  3 to 4" of very wet snow fell Friday. Temp's cooled down overnight to about 27 at 3 pm today. I rolled the skate lanes on all segments once, some twice. Skating looks perfect - Spring skiing at its finest. Almost all rocks are covered now, but sun will expose those on south slopes. You could certainly use good skis if watchful.

  18 above, sunny. Skated Green, Orange, Yellow, and Red trails. The thick base is very hard and where no loose cover edging is difficult. Probably 1/3 of the time we double poled such areas. Lots of debris in some sections. But nonetheless skiing is fabulous. We met fat tire bikers at Black Bay, and the trail is perfect now for biking. The rocks are showing on south-facing hills - we walked those parts.

  Skated all trails in perfect Spring weather- sunny 35 F. Snow just beginning to squeak at 2 hours. There's about an inch of loose snow on top of very hard base. All trails are fine for skating, no tracks other than what classic skiers have made. Base is good except for usual bare spots where ridges face the sun.

  +3F, sunny! Instead of Hayward, I groomed today. Finished renovating Blue Trails. Yesterday we did the Yellow and Red. All segments now have a refreshed skate lane with good corduroy on level surface. We probably cannot set tracks until we get new snow.

  With sun and 25F we started renovating the Tilson Creek trails today. There's about 6 to 8" of hard base in most places. We made several passes to cut the icy crust and set corduroy for the skate lane on the Green, "new" Blue, old Blue from new back to Orange, and one pass on the rest of the Orange back to first shelter. We saw one skater who reported fast skiing, and whose tracks looked good. There are a couple of bare spots on the Orange, but easily avoided. No tracks yet. Back in action!
