University Ridge Golf Course Report

No Go No Go
yesterday (Tue. Feb. 18)
The snow was just too heavy this morning to get our equipment through it so trails will be closed today. We shouldn't have a problem after tonight's low temps to get out early tomorrow morning to roll (7-10am) then groom (10am-2pm). We anticipate our open hours to be noon-5pm for both skate and classic.

What a beautiful day to ski. Zimmer was freshly groomed and lots of fun. The grooming here has been consistent and is really appreciated.

Zimmer course was excellent. Yellow & blue loops good with a few thin spots. Most areas groomed this morning with at least one pass. Thanks U Ridge staff!

Overall really nice skiing today; I expect skiing will be great tomorrow too. A couple of the usual spots to avoid (headed down along driveway... almost to the top of the joint climb back to parking lot... though the farm field section down toward M seemed fully covered) and some drifting which mostly didn't affect the skating. Thanks to whoever covered the road crossing in snow, you can do the three loops (total about 12k) without taking off your skis.

A lot of blown-in tracks, and some leaf litter. Could use a regroom, if the wind is going to let up. Otherwise, not bad, just take it easy and enjoy the ski! Skate lanes looked pretty good.

Amazing!! Perfect new corduroy in the skate lines and firm, chiseled edges in classic tracks. Many thanks to Ryan and other groomers who have kept University Ridge in top condition through very challenging temperatures.

Disregard my post for University Ridge - it should have been for Pleasant View Golf Course.

Trails were rolled and partially groomed today before equipment issues arose and grooming had to stop. No classic track has been set due to lack of adequate base. Trails are open for use however.

Yellow loop was good with a few thin/bare spots. Zimmer loop was excellent and a pleasure to ski. Didn't have time to ski the Blue loop. All was groomed this morning. Need to ski here more often, as it is definitely the most frequently groomed trail system in Madison. Thanks U Ridge staff/groomers.

Confirming previous reports. Skied Red and Blue - both in really good shape as of noon. Clouds arrived just in time and things were holding up very well despite rising temps. Classic tracks appeared very good also.
