Afternoon
Observation 
Looked around and talked to a gentleman who was just finishing. Nobody else out on the trails judging by no cars in the parking lot. Ungroomed since the last snow and slush, ice in low areas. He said what's left of the classic tracks are icy.

Trails were surprisingly good. I skied the outer loop, and there were only a few problem areas. The trails were slightly slushy, but it looks like groomers made new tracks recently to help avoid puddles.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
The warm and sun is quickly taking its toll as Spring bears down on us. Skate deck was groomed and better than I thought it would be. Inner loop is in better condition than the outer loop but both are still skiable with minimal ground showing through. Mainly some melting ice/puddles that need to be skied around on the outer loop. Without some snow we could be nearing the end. Enjoy the last few days of the season here and thanks to everyone that purchased passes to support the grooming efforts.

Beautiful morning ski at the U. Skate deck was firm and fast. Thanks to the groomers. About 12 cars in the lot at 10am when I finished.

Skied full trail classic then full skate 10:30am. Fantastic coverage, no problem spots. Classic tracks are shallow and washed out, but good base, fast and good kick, loved it. Skate deck looked like it was groomed this morning, very nice, but softening up as temps rose a lot and in the sun. Groomers - you rock!

Trails were groomed beautifully, with no ice or bare spots. The trails were not super packed, so skating was slow but fun. Classic tracks seemed perfect.

Nice classic tracks on Les Bolstad! If I had to nitpick anything, there were a couple of turns in which the tracks were a bit thin. But it was a sunny day and hardly any wind on a pristine course in my backyard, I cannot complain! Thanks to the groomers!

Thanks for the grooming! Classic outer trail in good shape. Light snow was falling when I started and that helped make the trail smooth and fast.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skate deck was groomed again late tonight. Between skiing and grooming it should firm up for tomorrow. Grooming plans: We will mix in any new snow tomorrow night. We will groom often to finish the season strong. Love seeing you all out there skiing.

Skied the outer loop. Two days ago was an ice rink, yesterday the new snow was groomed but then wind had built up deep dunes. Today both skate and classic were perfectly groomed. Skate was a bit slow, could probably use another day of grooming to hard pack this new snow a bit more, but all the ice was gone. Should be perfect conditions for the next few days!
