Great conditions on the 500m snow making loop at Battle Creek this morning. Freshly groomed and lights on at 5:50am. Tracks were getting a bit slower as the snow started coming down around 7, but still awesome.

Was pleasantly surprised to find the lights on at 5:30 as the website only talks about evening. The groomer came out about 6, conditions great for skate. As far as classic, looked icy but ok coverage, hopefully grooming it's great for that as well. So happy to have snowmaking in the east!

Battle Creek was amazing this morning. The loop is short, and there's not much vertical, but the tracks and skate deck were freshly groomed.

Stop 1 of 4 in the Twin Cities snowmaking tour: Hit the trails around 9:30 am. Found good coverage and a nice loop around the pond next to the parking lot. No issues with parking, only 10-15 cars. A classic double track set for nearly the entire loop. But the skate deck didn't appear to have been groomed this morning, and was quite hardpack/icy. Ended up riding the classic track through some of the slippery sections. Great to have this venue on the east side, look forward to skiing it later this winter under better conditions!

We had a group out enjoying the new snowmaking loop around the pond (about 800m long). Great to have this on the east side. The loop has two small hills. There was a bit of dirt showing through on the side of the second one that is easily avoidable.

Had a great ski on the new artificial snow loop at Battle Creek this afternoon. Had nice corduroy and really enjoyed the new loop. Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this happen!

It's a beautiful day in Ramsey County. The first loop of machine-made snow is open to the public! The loop around the pond (approx 800m) has substantial snow and is open to classic (two sets of tracks) and skate skiers. All-Access ski passes are now required to use the trails, to find more info go to ramseycounty.us/ski. Happy skiing on the first machine made snow loop in the east metro!

Snow guns and Pisten Bully are running this morning! John said snow is almost deep enough to start grooming so watch for more details when it'll be open for skiing.

Pistenbully at work! Could not see how much of the trails were getting snow/worked on as I didn't exit the vehicle.
