Ski trail and snow conditions are poor.  There are a few bare spots and the groomed trail is non-existent.  Leaves and twigs have fallen on trail—-sticks to ski wax.

Trails are slippery and muddy.  Pileated Woodpecker is still hanging around.  Boardwalks are very slippery—be careful.  There is wet mud and water on top of frozen ground in some areas.

Trails are snow covered and icy in spots.   A couple skiers went through, but trails are not groomed for skiing yet.  Walkers may use the trails until they are groomed.
