  I was finally able to ski at Superior today and arrived about 11:30am with a 0 degree reading. The first thing I did was sign up for my season pass. At $30 it is probably the best value around. There is nearly daily grooming and today didn't disappoint. My skis were freshly waxed with LF5 on the right ski and CH4 on the left ski. Just an experiment to see if there was a difference. Starting out at the 28th Street lot I hit the Green back to the back parking lot. It was freshly groomed and I was the first skater on the deck. It was excellent. The base was rock hard with about 1" or slightly more of fresh groomed cord. I crossed over and started on the Yellow to do a lap on Brown's point. I could tell this was groomed yesterday and catching edge was still possible. The hill side of the Yellow had a lot of debris and could use a couple more inches of snow. The flat return side was very nice and fast. I took the new Purple back after completing the Brown's point loop. The new Purple could also use more snow as there was debris on the deck. I got back to the Green and followed it back to the Red. All this was freshly groomed and great. I returned back on the short segment of the Green where I started and all I saw was my tracks going out. It felt like I was alone and I guess I was. Oh yeah, no difference between the LF5 and CH4. The temp when I ended was 3 degree. The cold froze my phone so I couldn't take any pictures to share. Thanks groomers and for all that haven't been to Superior I would highly recommend it.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  The groomer reports the red trail is icy, other trails are a bit better. Scattered tree litter on trails. Track is now set on all trails. In conjunction with the Lake Superior Ice Festival January 25 -27th, the community will be able to access all City of Superior cross country ski trails at no cost the week of January 21st - January 27th. Passes will not be required or checked during this time and we encourage the public to get out and enjoy and explore the trails.

  Wow. What a great ski! I had an urge to ski for a long time nice and easy. What's the perfect remedy for that? The Sup-Town Muni Trails of course. I arrived at 8:30 a.m. and the groomers were already out. While some of the trails, especially the ones nearest the 27th Avenue parking lot, where absolute perfection. Some of them were covered with a lot of organic detritus. Thus the recommendation of B skis. Overall it was a spectacular ski. Everything is groomed including all of the cut arounds for the hills adding on a few extra k. Also the new purple trail that saves you from having to ski on the snowmobile trail! That's pretty awesome. Was it perfect? Nope. Was it a little sketchy? Yep. Was it awesome? Absolutely!

  Kudos to those hard working groomers who take the machine out seven days a week! We had a perfect skate deck and impeccable tracks on the yellow trail for our group of 6 year olds to 60 somethings! I highly recommend getting out to the Superior Municipal Forest trails! Where else can you get 7 day a week grooming, with the variety of terrain in the area?

  All trails were groomed today. The skate deck is in great shape, other than a few icy spots throughout the forest.
