Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Let it snow! As we continue to receive the flakes, we will not be doing full grooming (aside from some packing loops perhaps) until the system passes through. We did do a full pack/till yesterday with the fluffy 4-5", and we are expecting more snow on top of that through today. Once the new snow gets some time to settle and bind with the old, we should have some stellar conditions! Plans are to have a full till tonight and set tracks tomorrow morning.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  It's good to see snow again! We received approximately 2" overnight into this morning, and provided some good material to refresh the system. Skate deck and tracks are set, and fairly solid. Given a couple hours, things should be very solid. It's beautiful out there and today's the day to go! We will not be re-grooming until at least Thursday depending on weather, as this extreme cold is not very kind to machinery and man alike. Get some good laps at GANC!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed all segments last night/this morning and things are in pretty good condition. When the snow is this cold it can be tricky to set up well, but the skate decks are solid and tracks are in decent shape. They are full depth along many of the sections, but in areas where coverage is thin and snow is very dense they are a little shallow. Hoping for a refresh from the projected snows on Monday! We will most likely not be grooming until then, as we probably won't be getting much traffic and the conditions will be much better. There are a few dirty patches starting to show through again on the upper loop, so keep an eye out if you're on your race skis.

Firsthand 
[ Good skis ]
  Both the skate deck and the classic tracks (skied both techniques) were firm and fast. Surprised how well it set up and at the speed of the snow. The man-made snow was mixed well with the new light and fluffy. Made for a fun ski. Always running into someone to ski with makes this a nice social skiing venue as well. The turns and transitions that weren't quite right are now completely dialed in. Erik Blow has been working hard to sculpt a world-class nordic ski experience right here in Duluth.

  Great skiing at GANC. Everything set up nice from the new snow. Perfect skate lanes and deep solid tracks. Thanks Spirit!
