Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
A little mental math while skiing had me in the multiple hundredth time at Swedetown. Bear Chases, ski camps, getaways all tallied and reviewed and this one had “Classic Classic” stamped on it. Well defined track faded into a softened blurb as snow fell for the hour and a half we skied. The parking lot half filled at the start didn’t fore run our trails so we took turns plowing ahead. Heads plastered with snow, buffs whitened, we grinned our way back in and recalled, from start to finish, the many old, yet new touchstones of our skiing past.

Beautiful morning ski before heading back south (boo hoo). As usual beautiful grooming at Swedetown. Skate deck felt a little soft with the new snow from Sunday but was glorious all the same. Skied green, blue, and black trails and all were great.

Skated and strided the Pappa, Momma and Baby Bear loops, and strided Ed's and Greenstone loops. It was nicely groomed in the early morning. Light snow fell throughout the morning while we skied. What a nice trail system!

Skated the easy trails. Perfect grooming for skating. Classic skied the Momma, Poppa and Baby bear loops. Very scenic trails. Enjoyed our ski outting on a partly sunny crisp day.

When in the snowbelt and having snow showers all morning, what do you do? Follow the groomer! He took us from the easy, to the moderate and the difficult trails. We skated and strided three hours. Nice trail system with attractive woods. Only a handful of other skiers.

Great ski conditions at Swedetown. The new Prinoth Husky groomer provides great results. Skate skied Cedar and Birch Loops, part of Pine Ridge and Powderhorn Loops. Perfect skate lane conditions, classic tracks appeared great as well; no debris in tracks.

On a very snowy day I skied down Pine Ridge Trail and then out around Greenstone Loop. Classic tracks were set but in the early afternoon lots of new light fluffy snow was coming down. It was like being in a snow globe for a while there.

Ideal ski conditions at Swedetown today. A bit of fresh snow and new grooming made for a great ski day. We skated in the morning. After lunch we used our classic skis. Both skate and classic conditions are excellent. Moderate temps and light snow added to the great day. Despite the thaw a couple of weeks ago, consistent snow showers have kept the snow in good shape. The chalet is open as usual and busy.

Great conditions at Swedetown with fresh grooming and lots of snow. A touch soft in a few areas but all in all very nice.
