  Beautiful ski amoung the snow covered trees today, even if it was a short one. So much snow! Trails were groomed perfectly, deep classic tracks. Just a bit cold, ski was slow. Will be awesome this weekend with warmer temps!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Skate lanes have been groomed this morning. New classic tracks have been set on all trails. A new classic track was just set through the field that hooks up with Little Ben Trail. There is a lot of ice and snow chopped into the snow after yesterday's glazing.

  All Arb trails groomed and tracked today. Trails have about 2-3 inches of well packed, fine grained, cold power over a hard transformed base. Fairly slow glide, but plenty of kick. Only a very few small areas of dirty snow and a few leaves. South Acorn was the worst trail for oak leaves, but not as bad as it sometimes gets. Final grooming for Sunday's Lumberjack Jaunt will be done on Saturday, with maybe a little more on Sunday morning. This will be the best snow conditions for the Jaunt in several years.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Fresh snow this afternoon -- a light dusting. Groomers have been out this morning. Due to extreme cold and windchill, the Northland Arboretum's Visitor Center will be closed Tuesday, January 29th through noon on Thursday, January 31st. If you chose to come out skiing, please be very, very careful. Parking payment for non-arb members is expected in the self-serve kiosk.

  Three inches of fluffy snow Monday packed down to about one inch over a hard old snow base. Classic track set today was mostly very good, but a few short sections of leaves/dirt. Same for the skating - mostly very good but a few short dirty spots. Could use good skis if you watch out for the dirt. Even if we don't get any more snow we should have good trail conditions for the Lumberjack Jaunt on February 3rd.
