  Excellent conditions, lots of skiers. Nice to see so many people out on a gorgeous day. The Underdown has always been one of my favorites due to the challenging terrain, and diversity of the forest itself. High open hardwoods, dark cedar and hemlock lowlands, even popple slash and bog swamps all make for the miles to pass by quickly.

  Skied the green loop with a group of people. It was snowing at the time and the trails were soft and beautiful. There is no prettier place to ski than Underdown. You could still see the tracks from the last grooming. Lovely ski. I especially like that there are "go around" places for the hills. That made it easy for people in my party to choose whether to ski down the hill or not. I will be back.

  A word of caution regarding the Underdown trails. A heavy melt followed by an overnight freeze turns the next day's conditions extremely dangerous. The tracks turn into mini luge runs and any snow outside the tracks freeze over making even any type of snowplow useless. The downhills are a pretty much out of control situation. Uphills are more than difficult with the hard crusts preventing a decent herringbone and the tracks are too icy to allow a kick was to work well. Best to wait for the next snowfall and a re-groom. Underdown is just too remote to risk a backcountry injury.

  At 10am, the trails had not ben re-groomed from yesterdays thaw and last nights freeze. I spoke with someone in the parking lot that had just completed the green loop, and he said it was very icy and treacherous, so I did not ski.

  First time at the Underdown, and it won't be the last, just an awesome set of trails!! Decent depth on the tracks, nice pole plant. Course seemed to nicely survive the warmup, hopefully snow on the way! Skied in 35 degree, windless conditions. Doubled tracked throughout. Carpe Skiem.
