We skate skied from 11:30 until 1:00 PM with a temperature at 1-2 C. and conditions were wonderful. You can hear the snow crunching beneath the skis, more so on top of the deer tracks. A couple days ago, we saw about 6 deer on the same trail. The base is still nice and firm and a least a foot thick so it should be good for a week or more of these temperatures. Enjoy!
