Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
  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.

  Skied in the afternoon both Saturday and Sunday. Some of the best snow of the year. Pretty fast, but not really cooking much when the sun hits which is a good thing. Must be because the air is drier. It must have been groomed today later morning because I noticed the trail was more even yesterday as compared to today. Tracks set on almost all of the trails (there was one spot I noticed on the north side there wasn't a track set, but maybe that was on an uphill). Note: one icy spot where the connector trail ends and the south/north loop begins, everything else great coverage.

  I skated all the trails except the new little loop at the beginning. Good coverage on all trails with the groomer just leaving as I started. A few classic skiers skiing right up the middle of the skate lane thankfully did not leave big ruts. The snow was a bit slow but the sunny day and new snow made it a beautiful day. Get out and enjoy!
