  Fun spring classic ski at the golf course. It hasn't been groomed but there was definitely enough cover. Looked like about a dozen folks had been out before me. Might even be skatable - looked like most folks had classic skied though since it wasn't groomed.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Columbia is in rough shape. While grooming today there was about an inch of loose unconsolidated snow on top of very bumpy and hard ice, which made "grooming" a definite challenge. Made several passes on the small loop just east of the train bridge and even then had to make several course corrections to stay on snow. Snow is very thin and you might run into sections of grass. No classic tracks Set. Less than 1/2 km open.

  Nice classic ski tonight at 6:30 pm thanks to some nice work by the groomers. Was really grateful to see how good of a job they did. There was some grass exposed on the high spots but in general the track was some of the best I've used around the metro this season. Skate deck looked nice as well. In general the conditions were pretty fast, just a few twigs. Thanks groomers!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
  Partially groomed Columbia before work this morning. The small loop near the clubhouse on Central is in good condition with a shallow track set. The trail just west of the bridge over the tracks has some rocks showing. I set some new tracks on the West side trails, but they are in mixed conditions because the snow has blown and drifted and left some bare areas.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
  The lesson area has been groomed for classic lessons. The front loop has been groomed wide for skate only. The back (larger loop) across the tracks has been groomed for skate only. Most portions of the trail groomed. Multiple areas are wind blown and down to ice or very crusty snow and this makes it difficult to follow the designated trail. There are areas with better snow and they are closer to the railroad tracks, the trail is worse as you get closer to the range. No classic set at this time due to low snow conditions for much of the trail. Rock ski designation because of exposed gravel on the west side of the bridge,.
