  The best ski ever around Deer Yard loop (clockwise) - pristine grooming and lovely snow even along the usually problematic Deer Yard Lake shore line - Thank you groomers!

  Deeryard area has not been packed or set since the big snowfall two days ago. Bushwhacked counter-clockwise, skipping the fire tower spur and the "short loop." Powder was mid-calf deep. From "G" to parking area, a single track had been made by other skiers. Exhausting! Excellent snow, though! Should be perfect once groomed.

  Skied the upper loop and up to the fire tower {clockwise on Saturday and counter clockwise on Sunday). Good snow with deep, slightly glazed tracks...great glide! 35F on Saturday and 26F on Sunday. Although the Northeast can use some fresh snow, ski conditions are pretty darn good! Much better than we anticipated. Get out there and have fun!

  Skied from cascade to the solbakken trails, looped the hall loop and back. Cascade connected had not been groomed in since the last snow, hall loop had. Generally good coverage, but plenty of thin spots to navigate. The snow currently falling and a fresh groom will likely solve most of the coverage issues. In terms of scenery, these trails are fantastic. Awesome to be skiing through the spruce and cedar stands.

  Skied the Deeryard loop including Fire Tower and Short Loop. Tall raspberry stems that weren't mowed this fall continue to be a hindrance on the lakeside of the loop and are really bad on the Short loop. The tracks are on the shallow side, but are quite functional with a dusty of new snow this afternoon. Fire tower was in the best condition as was rest of the loop away from the lake. The Short loop was bumpy and full of tall stubble that made the downhills a bit scary. I would avoid it unless you are skilled downhiller and can hang in the tracks to go over and thru the stubble. Snowplowing would not work! Was an exciting run!
