  There is a crusty corduroy track on the manmade loops and hill. Faint icy classical track to the west, on the east it looked as though it'd been set but was icy as well. The short climb had corduroy up to the first hill but nothing after. The long climb had been groomed, went down the big hill with no problem but it's totally iced and not much fun, there's bare ice at the bottom. Park webpage says all trails but manmade loop are closed. Actually pretty good skating on a very fast track but quite a let down from earlier this week.

  Skied at 8:00 AM before warm up and the trail was in excellent condition for both striding and skating. Must have been groomed earlier as the race last night would have worn out the track. So Elver can sometimes be a pleasant surprise and I thank whoever groomed the trail! Let's hope it survives the next two days.

  Full coverage with very little debris. Skate deck was a bit soft which is attributed to the dry/fluffy snowfall. Surprisingly low number hiker tracks on the trails. Nice to be skiing in Madison!

  Skied at Elver each of the last 3 nights. Astoundingly good coverage considering paltry snow total: there were just a couple places I could see a tiny bit of grass poking through and these were extremely easy to avoid. Skied manmade and west trails (no track on west trails). East trails roped off this week, but might be ready after Thursday night snowfall. Lots of eager Madisonians out on trail this week! Finally no need to travel over the weekend to find good conditions.
