Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  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.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  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!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Grooming the trails now after a night of rain/freezing rain. Ice has been chopped up and skate lanes are open. No set tracks right now as it is very soft. Sheriff department still advising no/limited travel in the county -- very sketchy side roads. Be safe out there people! Reminder that you need to have to MN Ski Pass to ski here and if you are parking in the upper lot, there is a parking fee payable to the Arboretum.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: All ]
  It is raining here. Roads are icy and Sheriff department is advising "No Travel" in the area. We have not groomed today . . . and will try to make an effort when staff can safely make it to Arb for work. Rain is tough on the snow. Hoping for more snow and cold soon. Be safe out there people!

  Groomed this morning. Set tracks. Have had hundreds of people out skiing today in the warm weather. It's a bit soft this afternoon but may cool down and firm up this evening. Groomer plans on coming back first thing Friday morning. Morning or evening skiing for the best conditions.
