  About 2/3 of the trails were groomed with track set. There were some boot marks and a few places where the tracks had collapsed, but definitely worth the drive from St. Paul.

  I went on my first classic ski of the season at Sunfish. They hadn't groomed yet after the snow, but it was still a great ski. The snow was deep, probably had 3-4 inches, but I just followed the tracks that someone else had created the day before. It looks like they don't groom the most southern blue square trail, but all the rest will probably be groomed soon. Saw three other skiers out. What a great day to be in Minnesota!

  Groomers were out in the past 24 hours and groomed about 70% of the Sunfish trails. Groomed for both skate and classic. Sunfish is always a gem when we have a thaw since it is all in the woods and shaded. Always expect some walkers at Sunfish, though. Get yourself down the hill from the parking lot and you will find the groomed trails. Thank you to the groomers and Lake Elmo!

  Freshly groomed, track set on most of the trail, oddly missing in others. Hikers and dog walkers out en masse but mostly managing to not trample on the track. Classic skiing was great, with the hikers and soft snow I wouldn't bother trying to skate.

  My husband and I skate skied Sunfish Lake Park yesterday. It was actually really nice! The coverage was surprisingly good, there were only a few leaves and sticks to avoid. The fresh layer of powder on top of the groomed snow was really fast too. The only negative was that some of the spots going uphill were a little too narrow for a full skate stride, but it was well worth the trip out.
