Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Last night and this morning we groomed the skate deck and set classic track from OO to the American Birkebeiner TH (start area) on the Birkie Skate trail (including the Birkie Ridge trail connector). After the recent snow, much of the trail is groomed and tracked again. The trail keeps improving with every new snowfall!

  Skied from Duffy Rd (edge of lake Hayward) to Mosquito Brook. Fresh snow, Fred grooming! Temps in the teens so the snow seemed fast! Trail in great condition. Base still not super thick, but flat and nice currently.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We received another inch of snow today and for those skiers making it a long weekend, we will groom and track the loops at OO tonight. Birkie Tour was yesterday so the Skate and Classic trails north of OO were heavily skied today and will have a little powder on top for skiing tomorrow....likely very good skiing as well. Enjoy!

  Very good for skating. On my way out of town I took the opportunity to ski the South end of the trail for the first time this season starting at Mosquito Brook and going to Hwy 77 and back. The skate deck is very firm and well skied in. Classic tracks to the extent that I used them were full depth and solid. The trail is definitely a little thinner south than on the North end but still excellent skiing.

  Fantastic for skate and classic. Minus 10 when me and Skervald started so glide was just a rumor but the trails were freshly groomed, level and firm. After last night's deep freeze, the classic tracks are like rails. We skied from the Power Lines to the Fire Tower water stop to watch the Seeley Classic leaders come through then back on classic trail. Trails were beautiful everywhere we went. There were fires going in the two warming buildings we passed so there were places along the way to get warm if need be. Pretty tough to beat even with the cold.
