  Conditions: Still all white and good for skating.
The manmade course is in good shape. Not as well set up today so things were sugary in the morning. Not such an issue for skate but made classic a challenge. Track was crumbing and the snowpack would shear under the force of kicking. Lots of people out enjoying the great course on a beautiful day. Very thankful for an artificial snow loop in the city.

  Conditions: Sugary/icy but fast!
Skied 20k on the manmade loop at 6pm. Overly sugary only on the uphill by the 9 hole course, otherwise good on the rest. A bit icy on the downhills. Very fast overall.

  Conditions: Perfect skiin on manmade loop continues.
Grooming was outstanding for the citizen junior and college racing this weekend. Saturday had chiseled classic tracks set up firm when people showed up at 6 am. These ran 3 and 4 abreast up all but the two herring bone hills. Perfectly done. Sunday had full width skate deck of compressed firm corn. This held up very very well to a full day of racing. Looks like there should be plenty of snow to get through this warm week.

  Conditions: Excellent even at 39 degrees!
Skied the man made loop around 1 PM and the classic tracks were in great shape. Lots of high school and college teams skiing in preparation for the races this weekend. The Wirth groomers have done a great job during all the temperature fluctuations this Winter.

  Conditions: Perfect for skate and classic on the snowmaking loop.
The full manmade loop is now in perfect shape. Wide, deep, very clean, and no ice. There are some noticeable grooming improvements over previous years. The snow depth is excellent throughout with none of the thin spots and no dirty areas then have been present in the past. The skate deck is setting up properly so it doesn't turn to loose sugar over scraped ice. That is a clear improvement. The right hand downhill hairpin turn on top of the hill where people used to wipeout in races is now fully banked so it is easy and safe to take at speed. The terrain is the same as always - very very hilly. This is the best place in the Metro to Train for the Birkie because of the steep sustained climbs. Nice work wirth crew!
