Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Warm day, wet snow. Silver klister was kicking but with all the moisture in the snow there wasn't much for glide. The classic tracks and skate deck were good. It was a good day to be a nordic skier. The whole hour and a half I was skiing, the chairlift on the Alpine hill was stuck. I kept going around the tracks, and every time I returned to the trail next to the Alpine runs I could see the same people stuck on the chairlift. Ski patrol was rigging up ropes and lowering people down, one at a time. As I left, I noticed about half were still awaiting rescue.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We are back to our normal operations after a very exciting and successful weekend of racing! All 2.5k are groomed and tracked and in great shape for the most part, there are a few patches of ice -- the very far reaches of the upper loops with a little water soaking through. This is outside of our snowmaking reach, and the natural cover is pretty good, but is also insulating the water keeping it from freezing at the moment. I'd still say you can ski with your good skis, just something to keep an eye out for.

Wide, firm corduroy. No classic tracks. All trails were open. I really wish they had laid at least one classic track (I was classic skiing).

Trails were in good condition but limited in length. But can climb and ski the downhill slopes as it was closed by groomed.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
We're unburied and back in business after 24"+ of snow over the weekend! Naturally, we've got beautiful conditions on our open trails with wide, solid skate decks and deep classic tracks. I will be packing the upper loops today and possibly be looking at grooming if there's enough base for the PB 100. If you can get out of your house and need to ski, this is the place to be!

The lower trails are all groomed wide and flat. The surface is even and mostly firm. No classic tracks at all. None of the upper trails are rolled or groomed.

As I arrived at Grand Ave my hopes were elevated. Fresh corduroy covered the stadium and deep fryers scented the air. I skated out of the stadium, following another skiers tracks in the corduroy to find no new trail sections had been groomed. The gerbil loops were still comforting.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
The lower loop is open, with an out and back at the midway point. Skaters could ski corduroy up to the right of the lift, but only the left side was tracked. The deck and tracks were in perfect condition and there were no bare spots. I used my good skis on them and had no worries.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Full groom this morning with a great skate deck, and a slightly variable track set. The warm temps and some rain this past week has been forming a bit of an ice cap beneath the surface that can be difficult to punch through with the tracks, but overall they have decent depth and should hold up. Here's to hoping for some colder temps and some of the natural flakes soon!

Fresh corduroy at 7 am. It was really nice. Not at all icy. Temp was about 34F. The classic tracks were freshly set, too. I didn't use them, figured the sidewalls would be soft, because I wanted them to stay nice for classic skiers.
