Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  In crisp cold weather all, trails are tracked and groomed. I don't count the "bad" Blue Hill trail because that's only open for a short time - it's not yet even packed. We packed on Tuesday after about 6 inches of heavy wet snow, groomed on Wednesday. Looking very nice. New Blue Return is still lumpy and there are sections of the Blue that are that way as well, caused by 4 wheeler traffic in the mud during deer season. Overall we are in good shape.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Another little snow came Thursday night, enough to make grooming fun. We set tracks on Green, Orange, Yellow, and Blue trails, and rolled the Red so that it is skateable. The skate lanes are fairly firm now. The tracks are only fair, but improving each time. There are still a few rocks on ridges but overall our coverage is good.

Firsthand

  Skated 18 KM on fresh groomed trails. There were a few rocks on some ridges. Tracks have been set on part of Trail with some thin spots. Great day to be out on the trails.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  After another couple inches of new snow, We had both the Tidd and Ginzu out along with a shoveler and set tracks on Green, Orange, and Yellow trails on Wednesday evening. While there are a few rocks visible if you look for them, most are completely covered now after shoveling. I skated all the trails and was quite happy with the results. We have yet to get a big snowfall but continue to add a few inches at a time and have a good solid base.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  We groomed for the second time on Monday, rolling followed by Ginzu on Green, Orange, Yellow, and main Blue. The Red (Black Bay Loop) was done Saturday but is pretty rough. Skating only so far - not enough to set tracks. In the open on the flats the trails are quite nice; under cover and on ridges the cover is still thin. But you can skate easily. The New Blue Return Trail has been rolled twice but I would avoid that for now because it is really rocky.
