  Groomed and tracked trail from Menomonie to Downsville. Tracked looked great and skate lane looked very good.

  The Red Cedar Trail was groomed last Thursday evening from Menomonie to Downsville. This included skating lane and new classic tracks. Classic track in great shape and skate lane good as well. There is plenty of snow and no open spots. New snow was placed under the bridge at Irvington.

  Always a fun trail to ski unless you enjoy hills and undulation (which following the beautiful Red Cedar River trail really doesn't have). There is a large ice/slush patch towards the beginning of the trail (if you started at the Menomonie Depot trailhead headed towards Irvington) that I removed my skis and walked for about 35-45 yards. Other than that, there are a few other spots that are a bit icy (as shown in Keith Carlson's pictures in his Jan 14th post) and soft. Most is not that way, but may worsen with expected 40 degree temps. Tracks are debris-filled in parts, but most of the skate deck is good.

  Skied the Red Cedar Trail Wednesday night from Irvington to Downsville. The trail was in great shape for both classical and skate. There were only two very short sections with ice. Note: you can ski under the bridges and do not have to take off your skis thanks Jim T. I did not ski from the Menomonie Depot to Irvington (the more common section skied). Apparently there is more ice on the trail in this section. It can be skied, just use caution when going over these spots.
