Not even a flake at Birkie. Winter Park has good B skiing on some trails, with bare spots easily to get around. Looks like Greenbush is getting drilled with lots of blue on the radar. Hope they get thundersnow overnight. Going to ABR tomorrow and check it out. Winter isn't over yet.

Greenbush: Report by Kevin Donnelly on Thursday Feb 23 2017 at 8:13pm
So, sitting in Hayward watching the weather system hit further south than originally expected. Looks like it's all hitting way south, Greenbush area. Who'd be up for grabbing your Birkie or Korte bib, a 6 pack of beer, something for the grill, and having a fake Birkie at Greenbush if the trails are skiable Saturday? Birkie would be 6 greens, 2 purples, and a brown. Korte 4 greens a purple and a brown.

A GREAT winter in Greenbush consist of good skiing from about December 10-March 20, with rock skiing until the 1st of April or so. In addition, Sunburst is usually making snow well before Thanksgiving in a great winter. If we have 3 great winters and 2 good ones (and then hopefully 2 fair ones and no bad ones) in the next 7, that would be great. These last two winters have been awful, especially in southern KM.

I was with the Lapham Peak Groomer this morning who attempted to groom the small ski loop around Luppo Pond. After about 6+ passes we ended up with a few sections that are ok for skiing but not the whole loop. Basically there is a small horseshoe like trail about 200 yards on each side of the pond that could be skied but thats it (no loop). Not sure what today's warm weather will do to it though since we will get some added melting. I appreciate the DNR groomer giving it a good shot this morning.

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Saturday Feb 18 2017 at 10:57pm
Greenbush was excellent on Thursday and Friday evening. I went there Saturday late afternoon/early evening and found it OK, but going downhill fast. Still lots of base, mostly icy snow but skiable. Not worth the trip unless you live close. Will have to wait for more snow maybe after the Birkie. Going biking/hiking Sunday in southern KM. Think snow!!!

Lapham: Report by Birkeman on Saturday Feb 18 2017 at 9:28am
Park staff published yesterday there would be no grooming this am. Found un-skiable crusty snow and Boiler plate ice. There may be a ski window when it softens up the snow sections. Ice will stay Ice without grooming. The north and east leg of the warm up loop is mostly ice espc at the bottom of Carpet Ride. The best loop almost skiable is the main trial up to Summer Stage Hill then return to start on south leg of warmup loop. Going roller skiing.

Zillmer: Report by Reagan groomer on Friday Feb 17 2017 at 4:12pm
Mostly ice conditions and some bare spots. No plans to do any grooming until cold and snow return.

Lapham: Report by John McCarthy on Friday Feb 17 2017 at 10:42am
As noted below - nice skiing on the manmade loops this morning. Generally same conditions as yesterday. Skis stayed clean despite the 45 degrees when I left at 9:30. See pics on Skinnyski. Worth another look tomorrow morning, early. Grooming wouldn't hurt.

Lapham: Report by Oscar Rupt on Friday Feb 17 2017 at 10:23am
First time at LP. Went out this morning, sun is shining! Great Conditions for the higher temps. Always nice to ski even when it's warm outside. May try to get up to Zilmer if there's snow later. The post by Matt below is funny, too bad he's too grouchy critical.

Skate skied Iola 2-15-17. I agree with Charlie Dee about Iola, as Phil grooms well with his Piston Bully. As soon as you drive into Waupaca there is snow and Iola is skiable once Phil does his wonders by 10 A.M. We are lucky to have dedicated groomers like Phil at Iola and Jerry at Fox Hills. Thank you.

Lapham: Report by John McCarthy on Thursday Feb 16 2017 at 11:41am
Conditions on the manmade snow loops are mixed, from fair to good. The rock solid base is still a foot or more deep in most sections, but there are some icy spots. Very nice skiing around the main loop this morning -- mostly a couple of inches of ground-up ice on the base, with some stretches that have to be double poled. Dirty, but the dirty doesn't come out until it gets several degrees above freezing. A shallow track is evident in some sections. Saw two school buses of high school kids enjoying the skiing this morning. Should be good on early Friday morning.

Lapham: Report by Matt stanke on Thursday Feb 16 2017 at 5:09am
Snow cones anyone. Just add coloring. Stick a fork in it. Too dirty and too icy. Lake Lapham looks impressive though. See ya next season.

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Thursday Feb 16 2017 at 5:05am
The good, bad and ugly. The good, still lots of base on 95% of the trail and 2 more days of decent skiing. The bad, bare spots are emerging, use B skis if you don't know the area. Bare spots for the most part are avoidable. The ugly, the forecast. After the holiday weekend, we will need a significant snowstorm to get Greenbush back into shape. The more ugly, if we don't get any good snows within 10 days after the Birkie, most SE Wisconsin trail systems will be closing shop for the season and getting ready for spring. Sorry, but honest report.

Other: Report by Charlie Dee on Wednesday Feb 15 2017 at 6:02pm
Very good skiing still at Iola, the closest venue to Milwaukee with quality conditions for skating. Crusty in a few spots, but Phil was tilling up with the Piston Bully, so the skate deck was fast with excellent control. Classic tracks were solid but glazed over in some places. Tomorrow (Thursday) could be the last excellent day with warm temps arriving Friday.

Lapham: Report by Rich M on Wednesday Feb 15 2017 at 11:06am
Lapham was very nicely groomed this morning. Most of the trail is very good (considering weather) with about 4 shorter ice sections about 10 to 20 yards long in various spots (just double pole through them). Tail end is good going up with misc sticks at top but not too bad. Magic carpet is passable on the left side of the trail but take caution at the bottom since icy there. Worth the ski and the snow is generally pretty clean. Thanks grooming!

Lapham: Report by Kris Maki on Wednesday Feb 15 2017 at 9:15am
There will be a race tonight but skiers must use caution and plan to ski 5 laps of the lower loop, using the playground for the east side trail. See grooming report from this a..m.

Lapham: Report by Rick V on Monday Feb 13 2017 at 1:08pm
Skated the man made loop this morning 9:30-10:30am. Skiing was good in most areas except very icy coming down magic carpet. Previous advice to ski before 10:30am is appropriate.Looks like snow will hold up for one or more days but ??

Lapham: Report by Matt stanke on Sunday Feb 12 2017 at 9:27pm
First hand report from good friend. Getting bad in spots. Dirty in spots also. If you ski when its warm, you will have to clean your skis each time. Magic carpet ride is getting icy. Next weekend may be it for the man made loops. 60F next weekend. We need a whole winter like we had in December. At least our bodies rest before the Birkie.

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Sunday Feb 12 2017 at 9:23pm
The good, bad and ugly. The good...still skiable with lots of base, but only for good-elite skiers. Smaller downhills are fine, but bigger ones are tricky. Uphills and flats are fine. The bad...the pine plantations on the purple are littered and dirty. Best to avoid them. Red, back green and brown are best. The ugly...10 day forecast. Going to be an interested race for the Birkie. Greenbush should survived at least til next Sunday. After that, I don't know.

As of 2:30 Sat. Trails and parking lot are closed until conditions improve.

Zillmer: Report by Holly LaVesser on Saturday Feb 11 2017 at 1:32pm
Trails are fair. I did 2 yellow loops skating. The shared beginning is rough - many ice patches and debris. However, once yellow branched off, it was good skiing, albeit slow in the warmer conditions. I got great push-off in all but the few icy spots. The shared end was also in rough shape, but decent, given the weather this past week. It was worth the drive for me, though I was done by 11, before the warm conditions really set in.

Greenbush: Report by BatMaker on Saturday Feb 11 2017 at 12:40pm
Well worth the trip from the quad cities! Trails had good cover but notes debri in the lines so best to avoid them. Skated purple, red and green. All in good shape fairly fast and firm with good purchase going up hills. A few slightly icy areas but easily avoidable. It' was like a magical winter wonderland consider the recent weather.

Fox_Hill: Report by Jerry on Saturday Feb 11 2017 at 8:12am
Groomed this a.m. Upper fields are good, about an inch of fluff over hard pack and ice, not to worry about rutting, corn snow. Did the lower prairie but unless your life/health ins. premiums are paid, wouldn't go down there.

Fox_Hill: Report by Jerry on Friday Feb 10 2017 at 5:07pm
Upper fields truck lane and lower prairie were groomed this afternoon for skate will be regroomed in the morning about 7 or so. Truck lane is very icy in spots with some deep ruts from someone who skied it on Monday, but the lower prairie appears to be in pretty good shape. Upper field are good. B skis.

Lapham: Report by Rick V on Friday Feb 10 2017 at 1:55pm
Skated the man made loop at Lapham this am and it was in very good condition. Classic looked good also. A few ice spots but easily skied around. Even with the warm weather the skiing should be good at least through the weekend, although the trail will probably need a grooming touch up.

Zillmer: Report by Reagan Groomer on Friday Feb 10 2017 at 1:13pm
I groomed the skating lanes on all loops except for the brown this morning. Overall conditions are fair. Warm temps through the weekend will change conditions quickly throughout the day. The best conditions are on the back portion of the red loop and yellow loop. Three downhill spots on the yellow will warrant you pay special attention due to iciness and some troughs worn into the center.

Greenbush: Report by Ray Beebe on Friday Feb 10 2017 at 10:55am
Groomer is working on all the loops and should be done by noon. Skied the red, pink, and red/green loops for a couple hours. After grooming they are in good shape with some short icy patches. I would avoid the first pine tree section on the green/purple it is dirty and icy. The skate lane is still fast but not to the point of being dangerous. Track is still hard and icy.

Other: Report by Jeff Grotenhuis on Friday Feb 10 2017 at 8:44am
Crust Skiing. Just something for the diehard skaters to consider, crust skiing is good if you have a wide open space. I was out this morning skiing with my students and the open areas around school (Kewaskum Middle School) were firm enough to keep me on top of the snow, yet forgiving enough to get a decent push.

Zillmer: Report by Reagan Groomer on Friday Feb 10 2017 at 8:15am
Going out now to try to renovate the skate lanes.

Greenbush: Report by Greg Konieczny on Thursday Feb 9 2017 at 10:34pm
I strided the purple and red trails.  Tracks are still well formed and moderately deep although rock hard and showing glare ice in some areas.  Swix blue klister worked quite well but it's best to jump out of the tracks on the uphills.  Lots of twigs and leaves showing up on the trail.  The skate lane was roughened up just enough to reduce the fear factor on the downhills.  Plenty of snow on the trail.

Zillmer: Report by Chris Kemble on Thursday Feb 9 2017 at 5:44pm
And Greenbush. Icy hard pack. Technical skiing not for the faint of heart.

Fox_Hill: Report by Jeff Grotenhuis on Thursday Feb 9 2017 at 5:43pm
Fox Hill Nordic is hanging onto winter with dear life. There is about 1.5 miles of scarified skate deck in the upper fields and corkscrew which is rather decent. I felt safe and steady throughout but it was fast. A rogue skier skated through the slush probably late on Tuesday rutting up some areas. Jerry did a nice job making it all navigable. Worth the trip but I would advise B-skis.

Greenbush: Report by Ray Beebe on Thursday Feb 9 2017 at 3:15pm
Parked in the upper lot and did red, pink, and red/green trails. Looks like the groomer made one pass on all the loops since the rain. Really needed 2-3 to break up the icy/crusty snow. The common trail sections are hard and icy. Downhill sections are blazingly fast with just enough control. There are a few scattered ruts from the warm weather skiers. One of these took me down on the green trail and yes it really hurts to slide 30 feet on hard crusty snow. The track reminded me of an Olympic toboggan run - hard icy and fast. The best way to describe skating today was dangerously fast and fun.

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Thursday Feb 9 2017 at 5:53am
Honest report!! Yes there is a deep base as Greenbush but is in NOT worth the drive. It has been groomed, but it is VERY hard pack and the downhills are icy and dangerous. Hard at times to get an edge. I ski here a lot and I describe the conditions as Boilerplate. The rain on Tuesday made the trails hard as a rock. Skiing should be fun, not scarry and believe me, I did NOT enjoy my 1 hour outing on Wed, evening. I decided to leave and not count it as an outing, but as a learning experience. Sorry, but this is a honest report. Hopefully we will get all snow next winter and no rain and warm temps. I heard Zillmer is in rough condition also.

Greenbush: Report by Robert on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 11:25pm
Skied on the Purple Trail at Greenbush Wednesday afternoon. The skate deck was icy; however, the groomers had done a nice job breaking up the surface to allow for a reasonable amount of control. Classic tracks appeared to be glare ice, and the classic skiers I saw were skiing in the skate lane. A bit of debris on the trail, but a deep base remains throughout.

Lapham: Report by Rich M on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 7:52pm
Lapham had some excellent grooming at 5pm. Trail is in great shape tonight considering the recent weather.

Lapham: Report by Paul Keber on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 4:08pm
Skied the man-made loops after they were re-groomed late this morning. Good conditions on the skating lane with enough loose snow to get good edging. Several icy spots that aren't too bad to ski over. Stay to the left coming down Magic Carpet Ride until you pass the large icy patch on the right. Tracks were not re-groomed, so they are icy.

Lapham: Report by Kris Maki on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 2:41pm
Wed. Night Ski League will happen tonight. The trail has been groomed twice since the colder weather set in.

Zillmer: Report by Reagan Groomer on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 2:38pm
It rained all day yesterday and froze up overnight, which made everything icy. The classic tracks were glare ice, so I groomed over the top of them this morning. Don't expect a lot from the classic tracks, could not reset the classic tracks. I groomed all of the skating lanes on all of the loops. Someone skate skied on the trails yesterday afternoon in the rain and made a lot of mush marks and divots that froze overnight. This made the surface nasty and dangerous for skiers. Please don't ski on the trails when they are that soft. I was able to groom some of it out but not all. The skaters will find conditions to be fair, maybe even good all things considered. There are some icy spots to negotiate in places. There are three steep downhills on the yellow that have some deep troughs and ridges from snowplowing that may surprise you if not paying attention. The red/green and yellow have the best conditions. The brown has a lot of icy spots. Enjoy today, tomorrow and maybe Friday morn. before the warmup moves in again.

Lapham: Report by Matthew Rausch on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 1:42pm

Greenbush: Report by Kevin Donnelly on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 12:51pm
Anyone know if Greenbush has been groomed after the rain and warm weather yesterday. Heard it was all ice in the morning and wondering if it's worth the trip out.

Fox_Hill: Report by Jerry on Wednesday Feb 8 2017 at 9:36am
Groomed the upper fields, good overall, some icy spots, some ruts, but about a mile and a half of good skiing with a good climb.

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Monday Feb 6 2017 at 7:42pm
Greenbush is in GREAT shape. Just a few areas in the pines with needles. Lightning fast after 4 pm when the temps cooled. 6-8" base with 2" ice underneath the base. Grooming was done Monday morning, thanks. Freezing rain advisory for later tonight for very light glazing. 31F when I left at 6 pm. and fog developing. Filtered sun throughout most of the day felt great with mid-upper 30's.

Fox_Hill: Report by Jeff Grotenhuis on Monday Feb 6 2017 at 6:07pm
Fox Hill was soft but in overall pretty good condition this afternoon. There is full coverage with an occasional exposed root or bare spot, especially in the wooded area. The skate deck was level and the classic track appeared in fair condition. Hoping the forecasted rain turns to snow.

Lapham: Report by Rick V on Monday Feb 6 2017 at 11:08am
Classic skied the man made loop this am. Very good conditions, both skate and classic. With sun and no wind it was great!

The skiing at Greenbush on Monday will be as GREAT as the comeback of the Patriot Win on Sunday night. I'll be there in the morning. Get out there and ski til you drop!!!!

Zillmer: Report by Darren Blankenship on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 7:08pm
Good conditions for skating early this morning. Joanie and I skated the red, green, and brown trails twice since they had been groomed Saturday night. Yellow trail was not regroomed. A really fun morning since temps were upper 20s and the glide was working great!

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 5:39pm
DELIGHTFUL!!!! 6-10" firm base. A lot of snow in the northern kettles. Should easily make it thru the rain on Tuesday. Please stay off trails if conditions get warm and wet.

Scuppernong: Report by John Maki on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 2:39pm
While hiking and checking out Scuppernong, I was disappointed to see that there was quite a lot of snow on the trail and it hasn't been rolled. It would make a great base for when we do get a few inches. The trail is actually skiable now, with considerable care and rock skis. It should be rolled.

Pike_Lake: Report by Sara Crook on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 12:51pm
Trails where groomed late this morning. Track is in decent shape but is thin and nonexistent in a few areas. A few areas of debris.

Zillmer: Report by Ray Beebe on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 11:15am
Skate lane on the red, green and brown loops was freshly groomed. Yellow loop was not groomed but is still in good condition overall. Good control on the down hill sections and kind of slow with the warmer temps. The track is a bit faster than the skate lane.

Zillmer: Report by Matt stanke on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 5:18am
Great candlelight on Saturday evening. My 10 year old Daughter and I hiked thru the deep 6-9" base on brown trail where over 400 candles in bags were lit. Mixed of hikers/skiers. Great cookies, apple cider, bonfire and friendly people everywhere.

Lapham: Report by Matt stanke on Sunday Feb 5 2017 at 5:13am
The man made were in the best condition of season late Saturday morning/afternoon. Fast, firm and fun. Sunday and Monday should be better w/o the gusty winds.

Greenbush: Report by BennyB on Saturday Feb 4 2017 at 5:51pm
Skated purple loops today from 10:30-12:30. Full coverage, firm base. Not a lot of loose snow, but enough to get an edge throughout. Lot was jam packed, get there early. Also, be prepared to change/gear up in the parking lot as the shelter is always "reserved".

Zillmer: Report by Ray Beebe on Saturday Feb 4 2017 at 1:12pm
All loops are good to very good for skating or classic. There is some moderate debris in the pine areas. Red loop hills are in good shape and yellow hills have significant berming on the turns. good control on all downhill sections. Expect about average glide with the mix of warm and cold snow.

Greenbush: Report by Matt stanke on Friday Feb 3 2017 at 11:16pm
Much better than Zillmer. 6-8" bombproof base with over a foot of snow in the woods. A bit slow today due to the recent very cold nights. Should speed up this weekend and next week with warmer temps.

Lapham: Report by Holly LaVesser on Friday Feb 3 2017 at 8:23pm
I skied the entire black loop late Thursday afternoon and some additional trails not part of black and all have snow coverage. There is a bit of grass poking through in the field sections, and many rock tips poking through in the wooded areas. It was passable and I was happy to have a break from the loop!

Lapham: Report by Rich M on Friday Feb 3 2017 at 3:34pm
The man made loop was in excellent shape Friday am and well groomed. Snow is also clean. Few people have skied the other loops with rock ski's and was ok

Greenbush: Report by Greg Konieczny on Thursday Feb 2 2017 at 9:16pm
Classic skied purple and green trails this afternoon.  Very good snow cover all around. The trails were recently groomed and tracked and conditions are excellent.

Zillmer: Report by Jeff Grotenhuis on Thursday Feb 2 2017 at 8:24pm
Conditions at Zillmer are very good for skating. A firm and fast skate deck with good control and 100% coverage. The big downhill on yellow near the ice age center should be traversed with caution as it is largely washed out. Classic tracks look deep throughout. Enjoy.

Lapham: Report by John McCarthy on Thursday Feb 2 2017 at 2:25pm
Excellent conditions persist on the manmade snow loops. Loose surface on a firm base makes for fun skiing, skate and classic. Recent grooming has smoothed out the trail east of the nordic playground area, re-establishing the normal trail layout.

Pike_Lake: Report by Sara Crook on Thursday Feb 2 2017 at 2:04pm
Trails where groomed this afternoon. Track was set. Thin in spots underneath heavy foliage but overall in great shape.

Fox_Hill: Report by BennyB on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 7:30pm
Skated Fox Hill today at 4:00pm. The extra snow slowed things down a bit, but full coverage everywhere! Woods loops were much better than the weekend, no concerns with using good skis. Fox is great right now, definitely worth the $8 daily rate. Season pass next year for sure!

Greenbush: Report by Greenbush Grooming on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 4:07pm
Can someone post a report for Greenbush? I would like to know when the trails are groomed and/or will next be groomed. Thanks.

Lapham: Report by George Gesior on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 4:02pm
Skied the back 40 (Black trail) as mentioned everything is groomed. They did a great job! Mostly clean snow. I was on classic skis and although no tracks are set I had a very nice ski over the lunch hour. There was not enough snow to cover timbers so two-tier is in pretty rough shape. The lighted loop has seen a little more traffic so not quite as clean as back in the woods. Still rock skis but in good shape.

Lapham: Report by Rich M on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 12:26pm
Man Made loop is in great shape at Lapham. Nicely groomed and snow is clean - thanks groomers and snow making. I was able to ski southfield and some of the lower trails also with my B-ski's. Not too bad but need to watch for few sticks and spots. Best to use the South hill and two tier cut-offs though.

Lapham: Report by Rich M on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 8:59am
Just stopped at Lapham at 8:30am. Trails look great and freshly groomed. Going back to get my skis to get some skiing in.

Fox_Hill: Report by Charlie Dee on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 7:53am
Skied all of FH yesterday (Tuesday) except for new figure 8 loop that was added in 2015. Very good for skating, good for classic. Complete coverage, just a couple of icy spots that are easy to see. Classic tracks on Prairie Trails only are deep but not yet firm. While no classic tracks in west woods, several striders were happy on the skate deck.

Fox_Hill: Report by Jeff Grotenhuis on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 at 7:49am
I light fairy dusting of snow over an impeccably manicured skate deck made for near perfect conditions for skating this morning at FHN. There is 100% coverage throughout and the wooded hills/loops are safe. There is a classic track set on most of the non-wooded areas. Thank you Jerry!

Pike_Lake: Report by Sara Crook on Tuesday Jan 31 2017 at 4:12pm
We received approximately 2 inches of fresh powder last night. Trails where groomed this afternoon. Snow was not quite deep enough to set track. Trails are thin in spots but are fully covered.

Zillmer: Report by Jeff Grotenhuis on Tuesday Jan 31 2017 at 1:42pm
Zillmer received 3-4 inches of snow Monday into Tuesday. While it has not yet been groomed, the conditions were soft and slow but generally good throughout for skating. Full coverage with an occasional twig or branch. The classic track was man-made but appeared deep. A friend reported 20+ cars in the lot around noon.

Lapham: Report by John McCarthy on Tuesday Jan 31 2017 at 9:06am
The snowmaking loops are in their best condition of the season, with a deep, solid base and a mix of new and manmade snow on top. Trails have been smoothed and leveled since the warm-up last week. Great skating conditions. There is a classic track, but it looks like it could use some work

Fox_Hill: Report by Jon Lange on Sunday Jan 29 2017 at 3:02pm
A light sugary layer over a solid snow base of fresh corduroy that had been lightly skied in. Hats off to the groomers for keeping us in such great skiing. Only the deepest part of the west trail is sketchy (I St and thin). Everything else...ah...!

Fox_Hill: Report by BennyB on Sunday Jan 29 2017 at 2:30pm
Skated Fox Hill this morning at 10:00am. WOW, the trails are beautiful! Can't believe it's possible that far south:) The open sections are best, wide and smooth and plenty of chord. Attempted the woodsy West loop, but had to backtrack out as it needs more snow to make it fully skiable. Stick to the open sections and you will not be disappointed. Great job to Gerry for the meticulous care, we are very fortunate to have you and the beautiful Fox trails!

Greenbush: Report by Ray Beebe on Sunday Jan 29 2017 at 10:03am
Fresh grooming plus light snow = average glide early this morning. Things are speeding up at 9:00 with more skiers showing up. Good base on all loops with a few stick chunks scattered about. Down hills have good snow cover with a few ruts. Track has not been touched up but still looks good overall.
