  A bunch of us enjoyed the trails at Jay Cooke today! Tracks appeared to be pretty freshly groomed. Unfortunately someone skated the whole trail we were on and it's just a classic trail so they cut into the tracks. Some deer tracks and tree debris also littered the tracks, but the trails were still awesome! Watch out for giant blobs of falling snow coming off the trees, I just missed getting hit by a big one!

  I did the oak trail for the first time - it was beautiful! Followed the advice to park on Palkie Road. There were some oak leaves on the trail and in the tracks, but otherwise very good condition, freshly groomed with a light dusting of snow on top.

  The Oak and Triangle Trails on the far northeastern corner of the park had a few inches of fresh snow on top of groomed double set of tracks in great shape. We were the first and maybe the only skiers in there today. The Oak and Triangle loops were lovely, however using the snowmobile trail to connect them was a bummer, since snowmobiles had run over most of the groomed tracks. Just skied the Upper Triangle trail and skipped the Lower Triangle trail. Both Upper and Lower had been groomed. Use the informal parking lot at the end of Palkie Road for direct access.

  Skied Classic. Only the trail North of 210 were open. Trails are in excellent condition. According to ranger they are going to start grooming trail south of the swing bridge tomorrow.
