Firsthand: Classic

Classic skied the brown trail a few times around mid day. Tracks were in great shape all the way thru. Still really cold so it was a bit slow going but a couple of sunny spots were starting to speed things up just a bit toward the end of my ski time.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
I groomed and set track on all trails late night. Conditions are very good to excellent. Note: there is a half mile section on the purple (near the marsh) that the classic lane is extremely soft, a quarter mile of it has no classic tracks. Please be patient while we work on widening and compacting the classic lane in this area.

Great skiing today at Greenbush. A half inch of new snow. No new grooming but none needed! Incredible how the volunteers and groomers made this possible! All trails were clear and beautiful. The classic track looked great too!

Very nice ski at Greenbush today. The trails are a bit soft but pretty clear of any debris. Just a small stick here and there. The classic track looked good. The groomer was out while I was skiing. They have done a tremendous job. I would like to say hats off to them but it was too cold to take my hat off today.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Our trails suffered some vandalism overnight. A snowmobiler tore up about a 1 mile section from the upper parking lot to the south. I was able to repair it at noon, we're sorry for any early morning skiing inconvenience. The rest of the system is skiing nicely!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Widened, leveled, smoothed and set track on all loops (including the classic only Black trail) today. We focused on widening the entire system, the edges are somewhat soft yet but we are gaining a lot of ground. Mother Nature hit us pretty hard with last week's storm, but this grooming team rose to the challenge. We are very close to having the excellent ski conditions that Greenbush is known for! On a side note, our single track bike trails are now groomed for fat tire biking, Come on out and enjoy!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We were finally able to tame the storm. All trails except black have been groomed with tracks set. Black has been rolled but needs to setup before setting tracks. The groomed surface is still inconsistent in density and has some unevenness in areas. The majority of debris has been cleared.

Greenbush never disappoints. Red and brown trails are tracked and in great condition. Skate deck is firming up a bit. The rest are being worked on. Lots of snow to move and groom. Thank you to the amazing groomers!

We have been notified by the WDNR that the lower parking lot will not be plowed until Saturday morning at the earliest. We currently have 10-12 on the ground and accumulating at over an inch an hour. We will update when we have more to share.

Drove an hour and a half to ski after reading a report that classic trails would be set. Unfortunately there were no tracks to speak of, which was understandable after seeing the base and yellow spots from bottom melting. On a positive note, skaters seemed to be enjoying the conditions and the forest was absolutely beautiful.
