Trails were not groomed during my ski but still very good conditions. Groomer was out right as I was leaving. Get out and enjoy, it's as good as it's been this season.

Trails not groomed as of about 11 am but the classic tracks were still very good except for the expected washed out corners. Beautiful ski day.

Beautiful conditions at Highland this morning: fresh grooming and tracks. They've added a new extension toward the high school that probably adds a half K for a total of 4. They've also made some small adjustments to some problem places on the course. Very nice!

What a glorious day! There were at least 30 others enjoying the weather this afternoon. The classic tracks have a little side-to-side play where the snow didn’t settle, but deep tracks made for a smooth ride. Good luck staying in the tracks down the big hill!

Lots of families out enjoying the snow. Overall skiing excellent. Tracks were well-defined, albeit a bit slow with the new snow. Skating deck was likewise firm with a fluffy top. There's a new segment on the second hole, a left fork that takes you to Snelling and through the high school athletic fields. Adds about a kilometer to the loop.

Saw the groomer finishing as I arrived at 2 pm. Thank you groomers for packing and tracking before the winds could blow away the snow on this exposed trail. Good coverage throughout. I was on B skis, but would have been fine on A skis. The tracks were blown in on most sections, but a steady stream of skiers kept resetting the tracks making it easy to follow during the daylight.

Recently groomed. They must have trucked in some snow from Canada or something because there were no bare or icy spots. Conditions excellent. Tracks were fast and firm, but not too deep. A few pesky leaves were the only minor problem. Skating deck was fast, too, as evidenced by all the HP Nordic team members who flew by me.

Nice morning ski. Hasn't been groomed for awhile so trailed is well worn. Hopefully a groomer can get out soon.

Beautiful sunny ski. The trail had not been groomed by 2pm. It was skiable though for skating. Someone had cut good and consistent looking classic tracks themselves.

Skated Thursday night. Definitely skiable and you can still get an edge pretty easily on 99.9% of the course. Hard to believe given the warm past few weeks, rain, and cold temps recently. That said, some may not like skiing on such hard conditions.
