Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
All of the combined skate/classic loops and cutoffs were groomed and tracked this morning. Conditions range from trashy to sublime but mostly sublime. The worst areas are the pine areas. I would advise skiers using kickwax to avoid the pine areas of the green and purple loops. These areas can be mostly avoided by using the red to green and green to purple cutoffs. The brown and blue are also very good.

No new grooming was done today. The western sections of the green and purple are drifted over again. The pine areas on the green and purple are almost more green than white. There is enough snow for some great skiing this week. Grooming plans: Trails will are scheduled to be groomed and tracked for classic tomorrow morning.

Greenbush has about 4" of new snow in the past 48 hours. I skied the pink, green and red loops. Only the brown loop and the 2-way portion from the lower lot the the upper parking area was groomed. No trees were down but lots of debris from the pines and dead ash trees litter the trails. As part of the grooming team I can report that nearly all of the system was groomed but not tracked for classic early this afternoon. Skiing on the ungroomed trails today was slow but scenic. Grooming plans: We should be able to set track tomorrow or Monday.

Another great ski at Greenbush. The trails had been groomed since I skied Sunday. There was a half an inch of fresh powder on top. A few thin spots to dance around. I hit some rock with a few of my pole plants. There is some classic track set on the trails near the shelter. Definitely worth a trip out there.

Did full purple loop. Some tops of stones exposed down by the marsh and on final climb but overall good conditions. Shoutout to the grooming squad.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
I skied the pink, red, and green loops this afternoon. There is about a half inch of new snow since yesterday which can only help. All of the climbs on the red and green loops are worn down to the gravel. The descents are fine throughout.

Surprisingly good! Some thin spots but no bare spots on the trails I skied. I did a purple, partial brown, blue and the training section. About a half an inch of fresh snow over the groomed trail. Greenbush and the groomers came through again.

I skied the entire purple and portions of the green and red loops. The grooming crew did a remarkable job clearing the fallen trees and all of the loops have been rolled. Definitely rock ski conditions. I used wide touring skis which helped to stay above the dirt and rocks. We now have a firm base with the colder temps. Photos show the best and worst of the trails at present.

We finished clearing and packing all loops at Greenbush today. Met a few skating and classic skiing, they were having a blast! Definitely use your rock skis and please flick off as many twigs as you can! Thanks!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
We were able to roll/compact and clear debris from our more level terrain Thursday afternoon. This includes the Campground Road to the cut off, the Warm up loop and up to the upper parking lot. Rolling resulted in a "firm" albeit thin base with some debris and unevenness. A trace of new light snow overnight. Grooming plans: We will be working on the pink and red loops Friday and possibly the green and purple as conditions allow.
