  Skied Hiram early this morning while trail still icy and firm. Conditions are fair to poor but still can be skied. There are several bare spots now and the track is getting shallow and rough in many areas. Still not too much forest litter in track at this point.

  Skied Hiram early this morning while it was still frozen hard, temp around 10 degrees. The track in most places is still well defined but very icy and very fast. Purple ice klister was working great. On the south facing hills with no tree cover the track is in rough shape. There is still not much forest litter in the track. Between the ski traffic and the deer traffic the trail is getting a bit chewed up but over all it is still good skiing. Just use caution on the steeper downhill runs if you are skiing while its still frozen from the over night re-freeze.

  Skied Hiram today mid morning to just past noon. Conditions are still good overall for March skiing. The track in most places is still deep and well formed with not muck ice yet. The sections that are open to the sun and have a more southern exposure are getting very shallow and icy. You can step out of the track onto the deck which is still not icy if you want to avoid the worst spots. There is some forest litter in the track but most areas are still clean. Get out and enjoy the skiing this weekend if you are able.

  Hiram trail is generally in very good condition. Track is deep and well defined and holding up to the weather and the sun well. A little more leaf debris since wind was up a bit. The trail from parking lot to bench is in the poorest condition with more icy and poorly defined track-more exposed and south and west facing aspect. A great trail, get out and enjoy it before the warm weather.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and set new track at Hiram this morning after all the new snow on Monday. Conditions are very good over all for spring skiing. Some places the track is a little shallow and ragged where the sun had already reduced the depth of the new snow to work with. It is a little soft right now but should firm up over night. There were quite a few sticks and pine cones down on the trail but I tried to pick up ever thing that I could see so you shouldn't have to worry about running over it in the track. Get out and enjoy some good spring skiing while it lasts.
