  Today I skied from the Schulze Lake beach toward Marsh Lake and then came back Portage Lake to marker 34 and then back to Schulze lake (Schulze to 60 to 51 to 34 to 40 to the visitor center and beyond). The snow was much as you'd expect: somewhat soft in the open area and icy hard in the forested areas. It was common to see tracks obliterated in highly trafficked area and on some descents. Along the route that goes past the auxiliary parking lot, I saw a few patches of yellow, which... could be dog but I took to be thinning snow. But I did not come across dirt, and leaves and pine cones were thankfully few. I did see plenty of footprints along the way, plus a few piles of scat.

  Went in at holland lake. Yesterday's rain and snow mostly covered the set tracks and left a thin but skiable snowcone base. I was spiderman both up and down the hills on my trusty waxless. Lots of thin spots but not yet any open ones, and a serviceable trail set by an earlier intrepid strider. Get out today and burn some calories! It's gorgeous out there.

  Lebanon Hills trails, particularly those near the visitor center are showing wear. Tracks are very shallow with dirt showing thru in many spots. They are fast and icy, particularly after the rain started about 4:30pm. But with waxless skis and or grip tape, good kick was possible. Had a good ski and tested 2 pairs of waxless skis but my grip tape beat them all.

  Skied Lebanon Hills trails West of Jensen Lake (accessed by taking path thru tunnel under Pilot Knob road). Trails were in amazingly good shape. Skied the outside loop first thru the camp ground then took the horse trail by the last hill before leaving the park and re-entered the park skiing the inside loop this time around which was barely skied on. There was evidence of footprints in groomed areas but walkers at least stayed out of tracks except the deer of course. I saw two spots with some ground starting to show thru but it was in left side of tracks so I stayed right and had no problems. Because of all the hills I do recommend this area for more experienced skiers. Great ski, good job groomers!

  Conditions Sunday were wonderful, good skis usable and no bare patches. The track had been skied out a bit by heavy traffic in spots, and I found only one icy patch on a sharp corner. Beautiful ski overall.
