Notes

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

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Classic tracks are mostly wind blown in - generally just a hint of where the tracks are, and completely filled and hidden in other places. The skate deck looked quite good.

Nice tracks through the course. The thin areas were covered better than earlier this week due to the recent grooming. Thank you!

The cross country ski trail at Phalen golf course had a fresh groom this morning. There is a couple very thin areas in the trees but otherwise the trail is in great condition. A new classic track was set as well. Stay warm skiers!

Skated this morning on a firm deck. It looked like boiler plate but was soft enough to skate nicely. Classic tracks looked well formed although a few sections were filled with blown snow. Great conditions at Phalen!

The St. Paul Parks groomer is a Super Hero! John skated and I classic skied and the conditions were nothing short of amazing! Yes, shallow tracks, but well formed and easy to stay in even around the corners. There were a couple dirt/pine needle spots where you'd expect them under the pine trees (duh!), and one dirty spot at the top of a little downhill, but all easily avoidable. Otherwise, considering the lack of snow, the groomer did an incredible job working what little snow we have. Thank you!

I skied at dusk. The classic track looked freshly set. It's a little close to the right side of the track, which means the occasional pole punch. The classic tracks were in good shape, though, even where the wind had blown some snow into them. There was only one place where I had to step out of the track because there was too little snow under some pine trees, but it's easy to see and avoid (I'll be using my good skies the next time). There were maybe a half-dozen skiers using the trails. I really like this track (6.5K for the whole loop). Thanks to the groomers!
