  Skied all south wirth trails Monday night. Great shape for march. The worst ice was on the Erickson trail.

  I skied Eloise Butler and Quaking Bog sections this afternoon, and trails are in very good condition. South facing hills are getting to be a bit sun affected, but otherwise it generally seemed like nice mid winter snow. Much nicer than yesterday afternoon when it got super soft when it warmed up.

  Mint conditions this sunny Monday morning at South Wirth! The overnight grooming set up perfectly south of Glenwood Avenue (Picnic Pavilion Loop, Anwatin Loop, Wedding Hill, Erickson Loop, Quaking Bog Trail, Norm Oakvik Trail, 394 Connector, Brownie Lake) and all of these loops were the cleanest and best overall conditions of the season for skating. (No classic tracks as of this morning, however.) Also, the trail sections next to Wirth Parkway are nice and clean, so you can use your best skis, no problem. Even the 394 overpass was suitable for good skis. The trails north of Glenwood (Jar Hill, Wirth Lake, JD Rivers) are much softer and contain classic tracks. Unbelievably amazing skiing in the woods at South Wirth - thanks to the groomers who have spent so many hours keeping these trails in mint condition.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I groomed Bog Butler and Brownie for skating tonight. Did not set classic track because of time constraints. All the lumps that formed today are smoothed out.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  I rolled Eloise Butler, Quaking Bog, and Brownie Lake this morning. It's on the soft side, although I suspect it will set up nicely. Be prepared to see some downed branches as the increasing wind hits the heavy, snow laden trees. Go enjoy it while it lasts!
