  Only had time for 3K on Lester Park trail (off Lester River Rd) this morning which was in the process of being groomed. Floating along the freshly laid classic track was heavenly. Approx 18 degree temp at the time was perfect.

  Six or seven inches of fresh snow, freshly groomed. A bit soft, as you might expect, but overall in tiptop shape.

  Absolutely incredible. Full coverage, firm, level. Full credit to DXC for maintaining and grooming [ Lester Park is groomed by the City of Duluth, not DXC. -- Ed. ]. Undoubtedly the prettiest ski of my winter. Easily 100x better than sitting in my downtown Minneapolis office.

  If I had my choice of Duluth location for classic skiing today, it would probably be Lester Park. The tracks are deep, crisp, and not at all icy, the snow is forgiving and not aggressive, and there's pretty much nothing in the tracks (no leaves or sticks or bark). With all this base snow, there's really no unevenness - the downhills are just a beautiful glide. The skate deck is getting a bit bald particularly on the lower parts of the trail. Nothing bad like in low snow years, but I couldn't fully glide out relaxed in flats/gradual downhill areas. Just not as nice as the classic track. I did not ski the bottom-most hill section into the base of Lester Park by the playground - that could potentially be dirtier.

  Given all the snow we've had recently, it is not surprising that conditions are excellent. Get out and enjoy it.
