  Conditions: Skiable fresh snow.
I kicked around a bit on both sides of the golfcourse. Was better than sitting inside. If you invested in zeros you could collect dividends tonight; wet snow at 32 degrees made waxing tricky. I settled for lots of kick and no glide. No grooming of course, but the lights are still on around the snowmaking loop.

  Conditions: The crust was just hard enough this morning.
A handful of other folks out there enjoying the morning sunshine. This looks to be the last crust ski of the year at Wirth as it might not freeze tonight.

  Conditions: Dirty corn snow.
The artificial snow loop is still skiable as a loop. No longer being groomed. Watch out for the piles of snow pushed by the Pisten Bully as they try to expedite the arrival of golf season.

  Conditions: Some slush, some dirt, but above all fun.
Skied the snowmaking loop at Wirth 11 a.m. Sunday, 55 degrees, with my two boys on the last day before Wirth plows out. Tshirts and shorts, non-soupy corn snow with liberal dustings of dirt and chopped pine needles -- got all the wax out. But mostly a delightful way to cap a great winter of XC in the MN Metro. Hats off to the Wirth groomers and staff!

  Conditions: Icy, hard, fast.
Just wanted to thank everyone for their comments this winter. With the cold conditions this last week we continued to groom the man made loop.
Grooming plans: With Thursday's rain and the warm conditions forecast over the weekend we will be done grooming for the season. We will be leaving the trail intact over the weekend but starting Monday we will be pushing out the large piles from snowmaking to help the melting process for the golf season. We hope you had a great ski season. Thanks again.
