Evening
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
Skied last night after refreeze. Some rime on top of a bullet proof base made for fun conditions on the hilly biathlon course. Ribbon skied the upper grant-in-aid trails late afternoon in warm temps today. It was fun too, but they are probably toast for the season now. Hoping the morning pre-thaw conditions will yield at least one May ski on the biathlon course.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
A portion of the trails was Pistenbully groomed last evening, so I got out there and skied this morning. We barely missed the heavy wet snow that fell this week farther up the Iron Range, but we still had a couple inches of light, powdery snow the past couple days. That created enough of a layer above the old, icy crust that it actually was a decent ski!

Several skate skiers out today. Thin snow over firm base. Icy in some spots, excellent in others. Only a couple sketchy spots in groomed area. Biathlon side was just groomed last night. Grant-in-aid side not groomed.

Transformed snow, good spring skiing one month later than usual. 95% coverage. A classic trail could be skied back in if someone was so inclined.

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
After a week of skating the area crust, I had the urge to mix it up with some classic. Hit Mt. Itasca at 11:00 with temps hovering above freezing. The residual tracks were partially covered and softening up. I skied in almost every section of trail and had great kick with skins. 99% of the tracks well covered and still plenty deep. Some of the scary hills on this course became more manageable with soft snow up and down. I saw my first bear tracks on a ski trail this season.

Conditions weren't too bad for the last day of March! In most places, the skate deck was firm, and a fresh dusting of snow on top of the old crust provided co trol over what otherwise would have been an icy surface. The only trails that is partly bare is the south-facing Exit Ramp, and there is a washout due to spring drainage across the corner of the Swamp Loop. Otherwise, all trails are good.

If you want rocket fast skate skiing, look no further. The colder weather has firmed up the snow, and the trails were groomed this morning, and a track was set. The lower Grant-in-Aid trails were not groomed, but I might groom them when I am done skiing.

Tornado Bob groomed for last MYSL session so the grip and glide and slide downhills was so enjoyable for all levels of skiers and parents. Freezing drizzle yesterday and freezing today would have made for pretty challenging conditions otherwise. Thanks!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Another 6-8" fell on the trails, and it was time to groom again! Light, powdery snow means that, even with the Pistenbully, the skate deck will be a little soft. However, the conditions are otherwise awesome! Did multiple passes and set tracks.
