The man made loop is in good shape. Probably 1.5k of good terrain. I’ve been using race skis. There are some dirty spots and some sticks, but easily avoided or minimal enough to not worry about. Some people may want to use B-skis. The natural snow on the rest of the trails has melted.

Too fast yesterday but today's skiff of snow provided better edge and resistance for my first few times on skis this season. 1.5 k loop offers variety of flats and hills just enough to brush up on technique and conditioning. Sure do appreciate the snow makers and groomers who work while I sit on a deer stand.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Just completed a 1.5k loop on machine-made snow. Groomed it and set a track. The skiing should be good on this loop for good skis. If you venture on the natural snow, make sure to do it on rock skis, although there is some base. We hope to get some new snow soon.

Snowmaking on the 1.5k man made loop at Mt. Itasca was done on Tuesday and the snow being pushed and groomed on Wednesday and Thursday, ready for skiing on Friday. Local biathletes took advantage on the partially groomed trails already today.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
Snowmaking is going well and the 1.5 k man made loop should be finished on Monday or Tuesday - hopefully ready for the Thanksgiving week. Other trails were packed and groomed with a Tidd-tech. Should be a nice rock skiing.

They did a fantastic grooming job with the amount of snow they had. There are a few rocks/dirt sticking up here and there but for the most part, it was very ski-able.

Absolutely gorgeous day to ski! I don't think it got above freezing as I was going, but started to get a little soft towards the end of my ski. The trail is mostly covered, with a few sticks and rocks poking out here and there. For October skiing, you really can't get any better. The groomers at Mt. Itasca have done a phenomenal job, props to them.

Classic skied this morning on blue hardwax. Trails were groomed early morning and have 2” packed snow with thin spots here and there. Snow was firm and skiing was very nice. Rock skis for unknown hazards.

Firsthand: Both Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
Snow is certainly deep enough for skiing now, but the unfrozen ground makes the conditions rather tricky. Large blocks of snow stick to the kick zone. It has been like that all week. I started out noting it wasn’t as bad this time, but my skis were soon removing blocks of snow from the trails, so I switched over to skate skis and resorted to double poling. Hopefully, colder nighttime conditions this weekend will make things more favorable. We’ll see.
Grooming plans: Snowmaking will be ongoing on lower biathlon trails, but other trails should be packed again by Saturday morning.
