[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Whitefish Dunes State Park received 6-7" of snow yesterday. Unfortunately, the previous weeks warm up had set up soggy base that is now solid ice. We were able to set track for classic cross country skiing only. The red trail is in good shape, though the base of some tracks are icy, and pole plants will encounter ice. The yellow spur trail has many bare spots. The yellow/green return trail is in very good shape. Unfortunately, warmer weather will mean rapid deterioration of trail conditions, so come out soon to enjoy maybe the last good ski of the winter.

  Trail conditions are fair to good, excellent in some areas. Reset track on heavily used portions of Red, Yellow and Green Trails. Glad to see that many skiers had been out during the week despite the cold temps. Track is full depth in all but a few low snow areas under hemlocks and cedars. There's a little forest debris here and there.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Trail conditions were fair to good, excellent in many areas. After about 6" of low to medium moisture content snow yesterday, all trails were rolled, packed and track set. Tracks are full depth nearly everywhere with the exception of a few low snow areas here and there and thru the pine plantation on the yellow trail. The old growth portion of the green trail was rolled and packed but track was not set. Woods debris is minimal. Tracks will be a little soft until they setup overnight. Whitefish Dunes State Park is groomed for classic only.

  Trail conditions - Poor, good in a few areas. With recent warm temps followed by a cool down and about 1/2" new snow on top, trails have deteriorated in many areas, with ponding in some low areas that has frozen. As long as temps stay below freezing, some of the trails are skiable, but the forecast is for above freezing temps for the weekend, which will turn the minimal trail base into slush. This is also the situation for the winter hiking trails. Consequently, the annual Candlelight Ski scheduled for Saturday evening has been cancelled.

  Wife and I skied the red trail. Temp was in the mi-30's. Although there were a couple thin spots and a bit of ice in the track, we felt the trail was in good condition.
