  Skated the Island-Timber-Prairie "loop", noting that the groomers had done their usual fine work to make most of the deck good, also dumping snow on a bare spot on one of the first downhills, and on the connection to the Island Trail, that loop having dirt showing through on all the usual places, including the sharp left curve at its north end, which I found sort of treacherous at speed. The rest of this 8.7 km loop has good coverage, except the very start, the short downhill starting the Timber Trail, and maybe a few of the shorter hills. In summary, Island Trail probably rock skis, the rest probably B skis.

  You could use your good skis but perhaps an errant pebble... Baker is great, the entire loop! Groomers have it ready for tomorrows fun ski/race 8:30am!

  Groomers at Baker are doing an awesome job of covering over the brown spots from Wednesday's thaw and keeping the natural snow in great condition. Much better trail conditions today than what we had on Thursday. It's not the perfect glacial skate deck we've become used to with man-made trails, but great conditions for natural snow.

  We did the Island trail which had a few dangerous spots at 12:30pm today, then Hill trail and Fairway trail. Skate skiing was still in OK condition but classic will likely be closed later this afternoon. When we arrived, skate conditions were good and classic were Poor. There was also a .7k section near the clubhouse that was closed. We skied French last week and feel that they had a better base so far this season.

  Most segments were quite nice. While there were some areas with debris or dirt patches, they were easily avoidable. If you are on good skis, I would recommend extra caution on the island loop.
