  Tracks and skate lane in good shape. They are doing heavy duty buckthorn removal, but just close to the trailhead so impact is minimal. The short hill loop and the connector for the shortest loop are closed. There is one, possibly two short crossings near the end where you will need to take off your skis and cross the equipment access path. But I did not think the conditions were as bad as an earlier reviewer. Rest of the system is just fine. The usual scattering of oak leaves (they do call the place "Terrace Oaks" after all). No walker damage in the skate lane yet. Saw what may have been coyote tracks, scat and squirrel parts/fur where the loops split about halfway through.

  Don't waste your time skiing at Terrace, unless you are ready to walk some sections. Heavy logging by the City of Burnsville. Unless we get huge snow, continuous skiing of the full loops will be impossible this season.

  I skated a quick outer lap before dark. The groomer had rolled / packed today's newly fallen snow. Skier set tracks were apparent here and there. Still very soft until they can accomplish the next grooming step, and let it set up. There is significant tree debris in a spot along the first downhill from the trailhead, and again just before the final climb. Lots and lots of snow! Should be excellent once the grooming is complete. Note - the final uphill loop was closed today due to tree work. The cutoff trail is groomed to bring you back up to the trailhead. The short easy loop is still closed.

  The 4.7km and 5.2km loops were groomed but the skate deck was very soft given the latest round of snow on Sunday morning/afternoon. The groomer left a ridge in the middle of the trail for most of the outer 5.7km loop, adding an unanticipated challenge. The short 1.1km loop is still closed due to tree removal. Gorgeous ski through the woods with all of the new snow but prepare for a slow ski until the groomers can pack down the snow a bit more.

  Excellent for skate and classic. The chalet was open. Skied the outer and inner loops. Tracks were really fast. Skate deck a bit soft on one side but overall fantastic. Coaches who huddle with their squads between intervals, off the trail, are to be admired.
