Skied the double tracked 5.4 KM classic trail. About 1/4 inch new snow over groomed/tracked trail. Nice place to tour through wooded sections with scenic overlooks of Mississippi River. Kick waxing a challenge today, very sticky snow. From my view, it looks like Spring Lake Park has less snow than Lebanon Hills Park. Did not ski the 2.6 KM skate only trail in the prairie.

Did both loops with my old waxless skis. Classic track throughout, but shallow. East loop through the woods was very, very "leafy". Bring your waxless skis and leaf blower. West loop was better with a few spots with leaves and pine needles. A few scattered thin spots with a little dirt showing but easily avoided.
