  What a great way to end the season, the same way it began back in November: Breaking trail. I skied the Deeryard loop including Fire Tower and the Short Loop today after Friday's snow of a few inches. No grooming had been done but skiing was great. No debris, temps just below freezing. New snow was not sticky. Good skis fine. Great year on the north shore. Very thankful for all the grooming efforts and the great year we have had up on the north shore. There is plenty of snow left as can be seen in the photo.

  Skied the Deeryard loop around noon today. Conditions were fast with a few low spots where I had to be careful but there is still a great base of around 12 inches, perfectly set tracks and just a few skiers. I guess people don't believe there is snow! Hooking up with a friend to go tomorrow as well. We are going to do the ski down to Cascade around the far side of Deeryard lake.

  Skied from the snowmobile parking lot on Hwy 61 up the Ridge Run trail, over to Deeryard, around the loop including fire tower and short loop trails and back down the Pioneer trail. Lots of debris, but plenty of snow. Deck remained firm, Rex Universal Grip tape was wonderful, great kick and no debris. Glide, not so much but fun day but classic tracks are fine.

  We enjoyed great spring skiing conditions at Deeryard Saturday. The trails were groomed great and our hairy skis worked very well for the conditions. Snow depth is excellent, but there is some debris in the tracks so we recommend using your best hairy or other waxless skis. FYI - we also found out the Murmur Creek Rd is not plowed all the way through!

  I skied from Cascade Lodge up to Deeryard and back. Beautiful scenery and fresh grooming. Trails were perfect in the morning. By mid day the spots in the sun were getting soft and grabby, making my skis slow down rapidly whenever I hit them.
