Afternoon
Firsthand: Freestyle

The afternoon window led to great skiing at Greenbush. It’s a little slick and hard to edge at the beginning where the trails overlap but once you get out on the green and purple it was great. Worth the trip if you can get out in the soft but not too warm window. There is a fair bit of pine debris and classic tracks are minimal.

Firsthand: Classic Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
All trails open, no tracks set. Most of the system has been scratched up over the last couple days. Conditions are getting quite icy. Certainly not worth a 50 mile drive; maybe 20 if you like ice. I classic skied the Red and it was okay, but I like fast.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trail segments are in good condition. Mark grounded it up the last couple days resulting in very good skiing, better for skating. Some debris remains but awfully good skiing experience. The groomers will be out there every morning over the next few days. Please join the ski club to support these efforts.

I was lucky to arrive this morning to freshly groomed purple, red and brown trails. Just the skate deck was groomed. Pretty good conditions overall, with complete coverage. There were just a couple of small icy spots. Some debris on the trails but nothing horrible. For the most part the skate deck was solid with a little fresh corduroy over the top. In a couple areas the snow was soft. The classic track was not touched by the groomer. It was well worth the trip out there.

Very nice! Skate lanes were fast, firm and fun! The high winds blew some debris down onto the trail in the afternoon, but it was fairly easy to ski around.

Grooming

The Vincent van Gogh of trail grooming did it again. All trails groomed and in excellent condition, thanks Jeff. I broke the track setter on The Black Trail, but still very skiable. You have to feel sorry for all those Birkie skiers who are fleeing our beautiful Greenbush trails to do the choreographed death march with 11,000 other skiers.

The green and pink trails were top notch yesterday. A little debris from the wind, but all in all a great day to be out.

We skated all the trails this morning and they were awesome. We were treated to freshly groomed skating trails when we arrived shortly after 7 am.
