Great conditions at Giant’s Ridge. Skate skied Oslo and Bronze and found corduroy everywhere, classic tracks were laid down. Just beautiful conditions.

Excellent conditions at Giants Ridge today. The skating deck was firm with just a bit of give. Gold and Cedar loops freshly groomed. Silver had seen some use but still great.

A great day to be kicking for fun on Atomic skin skis. Moist snow came down the whole afternoon and fresh pow on the trail provided a low impact yet surprisingly fast track. 95% was breaking trail, as both skiers I saw were skating. The kick was just dyno on the Bronze, Oslo, and Biwabik Spur trails. What a day to climb. And descend. Plenty of both on the route I took.

I took to the trails after ski practice on Friday evening, to find Thursday's fresh snow not groomed in anywhere as of then. My hopes were high, that I would find some fresh grooming / classic tracks on Saturday morning, but from 9-11 am, there wasn't any sign of a refresh happening on any of the trails. The Cedar was devoid of any tracks as well the lower Gold. The Summit, NL, Bronze, Laurentian, Wynne Creek all had old skied in tracks, and same for the skate deck. At 11:30 am, the team and I hit the Silver system, to find the skate deck was snow covered as well. The stadium is the only place that had fresh cord and tracks.

Skied at noon in balmy 18F sunny conditions. Disappointed that trails hadn't been regroomed since Thursday's light snow and there were no classic tracks at all up the hill out of the stadium or across the golf course, and none for at least the first part of Cedar. Skied Summit and once I got out to the Summit Trail there were very skiable old classic tracks. Hopefully they've regroomed for the weekend. Glorious day to be out in the sun.

5” of new snow on Saturday, groomed Saturday night, temperature at 28 degrees, made for awesome skiing! We also did a night ski on the Northern Lights trail. Beautiful!

What a pleasure to ski on a freshly groomed trail! There was some fresh morning snow, so it was a softer track and slower ski. Things started to firm up a bit in the afternoon when we took the kids. I classic skied and the tracks were soft and a little thin, but it was well worth the drive.

Last night's snow dusting had settled into the recently groomed tracks, but the kick and glide were good to go on the Gold, Cedar, Bronze and Oslo trails. The corduroy looked fresh as well. All the little snowfalls are adding up to great skiing on all the trails at GR!

Windy today, so there was some scattered debris, easily avoidable. Thanks to the groomers, the skate deck was freshly groomed and there is no ice. Some areas are a bit softer and the classic tracks are losing some depth. Excellent coverage still, wonderful trails.

Alpine and Nordic conditions close to excellent. Lots of virgin corduroy on Alpine; Nordic the same. Few skiers of any persuasion. Worth the drive!
