The trail has not been groomed in a couple weeks, but we took off from the trailhead in our classic skis and found the skiing to be fun. The underlying base was pretty firm, and the 6" that had fallen a couple days before had melted down to only about 2". The classic skiing on these layers of snow was great until the temperature dropped below freezing, and the top layer became crusty. By that time, we were close enough to the parking lot and simply called it a day.

No further grooming planned to my knowledge. The last grooming was prior to the Spring Loppet on Mar 11. There is still good snow. Some branches, bark debris, and a few bare spots in the sun. Classic tracks look good still overall. Just posting so no one makes a trip expecting something different. Thanks to all the volunteer groomers! It's been a great winter for snow and skiing.

Omigosh what great skiing with four busy little skate skiers buzzing up and down the hills! Classic track were firmly set like luge runs but safe and secure on the straight stretches. Skate lane was a little rough as groomers are saving the snow for final grooming before race on Sunday. But the new snow is soft and the bumpy patches are easily avoided. Should be absolutely glorious skiing on Sunday!
