  The groomers had rolled and packed the trails but no track was set which allowed me to skate the trails. Unfortunately, skate conditions were fair at best. The trails are just a little too narrow for skating but I did manage to skate the entire trail system. Be aware that the trail from the campground down to the group camp area is void of snow so walk down that section. I switched to classic skis for my second lap around and the experience was much much better. Conditions were fair to good considering there was no track set. Conditions for classic skiing were definitely better than they were for skating.

  Icy, rocket fast, hardpack with scratched up surface from regrooming after the meltdownj/refreeze. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Campground was best and our little group ended up going around and around the 2K of trail there. Madison's one week ski season is now officially over but we should all be resting anyway for that little race next weekend.

  Forget it for classic skiing. However, definitely worth your while for skating so long as you are careful. The second time around was better than the first as I knew what to expect. The entire system is skiable other than Pleasant Valley. Go around the ice flow by turning left, going up the hill and then turn right at the top of the hill and go down to connect with the Flint Rock trail. I recommend you walk down the big hill to the campground because of bare ground.

  Extreme skate skiing. Fresh corduroy on top of ice base. Thanks groomers. Downhills need extreme caution but skiable. Ice patch on Willow Springs; Need to hike around in woods 100 feet.

  Skied part of Flint Rock to Willow Run. Good try by the groomers this morning but those trails were ground and icy not really worth the effort. The base was too shallow to set tracks. Campground could be a decent skate surface. A huge patch of solid ice is still on Flint Rock just before Willow Run. Skis needed to be removed and walked past with care. The trails are ready for new snow.
