Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Wonderful as usual. Worth the short drive from Duluth. Freshly groomed earlier in the morning. Tracks were in great form. No wax skis were holding solid. Skiing with single layer and a vest unbelievable in January.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We continued to roll and groom the remainder of the trail system today, while setting fresh track and touching up existing skate lanes. We hope to finish final grooming tomorrow before temps get too warm. Some trails are firming up while others are still freshly groomed and soft.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Freestyle Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
I groomed and tracked the interior trails including maple, balsam, Aspen, river, and spruce. I also tracked Sally's Classic trail. We had 4-5 fresh inches of fluffy snow that set great skate lanes and track. I skied many of the interior trails and they are still quite soft. At least there are some trails to ski for the rest of the weekend. We plan to be out grooming on Tuesday to finish the remainder of the trails.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We have all the trails groomed for skate and all sections but white pine and the new trails tracked. Classic trail has been groomed but not tracked yet. We may set track on classic tomorrow. Conditions are excellent with a flat firm skate deck and perfect track.

We skied classic and skated. The classic trails were in great shape, although the oak leaves kept you on your toes. The skate trail was solid and in great shape. First time on the Red Pine trail. What a view!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skate lane is freshly groomed, with excellent skating conditions. A few of our trails (Spruce, Oak, River) have classic tracks set on the opposite side due to the ski race held last Saturday. These tracks will be removed by the end of the week and reset to normal side flow by the weekend. Get out and enjoy!

Ski trails at Afterhours are in perfect conditions for both skate and classic. Firm and fast skiing this evening. Couldn’t be better.

We skied the race today at After Hours and it was our first time there this year. Wow, the grooming was absolutely fantastic and the classic tracks held up incredibly well considering a race had taken place on them! The skate deck was in excellent shape too! The only part that will need attention is the "more difficult" cut off on the way in which you can skip by taking the easy route; lots of snow plowing led to some icy spots. If you have yet to visit After Hours, I highly recommend it!

Excellent conditons! Skied the race today and found great tracks and skating deck. Soft and nonabrasive. Lots of snow.
