[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Groomed and track set all north Suomi trails. It looked like it had been quite heavily used lately so it was nice to Ginzu knife them and re-track set. There is a fair amount of wind blown needles and small twigs from trees on the trails, but all and all pretty good.

This trail is still skiing very well with no bare spots on the main trail and excellent tracks. The trail to the north lot has a few dirt spots that are easily avoided.

Skied the Beaver Lake and Balloon Lake loop at North Suomi. Very nice tracks throughout and good snow coverage. There was some debris, pine needles and bark, but didn't see any bare spots. Great conditions and a beautiful, hilly trail!

We had a terrific ski at S Suomi. The tracks are nicely set and width of the packed trail outside the tracks allows for step out when needed for cornering. It was a beautiful sunny day-as good as it gets!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
North Suomi: All groomed and track set. 2 1/2" of snow last night made for some good trail grooming and track setting. Trail slowly gets more and more base, but still some rocks are hit. I never get tired of the tremendous views on the Spruce Island Lake loop. Amazing terraine to say the least!

Skied everything that connects to the north parking lot. Trail was in good shape, with some sticks and brush poking through. Picked up one scratch on my skis, so B skis or rock skis recommended. Can't beat the views and a great chance to practice those in track descents.

Groomed and track set the north system, all but the Kremer Lake trail. Still hit a couple rocks, but all and all pretty good. There was 4"of fresh snow. Double track set from North parking lot down to Adelle Lake. Deer, Otter, and snow covered trees!

We skied the south trail system and had nice conditions -- the snow was great and track was good. A couple of small rocky spots but nothing a little more snow won’t fix. Overall good conditions and worth skiing.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
North Suomi packed today. Very little track set as there isn't much snow. Rough, rocky, but a start. Thanks to the snowshoers near the north parking lot and around the Balloon Lake loop that helped keep the groomer up more off the ground. Waiting for more snow!
