Beautiful full moon candlelight ski! Absolutely wonderful conditions. Big thanks to all those who made last night's event so magical. It truly was one of the most well done candlelight ski events. Trails were well groomed. Classic tracks were solid with soft snow in the tracks.

Great news: Today Sally's classic has been beautifully tracked, and the skate deck has been groomed on the northern trails (from parking lot to the loop around 6 corners).

Nothing has been groomed since Thursday. I tried skating with about 2-3" of snow on the trail but gave up in frustration. The classic track has been skied in but was washed out and sloppy.

Most of the trails were freshly groomed today except for Sally's classic trail. Beautiful day to be out with the fresh snow and sunshine. I was hoping to ski the red pine loop which is a nice addition to the Brule trails but the tracks stopped about a half block into the loop and it was only groomed for skating. All of the debris from the big meltdown several weeks ago on the river trail has been cleaned up and the river trail was beautiful today skiing along side the Brule River which is still open.

Great afternoon of skiing at After Hours! Great grooming everywhere. Sally's classic is groomed perfectly. I love the new section of this trail. It meanders around a wave-cut bench of Glacial Lake Duluth near the Brule/St Croix outlet, so very gentle ups and downs, with nice gentle curves cut in the new trail to give it a really wonderful flow. You get to nearly circumnavigate a beautiful pond/bog. Just below freezing, tons of snow, Swix extra blue gave plenty of kick, as the snow cooled down nicely last night.

Enjoyed an early morning ski on Sally's Classic Trail, which had been groomed the afternoon before. The track had some soft spots, but was otherwise well-groomed on gentle terrain. Since the skate lanes were being groomed this morning, Joanie and I then skated numerous trail segments. A highlight was the River Trail, which featured some nice views of the Brule River, along with the sound of rapids. The skate lanes were a bit soft, since several inches of snow had fallen on the trail this week. We really like the variety of this trail system, and there are plenty of kilometers to explore.

The classic trail was groomed and tracked to perfection. The other trails had about 2" of fresh on them.

Trails were well groomed, it was a wonderful ski. Skied maple, oak, white pine (red pine and nebagamon not yet groomed), little Joe, river, aspen, spruce, balsam, and the difficult return. Thank you groomers!
