Woodland Trails
Elk River, MN
Trail Length: 15km  Maps: |
Groomed: Skating/Classical    Lighted: No Snowmaking: No
Contact:     Weather: [ NWS ]  
Notes:   Maintained by Elk River Nordic Nordic Ski Club, these trails have become a hot-spot for fantastic skiing in the North Metro. Trails are largely wooded over rolling terrain, but some sections have good climbs and descents. Trails consist of several interconnected loops and are aptly named--be sure to check out the "Top-of-the-World" and "Gravity Box" as well as "Wash Pond Flats" to the NE of the biathlon range. There is not a warming shack, but at least one port-o-potty at the main parking lot. Primarily groomed for skate (not always tracked for classic).

  More fun than an old fellow should be allowed to have. I finished my afternoon lap about 4:30. For late in the day the trail was still in great shape and the ski was fast and fun. Woodlands was full of the sounds of happy skiers, just like the good old days. We would like to thank both our old and new ski friends for coming out today to join in the fun. As long as the weather cooperates there should be more great skis in our future.

Grooming

  Lumberjack and Blooming Onion just finished their evening run with the medium screens. Lumberjack reported that once again the screens worked their magic on the skate trails. This groomng pass was on top another pass with rollers last evening to further firm the base, compliments of Babe and Captain Ken. A ski at Woodlands tomorrow will not disappoint. Enjoy!

  As expected, the trails were a wee bit soft for my afternoon skate (partial) lap. Uphill's were tough for this old man, but the downhill's were a blast. Eagle 17 and Rookie Ken, rolled Wednesday evening to continue the firming up process. Enjoy!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Six plus new inches of heavier snow, rolled and ready for a nice soft ski. Ancient One and The Natural finished the toughest roll of the season about 1 this afternoon. While Ancient One's single shear pin break and five hard bumps didn't come close to breaking Shear-Pin's single run record of four sheared pins, he is hoping that getting stuck six times is at least good enough for Honorable Mention on the Grooming Cave Wall of Shame. He also gets bonus points for running the fuel tank dry this week. The outer loop is rolled with a double roller pass and everything else is rolled curb to curb. Chainsaw is out now setting some tracks for us for the first time in his 28 years of grooming. Positive comments on them only please, as we don't want to hurt his feelings. The rest of the track setters are up at the State Meet. Enjoy!

  Excellent freshly rolled trails. Kudos again to the groomers. Hardly time to firm up the skate deck between snows, haven't had that "problem" for a long time. More fun tomorrow?
