[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Good solid track set on entire trail system. Tracks were slightly glazed in some areas making them fast! Where there are pine trees along the trail, you’ll find needles in the tracks. Cloudy and 23 made for good blue wax conditions.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
An interesting trail system with fairly good conditions. Skate lane was quite soft and uneven, but the classic tracks were firm and fast. Unusual layout with separate classic/skate trails, and combined in others. Trail map is good, but could use an update. Black spruce bog was a neat feature!

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Cloudy 27, got out before it gets too warm. Skied the Highland Loop, and saw other skiers exploring the others. Good track set on the whole trail and mostly firm. A few soft pole plants along the edges, otherwise skiing was good!

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Skied the Highland Loop, and there were no bare spots. Good coverage all the way. Tracks are thin and the sides soft. However underfoot in the tracks was firm. Some sun and 15 degrees made for a great afternoon. High School Nordic team was arriving as I left for practice. Always good to see.

Afternoon
Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
Too cold for me to get out today with a cold but came out for a look. At least the two loops that start from the parking lots are groomed after yesterday's snow. They are tracked but it looks to be a thin track for now. With this cold snap things should set up good for warmer weather!
