  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.

  East side (Ridges) trail: Conditions are excellent. Trails faster than yesterday. Green kicker on top of yesterdays' wax worked perfectly. At the end of the ski, we followed a group of Special Olympians getting ready for their winter games next weekend. They were skiing a nice flat ski that was keeping them on trail. Very well done! To quote a US Olympic coach to me: "Train hard and race fast" (Marty Hall, April 82). Good luck.

  East side (Ridges) trail: Skied this morning. Trails are set nicely, have very little debris and have had only light use so far. Straight green wax worked well with the freshly groomed trail. West side (Red Pine) trails: There is logging activity on the far west and far south portions of the ski loops. Avoid those areas. There is a shorter hilly area in the southeast portion of the trails that is being set up for skating. It's right out of the parking lot. The snow is perfect for softer skating skis. Backcounty: We skied fire lanes yesterday. The rain that we received Tuesday sunk to the ground and cemented in the subsequent snow that fell Wednesday night. The woods and dunes now have a great go anywhere snowcover.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  After the rain sleet and high winds earlier this week, we pleasantly received 5 inches of new snow last night. Ridges trail (classic ski) was groomed early this morning and is in good condition. A portion of the red pine trail (skate ski) was packed today with plans to groom on Thursday.
