Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Groomed and set track on the Inner and Outer Prelude Loops (about 5k if you ski everything), Lake loop to "Z" junction was flat groomed on Monday. May be a little firm but should be skiable. Lots of sticks and branches on trail, please do your part and flick debris off the trail. Thanks.

We got about 4-5 inches of wet snow on Thursday and it was cold enough to groom the snow today. Groomed and set track on Prelude Loops, Lake Loop, and up to H junction; need to pack the new snow on the Tower end before that part can be groomed. Snow was still hanging on the trees.

Firsthand: Classic Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
I did ski in 3 inches of wet heavy crusty snow on all the Prelude loops and released snow from many overhanging branches. Tom, the Groomer, packed the middle leaving the classic tracks. He plans to come back and smooth it all out and reset tracks tomorrow. Plan is to do it early morning before youth skiers and parents are on the trails or after 3 pm Saturday. No ski tracks or grooming on upper loops yet.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Mostly good, the far loops are thin with a lot of twigs sticking up but I was able to step/hop around everything. Some of the bigger downhills are a little interesting with all the stuff sticking up. The closer trails have good coverage and are skiing well. The current snow is much needed. At this point, I would go to Mt Itasca if you're looking for hills.

We enjoyed all the Prelude loops where the snow was white and fresh. No meltdown or icy spots. Double tracks set with skate lane in the middle. We added snow to cover the culvert at the bottom of the last hill.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
About 4-5 inches of snow on the trails. Trails were packed and flat groomed on Wednesday up to Lower Junction. Groomed 2-3 inches of new snow today up to "Z" Junction and set track on Prelude Loop (Inner and outer Prelude has track set, about 2.5 K ). Track has some dirt spots but looked pretty good overall. Trail should be pretty good if it sets up overnight.
