  Took a chance. Only one other person was there and she was leaving but satisfied that she had a (last) chance to ski. The "glacier" and the top of the green leading to it and the section leading to the glacier was skiable though the footing was tricky in spots because you'd sink about 4 inches deeper than the tracks. The section in front of the parking lot was melted to grass. I really enjoyed the challenge but this is probably my last try! There's golf there too!

  Good surface from the flats off the parking lot up and to the west end of the "glacier" to the edge. No snow on the hills. Didn't go/walk to the north side (seemed to have enough snow) but maybe tomorrow. Would have to walk up the hill on grass. Rare steps that sunk a few inches instead of gliding on the surface. Skied from 1:30-2:45 - very glad I did it.

  Fantastic crust skiing on Como Golf Course this morning. I was there from 8:40-9am and conditions were perfect. It looks like tomorrow might be a repeat if it gets cold enough. The forecast is calling for a low of 32F, so there's a decent chance. Just watch out for the occasional branch left from the ash removal.

  We have closed our courses for the season now. Thank you for your understanding as we worked around tree removal this winter. See you in the fall!

  If you're not ready to call it a season yet (or have new gear to try from year-end sales), crust skiing at Como was pretty good. I stayed away from the Golf Course and went to the nearby park green spaces and fields, parking at the picnic area (west of Lexington and north of Como Ave.). As long as you stay away from people's tracks and places where the sun has melted down to grass or ice, it's great fun to be able to ski anywhere, not bound by trails or lines. I went before the temps got above freezing and there was a nice firm crust that allowed just enough edge for some fast and fun skating. You can even race the cars going by on Como and Lexington! Attached are a few photos of conditions and a GPS Tracking map showing my aimless wandering of about 11K.
