All trails are groomed. A few short sections of shallow tracks but mostly good. Considering all the use the trail has been getting and the gusty weather a few days ago, the tracks are holding up well. Snow is nice and not too icy.

Skied all of the blue trails. The trails are not in great condition, so much pole holes and deer tracks that it disrupts the groomed ski tracks. A few chunky ice patches and a lot of not smooth areas that catch skis. The green loops/trails were especially chunky and highly used.

Freshly groomed trails had nice tracks. It was fairly busy when I arrived around 4pm but the mostly double tracked trails make passing easy. I didn't see much if any debris on the trails. Went the whole trail. Black hills were great!

The trails were groomed early on Friday. Perfect on Friday and the same today. A light coating of fluffy snow. Very fast. Tracks are firm throughout. I'll be going again tomorrow.

I swung by Piedmont to see if it had been groomed. It has and looks perfect. There were no cars in the lot at 8:15. Looks like a great day of skiing.

We classic skied Piedmont today and it has been very well used in the past 24 hours since it was groomed. The tracks were fast, not icy, just not squeaky snow anymore and they are shallow, maybe an inch or two at most deep. Some of the corners are already becoming a bit disfigured. The tracks are 99.99% debris free. The "in between" areas where you transition from one track to another have already become slippery concrete from the use. If you take "The Plunge" to the end, there is a big hole next to the tracks on the skate deck portion about half way down, just before some random rabbit parts. Pole plants are firm in the classic only areas and soft on the right side of the right tracks in the small skate/classic loop.

First time skiing at this venue and it was great. Well thought out trail system with good flow, especially on the double track classic trails. Perfect sunset colors. Conditions just about perfect except a bit soft for the pole plants so use large baskets!

Remarkably nice conditions despite high winds after yesterday's groom. About 95% intact tracks and corduroy. B skis due to high wind twig debris. Thank you groomers!

Great classic skiing if you have a hardy pal like Tyler Henkels to endure with! Minimal drifting and classic tracks are skiing fantastic. Some branches hanging down and on course otherwise perfect conditions.
