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).

  I hit the trail at about 10:30 this morning. There were 25 cars in the lot and the trails were full of happy skiers. Kind of like the good old days. Except for a few short stretches where the snow has begun to burn off of the icy base, ski conditions were comfortable, fast and fun. This is the first time in the last 4 ski seasons that we have strung together 4 days of both favorable snow and weather conditions at the same time. We would like to thank all of our new and old ski friends who came to Woodlands for their Saturday ski. You are the reason we do what we do. It is a couple degrees too warm for grooming this evening. Chainsaw and Ancient One will be out at first light in the morning to buff the trail for your Sunday ski. Like today, the best skiing should be early. Enjoy it while it lasts.

  I was out at 7:00 AM everything was just as Dave advertized. Excellent skiing and good coverage. Only a couple icy spots from the overnight refreeze. So pack the wife and kids pack a lunch and spend a day at the trails.

  Excellent conditions. 36 degrees and sunny. Phenomenal grooming. 100% coverage, little ice, no slush. Little corn snow either. I used FastWax Yellow LF. Work kept me from getting out early enough to catch the fast snow. But the further I got in, the deeper the shade, the faster the snow got. Things ran reasonably fast from X2 on. The climbs were killers but I felt pretty good doing everything except Wash Pond Flats on the east side with a return via Poplar Loop and South Crossing in an hour and 15 minutes.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Pack up the babies and grab(bring) the old ladies. Dizzie Dean just reported in that he and Theodore(think leave it to Beaver) have just finished their evening grooming run with the tandem screens to polish up the skate deck. We are expecting fine conditions for our Saturday morning ski. Enjoy!
