  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.

  Skied all trails this afternoon with while snowing. The fresh snow had covered all the debris (oak leaves, pine needles), so no problem with the kick wax. I used the Start blue Terva and it work well in the fresh snow. Most of the classic tracks had not been skied in since it began snowing here around noon. Glide was "left over" Start green with some graphite mixed in. Given the hard, cold and icy base, the glide worked as well as could be expected in new snow conditions. At 4:30 PM the snow had stopped. Have a great time on the trails and remember to support your local ski club and the organizations (arboretum) that provide space for trails.

  Tons of debris in tracks due to high winds. Icy tracks. Skate course is good -- only slight debris. Seriously cold, dress appropriately.

  Skate lanes are the best since out freezing rains last week. Good condition. Debris from trees. We have granular snow due to ice. It is what it is. The tracks are solid with tree debris due to very strong winds.
