Conditions: Still lots of snow on the tubing hill!
We classic skied and sledded on the tubing hill this afternoon. There are some bare spots towards the bottom, but overall it's still got quite a bit of corn snow!

Conditions: 36F at 11AM, 41F at 12:30PM. The early morning hoar bite gave way to silky smooth skating in the warm sunshine. It got slower and a little punchy after noon.
I drove up the Gratiot Lake road to Mt. Horace Greeley and skied the power line to the summit of Praiseville Hill and back.

Conditions: 21F at 8AM, 34F at 10:30AM. 0-1" of loose granular snow over solid base of frozen corn snow. Cold frost snow crystals made the skis a little grabby early on.
Keweenaw crust skiing in full swing this morning. I skied from Delaware up to the summit of Gratiot Mt. and down, and then tried to ski over to Mt. Horace Greeley but that trail ended in a beaver flooding guarded by a pair of geese.

Several inches of new snow allowed another opportunity to ski. No grooming, of course, but a skied-in track was nice. Old (1972) Rex purple provided good kick.

Lac La BelleKen Wikgren
 
Conditions: 28F at 8AM, 34F at noon. 1-2" fresh powder over 0-18" base of semi-frozen corn snow, a bit punchy in places. >24" of snow on protected North slopes with breakable crust off trail by noon. A few washouts to deal with.
I managed to ski a nice 4 hour loop, including up and down Mt. Bohemia and Mt. Houghton this morning. Over 265" of snow this season.

Conditions: The end is near.
Beautiful fresh cord on the skate lanes this morning, but last night's grooming will likely be the last of the season. Still full coverage on all trails, but several thin spots and rocks starting to show. As usual, the last good place to ski in Ontario, but this year's May Day ski will be sketchy at best.
