  Skied upper trail and it was rolled all the way up the bluff but the rest of the trail was ungroomed powder. Paradise for a snow starved Minneapolis skier. Good coverage but a few specks of dirt by 1pm.

  Good foot of powder. Beautifully white. Very soft yet. Golf course has been rolled at least a couple times. Black, wooded trails looked like they were rolled mid-storm. I turned around after a few hundred yards into the forest. If you have a choice, wait until Sunday for things to firm up.

  Poor to good on lower section (golf course); two high school meets this past week left the trail packed hard; still icy in low spots. Very good for skating on bluff trail: firm, fast and fun; classic tracks looked good.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Golf course loops: poor to good; icy in the many low spots; good snow on the catwalk section
Bluff trail: very good to excellent; Skate lane is in great shape and the classic tracks were deep and firm; several connecting loops have been added this year so one may opt to ski just the edges of the three prairie sections or head into the more challenging wooded perimeter trails.
