Notes

The Lester-Amity trail offers 15K of varied terrain for beginner to experienced skiers through pine, aspen, and birch forests. An additional 3K circles the Lester Park Golf Course and is accessible from the main Lester-Amity Trail. The openness of the golf course offers an excellent place for beginning cross-country skiers, and several short cuts are available. There is also a 5K trail portion that is lit in the mornings and evenings.

It looked like the trails had been groomed after it snowed yesterday, but the wind overnight did a number on the trails. The tracks were filled in in places with some drifting. There was a fair bit of debris on the trails and in the tracks, mostly sticks and leaves. I had no trouble skiing a couple laps, though, and it was pretty pleasant.

Trails are groomed! Lots of soft snow, tracks were good but a little soft. In more open parts, the tracks had pretty good snow drifts in them. Skied a good amount of the trails, appeared that the entire trail system is groomed!

Haven't skied yet but I walked the dog this afternoon around the park and the trails were groomed and fresh classic tracks set.

Groomed, not plowed! All wheel drive cars only to reach trailhead at the Deeps. The trails are 400 yards from my house. Was shoveling as the Piston Bully went by returning to its flat bed truck.

Groomers were out as we finished our ski around 1:30. Looked to be setting classic tracks too. Love these trails!

Classic skied almost all loops twice this morning. Nice deep classic tracks and skate deck nicely groomed as well, likely early this morning. Beautiful conditions!

The fresh snow was beautiful at Lester tonight. Trails are well-groomed for classic. The powder slowed me down a little on the downhill but I still had great glide.

City just groomed this morning after our 3 inch snowfall. A little tender on the uphills (make sure to not push off) but easy on the old joints! The tracksets are immaculate. I'll be back tonight to classic. Beautiful in the woods today.

Freshly groomed, but the skate deck was very soft and did not look set up yet. Did not ski it.

Lester has been groomed again, all except for the "G" loop, which is still in good condition anyway. Tracks are good throughout, though someone skated on them a lot before they had a chance to set up and hacked 'em up a bit. Looked like the skate lane had some minor washboarding in spots, but overall conditions were very good this evening.
