from last night made a surprising improvement. With such a slim base, there are quite a few lumps in the trail, but it is fun and skiable. There's no telling how the trails will survive the unfavorable forecast, but I imagine the skiing Wednesday will be good.

Skied all except Cliff Hanger. Most of the Wolverine Loop is freshly groomed, the rest had 1-2 inches of recent snow. A very few protruding rocks could be easily avoided. Bumpy in some spots; more snow needed to smooth the trails. Thanks Wolverine volunteers for the gift of skiing!

2" new snow covered trails and bare spots this morning. Still, rocks under snow. Grooming plans: Groomers will go out as soon as conditions allow. Still not enough to set a good track.

I skate skied the Novice loop and Cliff trail after work. The Novice Loop is in poor condition with rocks and dirt and debris showing through in many places. It was bumpy and easy to catch your ski on a rock or dirt. I then tried Cliff Trail (not Cliffhanger, that would be crazy with the low snow and big hills). Cliff Trail also had rocks,dirt and debris showing through, I was able to skate ski back and forth and pick my way around most, but did catch my ski on dirt, rock several times. There were a few good very short stretches but it is sketchy. Unfortunately, right now until we get more snow, I would not recommend skiing the trails. I want to be honest about conditions.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Trails are looking good for the amount of snow that we have. The trails were rolled after the first big snow. No tracks set until we receive more snow. Novice trail seems to be in the best condition. At the bottom of Sulo's hill on the Wolverine Trail (SW) there's a rough spot, take it slow. Warm chalet open.
