Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed ]
  Como's Nordic trails have been closed for a couple of weeks now due to lack of snow. We've held off on starting critical tree removals in the hopes that more snow would come, but now we cannot wait any longer and need to begin removing the 175 affected trees before the ground thaws completely. Work will begin this week on the north half of the course and next week on the south half. All the work is weather dependent and will take at least two weeks. We will post an update if we are able to groom the trail again with fresh snow and cold temps after the tree work is complete, but Como is likely closed for the season. Currently it is unsafe and unwise to try skiing at Como, please go elsewhere. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  Due to the warm temperatures and rain Como ski trail will be closed until further notice. There's a combination of bare ground, standing water, and ice all along the course making it unskiable. Please go elsewhere to ski until we get new snow and cold temperatures. We will post an update once conditions improves and the trails are open again.

  Fine morning for a couple of laps for an early lunch. Some lingering fog in the air, the sun working on burning that off. A bit crusty yet, but the timing was good as the skate lane was starting to loosen up ever so slightly. Fast down the hills, quick steps around the hairpins, easy glide, light touch over the ruts. Lovely morning. How did it get to be the middle of March already?

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  The thaw is taking away the base very quickly. Melt will continue for at least the next week unless it drops below freezing at night. If it does refreeze it will be icey and rutted. We do not have enough to groom as some bare spots are already showing and growing each day. If you need groomed trails you may have to head to one of the manmade loops in the area. Otherwise keep an eye out for rocks and ruts and Como may work for you for a couple more days. We will not groom until we get more snow and temperatures are holding below freezing. We will post once the trails are officially closed or if conditions improve.

  Very nice skating before noon - a little powder on top of a firm deck. Met Roy Carlsted skiing with his hairies and and he gave the classic good marks. Sadly, this isn't going to last long.
