  Trail was mostly pretty good, classic tracks are now set on all the useful climbs, track could be omitted on the sharp 90 turn at the NW corner of the clubhouse (the turn would be tight on the flat but no one will stay in the tracks there coming off the hill). There is a spot with very heavy leaves along Lexington - worst in the track but easy to step around. There is a very thin and icy stretch at the top of the ridge going back toward the bowl; and the is a big area of bare pavement coming back from the bowl just before the last steep drop coming back to the flats - be very careful in the area, especially at night - go around the trees. The rest is quite nice.

  Feeling frustrated that no one has submitted a report on Como lately, and not wanting to invest in a trip there only to be frustrated, I decided to run over there this evening. (The old trolley track that dissects Como Park is a favorite for winter trail running as are the trails parallel to Hamline!) There were only two cars in the parking lot at 8:30 p.m., and one lonely skier on the course. But he reported very good conditions. The only problem spot, he said, was usual one, the steep downhill by the downhill ski slope which has a couple of bare spots. So I plan to go there tomorrow. I would have then checked out the U of M golf course, but an hour of running through deep snow or on icy sidewalks was enough.

  Trail was regroomed this morning and tracked as much as possible. After a couple of warm days there are more thin spots and some of them are on cart paths so be careful please. We'll take a couple days off so that this base hopefully lasts through the weekend.

  By the time that I was able to ski this evening Como has certainly been well loved. The easy loop by the zoo was in better shape than the north loop but both sides had seen lots and lots of use today. The classic tracks were bare in spots and icy in others with a few washouts and widening of the track as should be expected from heavy use. The skate deck was icy in spots as well (especially on corners)but, in general looked to be in better shape than the classic tracks. It is great to see this resource get used but that use made skiing challenging tonight.
