  Conditions: Very nice skiing.
Skated the whole thing today and everything is in really good shape. New grooming yesterday resulted in the 5K to be in very good to excellent shape and the 10K to be good to very good. My only knocks on the 10K are the first 2-3K are a bit uneven (not due to lack of snow though) and chunky in places but with the warmer temps and more people skiing, should even out. The later part of the 10K (from Check Pulse on) is better. Got out there early under bluebird skies and almost had the place to myself. You gotta lover early spring skiing! George was all smiles watching the kids ski and setting out food for Tour DuLuth.

  Conditions: Bad, not groomed recently.
Snowflake has been great all year, but it is in tough shape right now. I think a good grooming could make a huge difference, but it hasn't been lately (maybe a week?). I skated, but the classic track looked more enjoyable. The skate deck is rock hard and rutted in many places. About 2 km of the 5k had been groomed, I assume for kidski, and was much better. Definitely needs some grooming attention, or snow!

  Conditions: Not terrible, not good.
I suppose when compared to other trails in the area, Snowflake was OK. They have pretty good snow cover. But, it had been heavily used prior to my arrival in the afternoon, making for a very rutted skate deck and a poor wiggly washed out track. It was impossible to ski relaxed. Every moment was spent rigidly controlling my skis from following some renegade rut. So, it beats skiing on a lake, and far outshines skiing on dirt, but the conditions couldn't be classified as "good.".

  Conditions: Wonderful groomed trails.
Skate skied the 5k after dark and the snow was fabulous, firm but plenty of snow for good control, reasonably fast. Thanks, George. Bring a headlamp if after dark.
