  Conditions: Not freshly groomed but has been previously rolled, some windblown, lots of previous days ski tracks, some walkers.
Best glide skating on opening day in years! Temp perfect, a bit windy. Skied front 9 between 11-noon.

Grooming Scheduling 
  Snowmaking to start this week! As Theodore Wirth was operating as golf course until Nov 9th, ground preparations for winter activities could not begin until Nov 10th. Most of the preparations will be completed by Wednesday, Nov 19 when snowmaking is scheduled to begin. Thanks for your patience. It's going to be a great year!

Firsthand Crime 
  Conditions: Slow, cold, well-covered.
Trails are well-covered although a bit rutted. Cold on Sunday morning at 9 degrees! I saw too late the notice to stay off until trails are groomed, although I'm wondering why the snow guns have not been going already here.
On a sadder note, two vehicles were broken into at the par 3 parking lot (windows smashed) on Sunday morning at about 8:45 am. Another reminder to bring all valuables with you when you leave your car.

  Skied from Wirth Beach through Eloise Butler and Quaking Bog area then east side of the lake. Not groomed but no bare spots and packed from skiers in most places. Five miles of skate trail in Nov is is pretty good.

Grooming Scheduling 
  Please stay off the Wirth golf course. The trails at Wirth are not yet open for the season. When you ski on the golf course turf, particularly the greens, you are damaging and killing the turf with ice build up. Please stay off the course until trails are groomed so we can direct you where to go. We plan to start snowmaking operations at Wirth this coming week.
