Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed ]
  Highland-9 is closed due to tree work. Unfortunately 140 trees had to be removed before this big thaw, and as a result the trail is closed. There are tracks, rutts and debris everywhere, but even without this the trail would be closed in a day or two thanks to the 40+ degree temps. We will post an update if we are able to groom the trail again with fresh snow and cold temps. Currently it is unsafe and unwise to try skiing at Highland, please go elsewhere.

Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  Tree work has begun on the Highland 9 Golf Course. Unfortunately this had to happen at some point this winter before the ground thawed. There is a lot of debris on the trail currently and we wouldn't recommend trying to ski it. With the big thaw this week it may be a moot point, but as soon as we're able to get the trails in skiable condition we will, and we will post right away. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Firsthand Observation 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Early morning Saturday conditions were excellent. Trail had been groomed recently with only a couple spots with very minor grass showing. The trail has been moved a bit so conditions on the left side of the trail are a bit soft. The ground is marked for the upcoming deforesting so get out there now to ensure great conditions.

Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Highland was tracked and groomed as we skied this morning. Foxy and I skijored; Kevin classiced. I like the way the groomers set track even when they occasionally bottom out. New snow and wind blow snow into the track in some places; in other places skiers set a new track. Shallow tracks are better than none.

Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Trail had been groomed but classic tracks not set. The skier-made tracks varied considerably from clearly defined to essentially nonexistent. Much of the snow was smooth, but with some icy spots and a few slushy spots. Poles frequently went down to ice. Definitely nice to be back on the trail, but a few more inches sure would be nice.
