  I skated the south loop which is ungroomed, 2 inches of loose snow some sticks. Saturday morning should be skiable, enjoy! I also mtb the burnt wagon and horseshoe lake loops between 8:45 and 10:00 am they were groomed and firm.

  Ski trails are not groomed and didn't look to have been groomed since last week's snowfall and this week's for that matter. The fat bike trails are groomed and actually the middle of the ski trail on the connector trail was groomed with the fat bike width roller. The gentleman grooming the fat bike trail was just heading out when I got there. But for skiing, yes it's not that deep where it's not skiable but I personally wouldn't recommend it as I don't like fluff, but also rocks and sticks are covered up and many humps at bottoms of the hills are not covered risking breaking a ski. I skied to almost the north end of the south loop but turned around. Others ventured out further (one classic and one skate). Goodbye to skiing Hickory for the season. It's been fun.

  Skied from about 11am-12:30. It was actually pretty nice. When I first got the the shaded parts of the trail were still crusted over but the parts in the sun were of course soft. Later during my ski it did get a bit softer. I was waxed with Toko yellow and still was able to cruze pretty good. Did Tram and North loop. There are a bare spots as expected but those were rather small. One this that surprised me was some debris on top of the trail that must have fallen in the wind a couple nights ago which is really the only reason I suggest rock skis. I think B skis would be just fine or even good skis for tomorrow I still think it would be skiable but put on your ultra warm weather wax and get out in the morning. I don't think it's a guarantee though. Seems like the north loop has a bit less snow than the south and even tram. 50/50 shot. But was really happy to get out there today.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
  Grooming was called off due to not enough material to work with. The conditions are icy and there are bare spots (not only associated with logged areas!). In the early mornings there may be opportunity for crust skiing off the trail.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed Thursday night. Expect good track and skating. Skiers reported great conditions this week. Should be great today and into weekend.
