Notes

Most of the trails are on the golf course, thus pretty open and fairly flat. The course really winds back and forth.

The track wasn't ideal, but still a great time. There were parts covered by wind blown snow but I skied thru it with no problem. The NW corner was icy as were two other hills, but the rest of the course was good as long as you stayed in the tracks. The west side had a lot of small pinecones, but easy to skate over.

Skate conditions are very good right now at Phalen. The trail had a lot of wind blown snow in the corduroy but still skied fast. The tracks looked outstanding other than some wind blown snow in the north / south sections.

Skied a loop and a half over lunch. Hasn't been groomed since the recent snowfall, but conditions were surprisingly good! Soft fluff over hard-pack. Couple of icy spots in the shade. Recommend B skis since all the bare spots got covered up with new snow. Someone laid down some great classic tracks as well! An absolutely gorgeous day!

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Skied the tracks which are well set and only a couple of semi bare spots under trees. Tracks themselves have enough snow so it's not icy but the edges and untouched surfaces have a definite ice crust with a skiff of snow. Glide and downhill was somewhat sluggish.

Fast and icy. Grooming barely scratched the surface, providing little edge bite. Luckily, fairly flat golf-course loop. It works, but be careful.

Fast and icy but tilled enough to have good control. A few places with some drifting snow to keep you honest. A slight ridge between the classic and skate lane but easy to manage.

Grooming

The cross country ski trail at Phalen golf course was groomed this morning. The tiller broke up the ice layer that had formed from the recent warm temps. Overall the trail is thin but still in good shape. A new classic track was set. Enjoy!
