The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has launched a trail conditions page for its cross-country ski trails around the state.
The page includes the current condition of trails from poor to excellent, as well as information on the last time they were groomed and tracked.
The website is sortable by location and conditions and also features a snow depth map for Wisconsin.
Some state properties post their trail condition on their own pages, and some areas, like the Kettle Moraine State Forest-Southern Unit, have hotlines (262-594-6202).
Many skiers also use Skinnyski.com to check and post conditions at state and local trails.
Travel Wisconsin, from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, also has a snow conditions report, with observers around the state providing information on downhill-ski cross-country ski and snowmobile trails.
As of Feb. 1, roughly the northern half of Wisconsin had snow on the ground. According to the DNR's report, ski conditions were excellent at four properties: Hoffman Hills State Recreation Area, Flambeau River State Forest, Pattison State Park and Copper Falls State Park. In southeastern Wisconsin, conditions were good at Lapham Peak, where the man-made snow loop was groomed and a new track was set on Jan. 31, with plans to resume snowmaking on Feb. 2.
