Excellent conditions at Pioneer Creek. All skate decks were gone over and are extremely nice at this time. The first half mile of tracks had been cut and reset, all other tracks were left alone and are in very good condition! Very nice temperatures to get out and enjoy.

The beginning of the trail is beat up from walkers but after the first quarter mile it turned out great. We skied the classic trail with some newbies. It was a bit too fast for them but I enjoyed the speed. Grooming on the later trails was great.

Grooming

This was a new one, a vehicle drove on the ski trail for close to 2 miles! I have cut the tracks out and packed the best that I could. The whole system has been groomed and a beautiful track set along a very nice and level slake deck! Excellent conditions with temperatures dropping to really firm things up.

Skied the trails and thought they were okay, a bit icy. The trails could use better signage. Our group got lost at one point and eventually made it back.

Trails were icy. Needs to be groomed or a fresh snowfall. It was hard to make the turns that were at the bottom of the hills.

Classic track in good shape, albeit a bit icy in spots making for a few faster downhills. Skate deck was average, heavily trafficked with hikers and paw prints.

Great conditions! Very good grooming. Classic track was firm and level, as was skate deck. Very little debris that hinders glide. Lots of needles, but they did not grab the ski.

Observation

I spent the morning packing removing as much debris as I could. Grooming plans: I'll be out tomorrow morning grooming and setting a track. The only negative is all the tree debris on most of the system.

All of Pioneer Creek has been rolled. Plenty of low hanging trees and branches to deal with at this time. Planning to groom on Wednesday morning.
