Skied all trails here today. Fast and firm to start, becoming corn as the morning got later. Coverage is good overall, but it is thin in spots, and the snow is getting a little dirty on the north end. Hopefully we get a little dusting to clean things up a touch. Fun trails!

Terrific evening ski. Classic tracks holding up well - could use a good snow. Colorful sky above the trail as the evening sky faded to dark.

Skied the classic tracks. Trail had been groomed and tracked earlier in the morning. Wonderful skiing and scenery. Thanks to the Two Harbors groomers for their usual great job.

Sticky. Fresh snow falling, the woods were beautiful. The trails should be ideal after grooming.

Nice views of Lake Superior throughout. The coverage is solid for the amount of snow, but the trails aren't very smooth. Debris and ruts made for a bit of a bumpy ski, it looked like a snowmobile had gone through in places. Definitely skiable, but I'd advise against good skis. A few thin spots, easily avoidable. More snow would do wonders for this trail. Still a very nice afternoon up the shore.

Skate lane was uneven and grooved / rutted in areas - some areas worse than others. The classic track was shallow but not to bad - didn't seem glazed over. A few inches of snow would be very helpful.

Tracks are pretty crunchy due to the rain this past weekend. If you’re okay making your own tracks, ski on! Trails need to be groomed again.

Best condition I've enjoyed this winter. Classic tracks were fim and fast, with occasional spots of dirt and vegetation turned up by track setter. Skaters in our group complained the skate deck was uneven, but it looked good to me. I skied most of the trails on my skin skis in the high twenties. The skins were a little draggy.

Skating was good, a little bumpy and lumpy in spots but good coverage and good grooming. The classic track had just been switched to the right, so that made the left a little undulating from the old track still showing thru a bit. The new classic track was perfect.

While we need another good dose of snow the trails were holding up. Grooming was good, but heavy usage beat out the tracks a bit. The advanced spurs on the outer loop were not groomed so I’d avoid those unless you like a slog. There are a few twigs poking up, but nothing that would cause any damage. All in all, a pretty place to ski.
