  The south Wirth trails will not be groomed any more this season. Thanks for the great season and all the use!

  All groomed, except South of Glenwood Ave.South had been gone over with snowmobile but no groomer. You could ski it but need to be skinny and fast footed, kinda scary. The rest was outstanding. I did a lot of crust skiing and it was great freedom. Stay off the tees and greens! (I'm a golf course guy).

  Skated Butler and Bog blue trails Thursday afternoon. Nice groomed corduroy everywhere. Picked up a bunch or branches and speed sapping pine-cones along the way. A few more hikers and dogs out on the ski trails this week.

  I was surprised to see that South Wirth has not been groomed at all since the snow on Monday. There is a lot of snow, and clearly people have been skiing, but no sign of grooming. I started the trail and then turned back to the other side of Glenwood, which is groomed.

  The snowmobile-based grooming crew did a fantastic job tilling up the South Wirth trails this early morning! JD Rivers, Wirth Lake, Jar Hill, Eloise Butler, and the Bog are all in great shape all the way to 394. Lots of excellent spring skiing throughout the entire South Wirth trail system, without too much ice to worry about thanks to the quality grooming. The snow was very clean and there is very little forest debris to worry about. Just a tiny bare patch here and there, and a few small sections of ice, but all very avoidable. As a bonus, they laid down nice classic tracks wherever possible on the South Wirth trails. With the last week of highs in the 40s, it's pretty amazing how awesome the early mornings have been for skiing this week - thanks, groomers!
