[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Skied late afternoon, and trails were in overall fair to good shape. Dirty spots are getting dirtier, and starting to see a handful of smaller rocks surfacing. Snow was quite soft and getting wet. Not quite rock skis, but it's getting closer... Ad hoc connector trail on north side to avoid ice build-up is probably the worse, with foliage coming through, but no rocks/dirt.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I had a good ski at Baker today. The skating lane was in good shape with very little dirt or debris. The classic tracks were good to very good on the Hill and Prairie trails. Otherwise they were inconsistent in fair to sometimes good condition. Considering our lack of snowfall, Baker has done a great job trying to groom classic tracks.

[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Very good skate conditions; fairly consistent but shallow classic track. 28 degrees and sunny. Skied the entire perimeter except Evergreen, which was in poor condition; there were occasional dirt bleed thru's but they were no problem to skate around. Only recall one on a downhill, the curve where the trail coming over from Evergreen linked into the trail from the chalet to Island Trail. Snow was generally dry with a few moist spots where my skis waxed with FastWax Salmon (old color scheme) HF and buffed with Fluoro paste seemed to run faster. I did five miles at a 5.8 MPH pace.

  Hill, Timber and Prairie trails are in good shape for skating. A few minor dirty spots which can be skied around. Trails were well skied by afternoon but still good. Classic tracks were good considering. They broke thru to ground occasionally but usable with b or rock skis.
