  No grooming done. Plenty of snow. Strictly backcountry but I laid down a rough classic track making a loop out from the main parking area. Had the place all to myself. Snow texture was varied but about mid-day some sun-soaked, low spots were getting pretty sticky but all in a all a great workout and a beautiful day!

  Joanie and I arrived at the trailhead at 7 am after a very early morning drive from Madison. We skied the 12K blue loop and 5K green loop at this great classic-only gem. The trails had just been groomed the day before, so they were in excellent condition after several inches of fresh snowfall earlier in the week. The track was just a bit fast, but made for a fun ski. Thanks for the great grooming-well worth the drive!

  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.
