  Tracks are holding up fairly well, they should be skiable through the weekend. The Wadena Deer Creek cross country team had the distance runners cross training by skiing today. I took a few pics of Coach Olson and the team on trails. Great to see! All of them successfully skied down Harry's Gultch!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Set track on all but Pit Run today. A couple of marginal covered spots where track setter was lifted, leaving snow as intact as possible. Alpine Loop was groomed in order to get up on top to take in the views of the stream. It's a great place to be at sunset. Tonight's cooling temps should help set the tracks for a solid week of skiing!

  Gorgeous. Nicely groomed with little icing and only two bare spots on grassy windblown top of Alpine Loop. First or second set of pole plants since grooming.

  Skied all trails, except Alpine this afternoon. Somehow my trail report yesterday claimed to use rock skis ; this definitely is my error. A skis are fine, except possibly on that pesky exposed to the wind Alpine Hill on Alpine Loop. There are 3-4 very small spots that had some dirt scattered in the bottom of the track. Tomorrow we will cover those spots with fresh snow. Pit Run Trail, has soft aprons and tracks not having been groomed enough due to lack of December and January snow. It's still very skiable, but with less than top energy pole plants. It was great to see some skiers on the trails in our little gem of a park today. Trails should be midwinter prime for the weekend. Hopefully we can encourage the walkers to utilize the groomed fatbike trails!
