  Conditions: Last day for skiing!
With deteriorating conditions and more warm weather on the way we have decided to close the trails for the season. We will begin pushing out piles of snow Wednesday, March 8th, to get ready for the golf season. Thanks for all of the great comments throughout the season. Thanks again from the grooming crew!

  Conditions: Super fast. Great snow coverage.
Wow! What a trail! This was my first time skiing on the man-made loop. The course was busy with lots of athletes and coaches testing the conditions, plus... plenty of kids participating in a youth ski club. They were really pushing themselves. The trail was hard packed and fast, but with ample snow coverage. I can't get over how many hills and corners they've jammed into such a small area, but it doesn't feel crowded. I felt like I was skiing on a formula one race course. Although the descents are fast and the corners sharp, it wasn't too icy; there was enough soft snow to set and edge or step turn around a corner. The racers should love it.

  Conditions: Freshly groomed in morning. Powered, but not (yet) icy.
I was pleasantly surprised to park near the Chalet and find the Piston Bully at work. I waited a bit to give it a head start, and was surprised at how nice the conditions were. There were a few skaters as well as a couple of classic skiers out. The snow did get a bit powdery, and I had to pay attention on the hills lest my skis get caught in some of the ruts. But compared to icy, slippery conditions, this was a great surprise for March 1!

Observation 
  Trail conditions look great! With lower temps in play, the grooming allowed fresh tracks and clean corduroy. I just walked around the man-made loop, but it's a firm deck and looks super fast. The course is still very deep in most places, so weekend racing should be set. Enjoy the grooming while it's here!

Grooming Scheduling 
  There will be plenty of snow on the trails for the MN State Pursuit. Groomers are not sure at this time if or how much they will be able to groom, it will depend on if the temps drop and when.
