  Once again it was well worth the trip over the bridge to have a freshly groomed morning ski! The classic tracks were pristine by 11 am as well as the fresh firm cord on the skate deck! Huge thank you to those hard working groomers for making it so perfect so quickly after a snow! Seven day a week grooming is awesome! I skied the red and green today.

  I was shocked to see an 8 without a negative sign in front of it this morning. Knowing the forecast I took advantage ang headed across the bridge for Sup- town. As usual the groomers were out. But, alas, they had yet to set a track. I broke trail for an hour or so was going to leave. But when I got back to the car... new track! So I did a few more K. Was it cold? Nope. Was it a solid track? Nope... but I bet it is now.

  I had to post again about the great conditions at SMF. Once again, fresh grooming on all trails. It was a bit slow for skate but what do you expect at 5 degrees. The best trail, yellow, has firmed up and is in excellent condition. Hiker and fatbike tracks on the Blue but no significant trail damage (please, at least stay to the side of the trail)-- I do miss the hills on the old Blue. Again, thank you so much SMF trail crew for all your work on these awesome trails. Please, please, please support this gem of the Twin Ports.

  Driving across the bridge to Superior is always worth it with the seven day a week grooming, it is a daily treat! We classic skied and one skate skied the red and green today. The fresh beautiful cord crafted by the talented groomers along with the firm deep classic tracks were perfect! This week the trails are free to ski on...however, purchasing a pass is inexpensive and worth every penny! Plenty of out of the wind trails to explore during the deep freeze too!

  Conditions at SMF are wonderful - smooth, freshly groomed. They did not get as much snow as Duluth (I would estimate about 3" over a hard base). As usual, it was perfectly groomed. A tad slow for skate but not as bad as I thought it would be. The red and green are a little firmer and faster (have seen more traffic). Blue, purple and yellow are a little softer. Coverage is excellent except for a couple small avoidable thin/dirty areas, mainly on the new purple connector (love it by the way--not having to use the snowmobile trail to get to the yellow trail is a great addition and, bonus, it adds a few K onto the whole loop). Kudos to Superior for adding this trail connector. Skiing over there is free this week but I encourage everyone to support this great, well maintained and scenic trail and buy a season pass and get out there!
