  A half-inch dusting overnight helped a little, but still no classical tracks set. I don't have back-country skis so stayed this morning on the uncleared, paved roads that wind through the campground. The one nearest the main road that runs N-S in the Park had a single vehicle's compressed, wide, tire tracks to ski in. Actually not bad, but I live relatively close, don't need perfect conditions, and wanted to get outdoors in the sun. Looks like late this evening and very early tomorrow morning will be my last skiing on this latest snow. Definitely B-ski conditions, but fun and invigorating.

  Had 5" of somewhat-wet snow yesterday after a big melt earlier in the week. No classical tracks set. Snow was sticky in sunny areas and melting was occurring where sun could reach dark areas under snow. I skied anyway and got in a good workout. Trail conditions will further deteriorate as temps rise, but I plan to try again early in the morning (because we're running out of winter).

  We had 3" of dense wet snow followed by 2" of overnight powder. Conditions are good for light touring to touring skiing anywhere in the forest that has snow cover. Best snow conditions will be after 3 pm today or tomorrow morning before the sun gets too high. Otherwise you'll be dealing with clumping due to uneven snow temps from shade to sun. Avoid the far west side of the red pine trail due to a heavily rutted and puddled road.

  Backcountry only report: Yesterdays' melting and last nights freezing temperatures yielded the seasons first corn snow. Plenty of snow coverage in the woods allowed for some nice skiing on the fire lanes and deer trails. The snow should last through the weekend. We are skiing on short (179-189) metal edged no wax back country skis. A couple of ski shops in northern Wisconsin carry them. They easily double our ski season outings during these unpredictable winters.

  Great conditions on Ridges trail. Skied all three loops red, blue, yellow. Took about two hours, awesome workout. Only saw one other skier at the end.
