  I skied from the trail head at about 12pm and completed Bardon's Peak Loop. There had probably been 1-2 skiers before me for Bardon's Peak; the east half of loop had 2 tracks, and the west was untouched. There was one set of tracks going out on the bigger loop that looked like one skier. There were fallen branches buried under the snow in places, however, most were visible and I moved a majority out of the way. Breaking trail was a hoot, enjoy the snow while it lasts! I used my waxless skis and they worked like a charm.

[ Trails Open: Most ]
  Was too tired to ski after the Spirit Trails. Skied here a couple days ago. Magney, unlike Spirit, has had some recently skiers, both skate and classic. Not been groomed for a couple snowfalls, but really has good snow cover. Would recommend classic skinny skis. Can go through the woods, off trail, too, with your classics (no need to use back-country skis). Beautiful snow and skiing in the woods!

  Classic track is skied in but not groomed. Bardon's loop is fine except for the biggest downhill and the hill after it have some bare areas. Just stay to the right and you can make it down both of them. Ely's loop is skiable to the road and back. Some people have skied across the road and done the whole loop, probably doable now with the new snow. Skate lane is pretty thick and slow. Really fun to still be skiing in April.

  There are 2 to 3 inches of new snow. A little much for skating without it being groomed but I made it work. It's gorgeous! The skating classic track is really decent.

  Excellent skiing, except where there's bare ground on the south slopes. Temps were in the mid to high 20's all day. Snow was soft, even under the fresh 1-2 inches from Friday morning. I skied Skyline Parkway between the two trail segments of Ely's Peak loop since Ely's Peak is plowed.
