The North End Skate Trail was groomed by late morning today. Conditions are great and we're going back for a second loop this afternoon! Tracks for classic skiing have been dropped on the edge of the skating trail and it looks like the single track Classic ski trail is currently being groomed. Thanks to the groomers!

Fantastic glide on the trails this morning! The trails had just been groomed. Skied North End circuit and part of Tony Wise Trail. Wise trail was not groomed today but only had light fluff which made for great edge. We skated but classic looked good - especially classic only trails. What a special trail system!

The trails are in fantastic condition. Maybe an inch or more of fluffy snow since the last grooming made for a little extra resistance training but awesome kick. Such a beautiful wooded network. Love the classic only single track trail.

Temps got above zero for the first time in a few days so I got out. At the North End, there is fresh grooming on the A loop as well as the full Tony Wise loop. Corduroy on those loops was laid down not more than a few hours before I got there. Also full depth, well formed classic tracks everywhere I went. The B and C loops had been groomed recently but not today.

Some training buddies and I tried to classic ski the main NE trails this morning while it was still snowing heavily but before the artic cold sets in. There was no grooming expected and none found. There was 4-5 inches of fresh snow on the ground while we were out and it continued to snow hard the entire time. This morning was a slog but there should be some great skiing once the groomers get out.

I skated out of the North End Cabin and mainly skied on the World Cup and Tony Wise Trails, I used the North End Ski Trail as my connecter. The trails were well groomed with very good coverage, the trails were level and firm and the tracks appeared to be in very good condition. It snowed the entire time I skied, the Cable area received about two inches of new snow by the time I finished up.

Great skiing today at the North End. All skate lanes freshly groomed sometime earlier this morning. Classic tracks were reset at the same time. In addition it looks like all the classic only single track trails have been regroomed as well. The North End system is a playground right now.

Found perfect conditions this morning and both the classic only trail as well at the A loops for skate/classic! All were all groomed by volunteer Ron Bergin this morning! Perfect conditions and the 3-4" of powder buried all the sticks that were present from the wind strom on Friday. Saw several people skating as well and it looked pretty firm. Should be even faster once things fully setup.

Skiers will find good skating and classic skiing at the North End Trails just outside of Cable. The North End Trail had just been recently groomed and is in very good shape. There is some debris here and there. Have fun!

Very good for both skate and classic. During this morning's exploration of the ABSF trail system, I detoured for a loop of the North End system. It looks like the A, B and C loops all got groomed either late last night or early today. Classic tracks are not quite full depth everywhere but look very good in most places. Repeated grooming has managed to bury/grind up most of the tree schmutz on the skate deck so conditions are much improved from the past few days. I did not see any evidence of recent grooming on the old Tony Wise loop but the primary loops are in very good condition.
