  Beautiful conditions, groomed all the trails and reset the track on the Main trail and the River trail. No shortage of snow!

  Skied this afternoon and the trails were great for a final Birkie practice session. Races were just finishing up, which I suspect led to a modified classic course for today - the last section of the main 5k loop past the orchard to the high point and the return adjacent to the River trail and Herringbone didn't have classic tracks. I was able to easily get to the "high point" with the tracks and the track was groomed to follow the return through the field to bypass the Herringbone. There are several spots on the outside of the classic track with soft snow making pole plants difficult. The skate deck was a little slower on the downhills that it had been a couple weeks ago, but really cannot complain with the conditions after all the snow we've had in the last couple of weeks.

  12+" new snow and still snowing as of 4PM. We have been packing all major trails. Conditions are extremely soft for skate skiing but if you like to classic without a track conditions are "interesting". We will continue to pack tomorrow.

  Great early morning for a ski. Lots of powdery snow on the main 5k loop and side trails. Not groomed after yesterday's snowfall, but enough of a track for classic. Looked like plenty of skiers were out enjoying it this past weekend.

  Wide, smooth and well packed deck, thanks to the amazing work by the grooming crew! It was especially enjoyable with the wide trails taking me through the woods, up the hills, down the valleys, taking in the amazing view. Though not personally used, the classic tracks appeared well set throughout the entire trail system. This is the best condition I've skied at Saint Mary's, definitely worth the drive to Winona! Enjoy it while it lasts.
