  Trails are a mix of old snow, slightly transformed snow, and ice from freezing rain last week. Shoveling by Brainerd HS coaches worked well to cover the bare spots on Big Ben. Snow is dirty with quite a bit of leaves and pine needles with some sections of the classic track filled with oak leaves, but some sections are good. Snow depth in the woods around 8 inches with about 3 inches on the trails.

  Groomers are back in action after a brief trip to the motor repair shop. Skate deck is excellent. No set classic tracks yet. Strong winds have knocked down leaves and twigs.
BHS team coming to practice after school 100+ of the nicest, fastest kids around. (You've been warned!)

  Groomers are working hard, I can tell, to work with the conditions. Still very skiable, but definitely on the ice side of things. Wind knocked down lots of pine needles and some leaves, but overall not a big issue. Couple of thin patches.
Fast skiing.

  Groomed old snow mixed with a little freezing rain from Sunday night made for fast skating. In a few areas the trail is a little hard, but not totally icy. Classic track reset on many (all?) trails looked like hard wax would work. Fewer oak leaves in the tracks than on Sunday afternoon. A few thin/dirty areas and quite a few pine needles mixed in the snow in many areas.

  Groomed this morning and overheated both snowmobiles from pulling the Ginsu groomers very slow to chop up all the ice on the trails. Skate lanes are fast. Some dirt showing up at the bottom of the hills on Big Ben and Potlatch Trails. Set lanes are pure ice. Hoping for fresh snow!
