  Got out around 9am this morning and Dave had already groomed most of the skate lanes which I was thankful for. Overnight temps dropped below freezing and the deck was hard, rutted and unforgivingly fast in ungroomed sections. But where combed, it was fast but stable. Incredible, skied on good skis. There is plenty of snow not even close to ground showing, and overnite temps leading to the weekend will provide great skiing early, 8am until 10 to 10:30am and Dave said he will KEEP ON GROOMING! Tracks were good enough to provide roller coaster thrills on hills.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Skate lanes remain in good shape with solid pole plants and good edge. Groomer will Ginzu skate lanes in a.m., after temps getting into 20's overnight. Some drizzle last night, but little effect on trails as we have a 6-8" base. Mostly advanced skiers out today from out of town looking for the last snow. Tomorrow morning skating should be very good. I was able to reset classic tracks on A, B, D/W. Skin and no-wax classic working. Come on out for some great Spring skiing tomorrow, weatherman promises full sun and drier air.

  Good snow coverage with some wind debris on trails. Groomer did a great job of scratching top layer so skis could get a good edge. Only a few other skiers out including groomers from other ski areas (finally getting a chance to ski after the end of their season). Skating far better than classic where tracks looked icy.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We arrived 9:30 am to find fresh snow, all trials freshly groomed, and Dan the grooming man was opening the ski lodge. Dan fired up the wood stove and gave us a first hand report on the trials he had just groomed. The two loops we skied were as promised, perfect! This little slice of heaven in the UP has changed my perception of winter. It has always been our favorite destination to ski and when there is homemade soup available it is icing on the cake! Thanks for a great year!

  Dan the groomer did another fantastic job of grooming the trails. Still a 20" base with new snow worked in. All trails groomed for freestyle and tracks set for classical. Excellent ski conditions for an almost spring day.
