  We have decided to cease grooming for the season with warm temps starting tomorrow. Most of the trail has enough snow for skiing with some bare spots here and there so be careful if you give it a go. Glad to have some natural snow all the way into mid March! Great snow season!

  I skied the entire course except for Ski Games. The coverage is still pretty good except for the few spots where melting typically happens, like near the bottom of the lighted loop. Where there is shade, the skate deck was mostly firm. There are hopefully a few more days of decent skiing left.

  Battle creek has amazingly varying conditions, some portions are fantastic with ice well-set skate and classical tracks, 10 yards later is a miserable conglomeration of brown icy stuff, then a few yards later something entirely different. Skate tracks fluctuate but are mostly icy. There is one section of the long back loop that is completely dirt and forest floor for about 50 feet, that section is rock skis or remove the skis and walk (what I chose to do).

  Skied Silver, Ski Games, and WC trails at noon. All trails but Ski Games were freshly track and in very good late winter condition. Ski Games was a little ruff because of walkers and it hadn't been groomed in a few days. There is plenty of snow there. Skate lane looked great, smooth and flat. Just a few spots starting to get sun burn out.

  Skied the gold loop (which was beginning to soften up but still holding up well with a couple bare spots) and the ski games loop (which is always fun and provides good birdwatching, but is pretty damaged due to foot traffic). Had a great time on a beautiful warm and sunny afternoon. Today is very likely my last ski of the season. Thank you 2017-18 season, you were amazing! Also many thanks to the volunteer groom crew - your skilled work is much appreciated!
