  The man made loop is open, so get out there before its gone! Amazingly, it was tracked after Winterfest concluded Sunday night, and the skate deck held up overnight. Conditions are deteriorating, and it's a mix of slush, ice, and dirty snow. Still beats running.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
  Yuriy Gusev (CXC) groomed the Elver Trails this morning with the Piston Bully. Right now conditions are very good for both skating and classic. Start at the warming shelter and go into the woods past the baseball fields rather than starting at the parking lot. This area is too icy to groom. He also groomed the man-made snow area below the sledding hill. Appx 6-7 K groomed trail.

  As of around sunset, skiing in the woods is not recommended. Much of the trail is icy, and the groomed parts I saw didn't hold up well. Ski those at your own risk. However, there is about a mile of pretty well groomed trails that stretches from the sledding hill past the warming hut over to the softball fields. Watch out for a couple of icy parts by the softball field.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Trails are still all open but East and West hills are pretty bad. East has not been groomed. The Piston Bully set a nice loop below and up the sledding hill, past the shelter and around the West baseball diamond where there are a few icy patches. They were even able to set a classical track there. Not the best but it's all we have.
