  The groomer was there so I was treated to fresh cord and firm fresh tracks! The snow pulled some weeds down so you kinda get whacked with them while skiing so just beware. It was a crisp, invigorating -4F when I started, the deciduous treetops were all glistening ice covered beauties and the pines gorgeously covered with snow.
Two things to know before you go. First, the Stewart Creek Bridge, which you have to cross to get there, is one lane due to all the snow on both sides. It is also extremely icy once you pass it so proceed with caution! The other thing is there are only two parking spots and they are where the barricades are that block Skyline. The plow only made one swipe through so there are literally no spots to park!

  Good but lots of soft spots on the main loop. Hopefully additional snow and subsequent grooming will improve it.

  Very soft snow. Crashed a few times in track due to sink holes. Lots of debris and track close to brush. It's my favorite trail in Duluth! Definitely needs time to be packed down more. Thanks to all the groomers working hard to get our trails open!

  Skied the Bardon loop. Nice firm skate deck. Very good conditions. Parking is a little limited at the trailhead because only part of the lot has been plowed.

  Appears to have been groomed this morning. Lots of snow boulders from post grooming avalanches. Classic track set far to the side and in the bushes often. Big basket ski poles helped on the deep snow side. Beautiful day to ski an awesome trail!
