Excellent skiing. Trails are freshly groomed. Nice temps and little wind make for an enjoyable outing. Lots of deer in the area. You can ski close by them if you don't make noise and keep a steady pace. I passed within 15 yards of several and saw over a dozen--some in beds.

As promised, city groomer did the entire system today so it is perfect for the weekend! City of Cohasset takes great pride in keeping the trails in tip top shape!

Conditions are good but the trail is in desperate need of grooming. 2-3 inches of new snow in the skate track, would make skate-skiing very difficult. I called the city Parks and Rec, they said they planb to be grooming this trail Friday.

City groomer did the entire system on Sunday morning so it was picture perfect for Sunday and Monday kids day off from school. Today's winds dropping some leaves and debris in tracks.

Groomer did both MN Power and Portage Park this morning, but it has been snowing all morning with over 2 inches already. Go ski in the fun powder before it gets too deep!

Lots of leaves and sticks, both in the tracks and on the skate lane. We could use more snow! I picked up some of the bigger sticks and branches but can only do so much on skis. The trails have been well used and tracks are washed out.

Packed and tracked by City groomer who says conditions are good. At least before more oak leaves or pine needles fall!
