Firsthand 
  Conditions: Crusty snow on groomed track, deep crust on ungroomed.
Hit Phalen tonight about 8PM. Much better than I expected. Yes, there are bare spots but easily skied around. Temp must have been around 30 degrees. I could get a good skate off. The classic track for the 7 K loop is maybe 70% intact. Not a bad ski if you can't get to Hyland or Elm Creek. Plenty of snow on the fairways to make your own track.

  Conditions: Nope! Best to stay away.
Call it gone for the time being. Numerous open spots. Lots of little paw prints seemed to hasten its demise.

Grooming 
  It's a great new 5k course. People from Endurance United and the City of Saint Paul spent hours today shoveling and moving snow to the thinner locations. It is being left to set for tomorrows King Boreas races. The new 5k course will be marked in the morning and known thin spots will be marked with spray paint and cones tomorrow morning.

Firsthand 
  Conditions: Mostly well covered, just a few thin spots. Newly groomed sections were a bit soft.
Skied around 10 am this morning. Did the original layout first lap, then did the new race course layout for the remaining laps. The race course layout measured out very close to 5K, and has better snow coverage than the original course. It cuts off about one third of Phalen, the SE section. The old (very old) start area, to the south of the clubhouse, was being groomed out like a possible stadium. The new cut sections were a bit soft, but skied better with each lap (groomer has out packing it too). A couple of very thin areas, mainly at the top of hills and usually just golf course grass underneath. Could feel asphalt/gravel paths with the pole tips in a few places, but in general it seems like at least B ski conditions (maybe even better if they shovel).

Grooming 
  Conditions: Good. New course is enjoyable.
The new course at Phalen Golf Course is up and running! People have tested the course and reports are good that they enjoy the new 5k loop. It is looking good for the King Boreas races this Saturday. Shoveling party Friday morning at 9 am - please come join us!
