I can't say enough good things about the grooming at St Croix Bluffs. The park staff said that Aaron was the person responsible today, so hats off to him. There is not much snow to work with (not even enough for classic tracks) but the skate deck is quite good. I was the first one to skate the freshly groomed Red and Blue trails starting at about 10 this morning (Friday). The Red trail is mostly through wooded areas and the snow there is holding up quite well. It was just a touch icy for my first loop, but that was gone by the second time I went around. The Blue trail had a bit of debris on it in the wooded section and was perhaps getting a little thinner in the open areas, but it was still very skiable with good skis. With today's wind the debris may increase so your B skis might be a good idea. Get out there and enjoy!

Due to warm temps and soft conditions, all trails at St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park are scheduled to be groomed Tuesday. As of right now, the red trail has been regroomed and tracked. Conditions are considered good overall.

Skied blue and part of red trail. The red part I did was out and back. Blue trail a loop. Gorgeous, quiet, trails had all classic tracks except for a few corners and hills. Great for a beginner who wants to get a bit more challenge. Didn’t ski the third loop. Some places double tracked. A great day with good friends.

Skied all three loops mid-afternoon. Probably not the best choice if you're looking for relief from the cold winds today. The yellow loop had no classic tracks and is nearly all prairie. The blue loop has a mix of some woods along the bluff (with nice views of St. Croix River), and some prairie. Red loop had the most wooded sections, but still felt pretty cold. The red and blue trails were well tracked with only a few sections with shallow tracks. Not a lot of evidence of skiers -- skate lane and classic tracks were well groomed and almost pristine.

This trail was a good choice for today being very wooded to where the wind was not a big factor. Skied the red, south trail and the blue, east trail. Both were recently groomed and the tracks were mostly good throughout. There were some spots where the tracks were shallow and a few spots where they were missing. Overall, a good ski on a chilly day.

Excellent conditions. Was surprised by the lack of significant drifting on the open prairie loops, even with the big wind today. Likely because the trail is adjacent to a thick tree boundary. Classic tracks are great.

All the trails were regroomed today skate and classic. No classic tracks on the yellow multiuse loop. Grooming was perfect with no debris in the tracks.
