  Excellent conditions throughout, 1/2" new snow last night. Great skate and perfect classic tracks. Photos show that we are sharing the trail, at least at night! Looks like a pack or wolf family at least.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Trails look beautiful today after 2-3" new snow on a hard base. Groomers are out, so conditions should be excellent for the next few days. Sunday the 4th open house was cancelled due to wind chill predictions of as low as -37F.

  This is some of the best groomed trails we have skied! What a gem of a ski area. First time visit looking to do some skate skiing as we were passing through. MN ski pass required. Temps in the upper teens with a slight NW wind. Freshly groomed with outstanding corduroy. They could use some more snow to hide some twigs sticking up in spots but not necessary. Groomer must be a skier because the trail was perfectly scratched for a flat fast incredibly fun skate deck but also groomed for classic on the right. Very wide trails with the majority being 12-18 feet. Parking area with clear map of trails, warming house and out house on site. Very well used and maintained ski area with an open house every Sunday afternoon. From warming house we skied out staying to the right to do the full course. Easy to understand signs at all junctions. On return to the warming house went a second round but stayed to the inside to do the Troll Trail. Very great ski worth the drive as a destination. Thank you for such a great ski experience!

  Conditions are fair. Three days of above freezing temps have left the trails generally icy and thin in spots. Lillie's beginner loop is fine, and the first and last parts of Eagle are also ok, but the south side of Eagle is rough. Troll has had much less skiing on it, so is not as bad as Eagle, but still has steep, icy hills with turns. If you ski the hills, be prepared to control your speed on scrappy skate lanes. We saw lots of boot prints on the hills of Eagle yesterday! Groomers can't do anything with this until we get more snow.

  Soaring Eagle is in excellent condition, and groomers redid the classic and skate lanes. There is also a new showshoe trail this year, with a short loop and about 3/4 mile longer trek through the woods. Trail has a 3" packed base, and has just a couple of thin spots, generally very nice conditions for the weekend.
