Notes

About 17km total of trail loops near the St. Cloud penitentiary. Some scenic woods and great hills. Just a mile from the Mississippi, trails run on land that was formerly a farm and takes skiers through pastures, forests, and apple orchards. Trails are mostly easy to intermediate with a few challenging hills.

An inch of new snow groomed in nicely. All trails have new classic tracks set and skate lanes freshened up on the south trails. Balto’s is open and has a very nice skate deck. Lyle is working on the North Loop as I type this.

I skated a few laps on the Warm-Up, Orchard and Hilltop trails this afternoon. Single-digit temps made for some squeaky snow, which still felt fairly fast under my "cold" skis. Grooming was excellent, with a hard skate deck and boilerplate classical tracks. I did use caution on the downhills just to be on the safe side. Other than a couple of the steeper uphill sections, there was little or no leaf debris. I used good skis with no problem. Kudos to the grooming crew!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
New skate and classic tracks were set on the Warm Up Loop and the Orchard Loop as well as a fresh skate deck on the North Loop. Everything groomed up nicely. The North Loop has a lot of red oak leaves and sticks so use caution when skiing.

Orchard and Warm-up loop were in good condition but got deep at some points. A quick groom and trails could be perfect!
