Iola has the closest skiing now, and, boy, is it great. I started just before 11 and it was lightening fast with totally safe downhills. I was skating, but classic tracks were intact throughout. The skating was 95% excellent and 5% good. There are some icy/slushy patches depending on the time of day you hit them, but they're all easy to see. Plenty of snow, great grooming.

I agree with sentiments expressed here. Sunday mid afternoon conditions were great all things considered. Few bare spots, but avoidable. Fast and fun conditions. Thanks again to groomers and all involved for a great year!

Skied every loop except the pink. Groomer did a great job knocking down the ruts that were there the day before. There's lots of ice but grooming put grooves in it that gives your skis something to grip. The snow that remains is fast. A small number of bare patches are not a problem to avoid with one gap in coverage on the green trail at the lower power line crossing. With the cold temps forecast, these conditions should last awhile. This is fun skiing, enjoy it while it's here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2L5fUllQNk4

Thanks groomers for an excellent season! I had some of my best days skiing because of your efforts. Also, much thanks to Friends of LP, volunteers, and all those involved in snowmaking. The progress made has been amazing and the skiing just keeps getting better each year.

Good to very good conditions. The very fast icy base called for helmet wearing conditions. Fast, controllable & fun. Thanks for posting the url of the video. It provides excellent insight into actual conditions.

Still a full base remains with small scattered bare spots easily to get around. Right now its about 50/50 icy vs corn snow. Need colder temps and a couple of inches of snow for good skiing.

We have ceased grooming at Zillmer for the season, hikers are allowed to be on the Zillmer trails at this time. Hope all enjoyed the ski season.
