We groomed the Gold loop and set new classic tracks this morning. The trail is just a little soft but really in amazing condition. Enjoy!

I skied some of the best conditions all year this morning on the Gold, Silver, Bronze trails. Skate deck is set just enough to highlight the fresh snow from the last few nights. Get out there and enjoy this mild weather and fast snow!

Classic skied all trails and Silver and Gold were in the best shape. The Games trail was a bit pushed out and soft and could use a fresh grooming. Hard to complain when you have this great of coverage. This winter has been awesome! Lots of skiers enjoying the day.

Fantastic day. Was out after John and Dave finished grooming. Hats off to all these guys that are volunteers for Ramsey County. They do a phenomenal job of grooming the trails daily and many times late at night to ready the trails for high school ski meets. Please thank them if you see them out! Skied the Gold and Silver loops multiple times and skate deck was already starting to set up well. Best hills in the metro for Birkie training in my opinion. Skate deck is now perfectly flat. Get out and enjoy!

Gold, Silver and Bronze trails were groomed this morning. Three passes on the skate lanes and we removed and then reset the classic track. BC has plenty of snow and conditions were very good. Should set up well for the weekend.

Skied the Silver Trail this morning. No grooming today but the 1-2" of new snow on the trail skied well. The base under the new snow was firm but not icy. The tracks looked good and when I jumped they were solid.

Skied every inch of Battle Creek today, just after an East Metro HS meet wrapped up. (Someone left all the course-marker cones behind over 5k of track.) Abundant snow everywhere, conditions fine, and tracks looked mostly good. Ski Games trails were pillow-soft: not to everyone's taste. A few leaves in spots, and there was a bit of a toboggan-chute profile on some of the steepest back downhill turns. But overall, it was a great day and great conditions at Battle Creek!

Skied early afternoon, found the trails to be in very good condition. It's been a number of years since I've been able to ski here, and it's always an eye-opening reminder how technical and so fun these trails are! Some of the best in the Midwest for challenging terrain, yet there are other segments that provide easy, gently rolling experience. It was well groomed today, only the Ski Games ski was just a little softer, but it all skied very nicely. Newer trail markers are excellent.
