  I skated Onion River Road trail - soggy and slow after the snowfalls of last night and the day before - while my friend did classic on no wax skis and was very happy with the skied in track. Not groomed since those two snowfalls and there's a lot of snow on the trail that should provide good skiing for awhile. Without grooming, classic is the way to go.

  Classic skied Homestead and Hogback loops. The tracks were icy and worn but manageable with fish scale skis. Very few bare spots. The skate deck was firm, coverage excellent and recently groomed.

  Skied from Oberg around Picnic, Hogback and Homestead loops. Fresh grooming after Friday's 3 inches of wet snow on top of a icy base made for a great ski. Temps just below freezing kept snow from transforming but it was still slow. Coverage was excellent over 95% of the trail. A few water bars and one bare patch were the only problem areas. Groomers did a great job as they have all season with a excellent base but multiple thaws and rain events. It was a great year on the North Shore and it should last a while longer.

  The skiing is still going strong on the norwegian riviera. They had just groomed the picnic loop. It looks like there is about a foot of base snow depth still. The skate deck was firm and fast with 2 inches of new course granular snow. No wax classic skis or klister is a good bet this time of the year for classic skiing.

  I found the Onion River skate deck perfectly groomed this morning and the groomer had spent many hours (by another skier's report) breaking up the ice and setting two very nice classic tracks. The Tofte weather report shows below freezing nights and warm days in the near future so there's every reason to expect good skiing lasting for awhile. Tree litter is still there in patches so it's a skier's choice: pick through the litter on your A skis or bring the B ski.
