  Beautiful snow this morning, with temps dipping just below freezing last night the snow was able to settle a bit to provide yet another good base. Classic tracks have been refreshed and should be set up nicely. All trails have had the skate deck groomed, and classic tracks are only set on the main 1k loop.

  Skate deck has been refreshed this morning, left the classic tracks alone due to the warmer temps projected and they have seen little use so they are solid. Expect the skate deck to be a little soft today, temperatures will rise and stay high, but it should provide just enough "give" for great skiing! Stadium area has a few passes, but most is untouched from yesterday. It has been skied in but is nice and firm.

Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Trail was perfect and fast. The upper Kilometer doesn't have tracks. The full trail skates really well. Nice sustained climb with a flowy upper trail followed by a fast downhill. The Spirit Mt crew is dialing it in. And the sunset, city, and river views are gorgeous from the upper trail.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  We're open for business again after yesterday's race! Classic tracks are in and all skate decks on the main 1k loop have been groomed. The outer loops are open to ski, but are not tracked. There is still some final leveling work to do but it is fully skiable! Please take caution as there are some ice patches on the outer loop to lookout for.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Our upper loops have been pushed out and groomed, and are in fair to good condition. Some more fine tuning is needed and there is some ice showing, so please take caution if you are venturing up there. We are having our inaugural race today, with many high schools from all over the state coming to christen the system! Trails will be closed for most of the morning and afternoon, so if you are planning on coming to ski you should consider visiting some of the other fine trails in the city that are open now!
