  Great spring skiing! The grooming was World Cup quality and the classic track has been moved to the left side for better flow. Get out and try it after this next storm. Spirit is usually groomed first!

  Jody Ream and I set a new classic track line this morning. We moved it to the left side for most of the climb and half of the return back down to the stadium. This approach achieves a continuous track on the climb and the skate line feels good as well. I skied a couple loops in each technique and skied all the cutoff to see if how much the track would be impacted. With so little cutoff usage I think having to cross a track shouldn't be a problem or damage the track too much and you gain a nice continuous climbing track. Go out and stride or skate it and let us know what you all think.

  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.
