  The Park is rating trails as "fair". I found the Skyline trail excellent (that was all I skied on). Yesterdays snow and last nights grooming has set up nicely. Skate deck was great. Classic tracks looked good.

  Went for a classic ski around 10am. The trails appeared to be freshly packed, and I found it easier to ski outside of the classic tracks that were set...as those were fairly icy. The groomer passed me towards the end of my ski so I had a chance to ski in the freshly set tracks --- not much better. That being said, it was beautiful, peaceful, and all and all worth the trip and time spent skiing. I'll probably be back tomorrow.

  Had a window to ski at French this morning and took advantage of it. Arrived to an empty parking lot and fresh corduroy everywhere. Yesterday's snow was enough to cover any bare ground and/or ice left over from the weekend meltdown; there were only a few places (such as the entry to the Lagoon Trail) that were showing some thin spots. A few twigs and leaves scattered here and there but nothing I couldn't' ski over or around. I did notice on subsequent laps a few places where my strides had cut in close to dirt so I was glad I was on B-skis. The groomer attempted to set classic tracks while I was there with variable success. I could see it was thin in places and hitting ground in others.

  Still really good. A few icy patches in low lying areas but manageable. Some sticks and leaves as well but easy to work around. Perfect firm deck. Skied around 8:30am and only saw two other skiers.

  The skate deck was in great condition and the classic tracks were average. Fun to get out and ski on some natural snow.
