Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Groomed all loops and set new track. Still some dirt patches in a few places. Track is pretty good, but a little shallow in spots. We got about 3/4" of snow last night. It wasn't quite enough to cover everything up.

Touched up the skate track today. Knocked down most of the crown on the center of the trail, so it is looking quite flat. Still 3 or 4 small sections with a little dirt, but easily avoidable.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Track well set and icy fast. Skate lane, too, is fast. It has not been recently groomed so there is still some ungroomed snow on the sides to get a good edge. Some sticks to flick off. Enjoyable skiing.

Just finished grooming and setting track. There are a few spots where dirt and leaves got pulled up they are easily seen and avoided. Decent track all around.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Just got done skiing. The trail is in decent shape considering the light snow cover. The last bit of snow really helped, The trail is relatively flat, most of the dips and holes are filled in. There is some dirt and other debris that's been pulled up by the groomer. The track is good. There are just a few spots where the tracker bottomed out and there is a little dirt or grass showing. They are easily avoided.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Got out this morning to set track after dragging trail on Wednesday. Most of the trail looks really good. A few sections where the deer are feeding on acorns, or areas in the pines that see less snow have some leaves and dirt showing. The track is usable, but not great. We need more snow!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Groomed all loops. Set track on about 90% of the trail. Track is mostly good some areas where the tracker pulled up leaves or exposed a bit of dirt. The trail is still a bit rough not enough snow to flatten it completely. The deer have been digging up acorns on one stretch which pulled up a lot of oak leaves. There are also a couple of eroded spots on uphills that need a bit more snow. Definitely rock skis.

Grooming

Rolled all the loops this morning. There was one skier out. The cover is very thin. Maybe less han an inch in some places. Lots of leaves and dirt spots. The forecast calls for more snow, will update after any new snow gets rolled.
