Skate skied, all loops well covered with minimal to no debris. Packed well, groomed again since last Thursday. Classic tracks appeared in good condition too. Happy trails!

Our main concern with the wind today was possible debris in the tracks...that was the least of what happened on the trail today. Parts of the classic track were starting to get drifted over, there was minimal debris however. Appears there were issues with grooming as on the way back after Ely's peak to the end today was the first day I've literally felt like I was running into mini trees a lot! There were even places where they were sticking up in the classic track. Unfortunately, people still skated right over the classic tracks in many places collapsing them in. The skate lane was a whole different set of fun. Someone (or something) ran up the middle of the entire skate deck creating small divots. In addition, the surface was rock hard with an edge and must have been soft before because there were lots of ruts made from skaters. They groomed yesterday I believe and the tracks are well formed, the skate deck is great...but it was unpleasant to use.

Really good classic conditions today. It doesn't look like it had been groomed since the dusting the other day, but the tracks were perfect. The skate deck looked a little sloppy. Nothing resembling a bare spot, and there was very little debris on the trails.
Lots of branches overhanging the classic tracks.

Great time out this evening. Trails are a bit icy, but recently groomed. Steep downhills were fast and sometimes a bit scary for me, an average skier...no wipeout's except the final hill to the parking lot. It was beautiful!

Beautiful and fast conditions. Thanks to the grooming crew for the fresh corduroy, they must have been out this morning. I skied the whole trail and the skate deck was great, the tracks looked good also but I wouldn't know personally.

I checked out Magney and it looked pretty dangerous! I could see ice on the skate deck and classic tracks. The road to get there would be easier to ice skate than drive too! I'd wait until it's groomed unless you like wicked fast/bordering on dangerous.

Magney was great today. Classic tracks were in good shape. Fast and fun. Skied the all the trails. The skate deck looked good as well, maybe a little soft.

Came from Spirit and, upon seeing fresh grooming at the connector, was really excited to ski Magny! Grooming was sweet. But the snow that was tilled up was cold and aggressive. Skiing was sloooooowwwww. I'm exhausted but happy to have skied my favorite trails today. I'm sure the snow will speed up now that it's exposed to warmer temperatures.

Upon arriving at Magney, I wasn't sure if I would get the freeze/thaw scary nightmare type of ski or the fresh grooming pleasant ski...lucky for me it was the latter! Fresh cord and firm tracks were such a treat as it was groomed today!

Classic skied the entire system in the dark and it was perfect. The groomer set the track, which is shallow in spots, far enough into the skate lane so the right pole plant is firm and predictable. Once a few skaters go through the classic tracks may be skied over, however. Thanks to the City for grooming out here twice in one week!
