  Things are looking good here for the Tour DuLuth festival today! A couple inches of fresh snow last night have been mixed in and the trails are quite firm after the cold last night. Come on out and enjoy the festivities, free demos and enjoy this bluebird day!

  Excellent, groomed 2.5k loop. Hard pack and fast. Classic tracks set. But be sure to bring your headlamp! These trails are dark, save for the beautiful star-lit sky!

  All loops have been groomed last night/this morning with full skate deck and classic tracks. Conditions are quite firm with the below zero temps overnight but excellent overall. I would suspect that once we get into the positive temperatures skiing will be excellent! We are back to 4 tracks wide in the stadium as well.

  After the big snow yesterday I wanted to check out the conditions at Grand Avenue Nordic. I was looking for great classic tracks and a chance to ski the upper half of the trail. Great classic tracks are exactly what I found. With the VR40 I had excellent kick and nice glide. After I got up out of the stadium I "stayed up on top" of the course and did 1k loops. The course is technical but flows really well. The width of the trail makes it very easy to choose a fast line down the hill or check your speed with a snow plow and take the corners at an easy pace. I am still impressed with the skill that it took to layout the trail and build this wonderful addition to Duluth trail system. Thanks as well for the great grooming Eric!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We have managed to keep most of the snow we received yesterday on trail and trails should set up well over the day. Overall we have about 7-8" of fresh fluff packed onto the base, so skate deck will be a little soft and tracksare probably sitting at a medium hardness. The trails are beautiful however, and the weather is very cooperative so come out for a couple kilometers!
