Notes

Trails are on the golf course. Some nice hills but most of the course is pretty exposed. There is one back leg that is quite shaded and seems to hold snow long after the rest of the course loses it. Rentals at the chalet.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Skied this morning and skate deck is firm yet but choppy. Coverage is still great, save for a few bare spots to watch out for. Classic tracks look intermittent.

Firsthand: Both 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skied around noon. The course had not been regroomed since yesterday's heavy use and thus the skate deck was too choppy for a B skier like myself to skate with confidence. After one lap skating I switched to classic, which was much better. The classic track was mostly good, but by 2 p.m. was starting to break down.

Full 5K trail rolled and groomed, soft deck making it difficult to glide while skating but great coverage. Slippery snow, bright sun, no wind, no crowds. Rails laid for classic but they were soft yet navigable. A perfect winter day that even folks in Boulder or Zermatt would envy.

At 3:30 this afternoon it looked like Como had gotten plenty of snow, it had been rolled and tracked and that plenty of people had enjoyed it. No bare spots but it showed lots of use. Beautiful day to be out! Lots of happy people there.

Grooming

Como golf course cross-country trails were packed/rolled this morning. There is a this base but very skiable. The trail base is very thin under the bridge. Enjoy!

Beautiful weather and great to have loads of snow. Everything had been groomed for a once over but the deck was pretty soft, no issues for damage just hard work and slow.

They had just finished grooming when I got there. The 5k loop is practically perfect, especially in this weather.

Just spoke with staff at Como: They are grooming the trails now, 10:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Typically Phalen and Highland, in that order, get groomed after Como. I have no idea how long it will take.

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
Given the low snow amounts, not surprisingly, no trails have been groomed. There are a fair number of ski track going all over, seeking the deepest snow available. Lots of grass and goose poop is showing and snow coverage over the asphalt cart paths is very thin. It was nice to get out in the sun, on the snow that was there, but Como really need more snow to make skiing enjoyable. The ground under the snow is not frozen. The snow & grass combination was slow and I was getting some icing on skins towards the end of my morning ski.
