Trails are in very good condition and are very firm with the exception of the Basswood trail which was groomed today so somewhat softer until the tracks set up overnight. Only minor debris (small leaves) are in the tracks.
From Esther MacKinlay:
March 10. Tried skiing these trails for the first time. Pretty trails through deciduous forests. A few hills on the north side gave us some thrills and challenges. Really enjoyed skiing these pretty trails. Freshly groomed classic tracks with fun signs and personal touches. There were even several sections freshly groomed…[Read more]
Did not appear to have been groomed but the skier track was pretty good for a skier track.
Signs of a single walker beside the trail… seemed to have only done the Elm trail though…At least that person stayed on the side but even one walker is bad because that attracts many walkers…..

Skied Wild Grape and Elm (the main loop) and Basswood (across the river) on Tues 1st. Last week’s groom is still in good shape. However, the wind has left a fair bit of leaf & stick litter in the tracks. Cottonwood was blown out, seemed like no tracks.
