Notes:   About 17km total of trail loops near the St. Cloud penitentiary. Some scenic woods and great hills.

Trails are mostly easy to intermediate with a few challenging hills.

Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
  The groomers were out last night. I don't have details but it sounds like Orchard and Warm-up trails are rolled and tracked. North Loop rolled and is planned to be tracked later today. A big thanks to the groomers! It is slow going with all of our deep fluffy snow. They are working in pairs, so that have help if they get stuck. Remember to get your MN Ski Pass. All proceeds go to our ski clubs to cover grooming costs. You'll get a good value this year as we could be skiing until July.

Observation Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All ]
  We are living in a snow globe! The most beautiful snow today. I talked to the groomers last night and they are trying to keep up, but snow is so deep that it is easy to get stuck with the equipment we have. Even our big tracked Kubota is challenged with this snow depth. It is slow going. For example, the 1.5k Warm-up loop took 2.5 hours to groom. So please be patient, remember all of our groomers are volunteers. So Orchard, Warm-up and the North Loop have 6 inches of fluff but under that the ski deck is firm. The good news is we will be skiing until July! :).

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I was able to pack and set a new skate deck and classic track on the Warm Up Loop. The rest of the system has 2 inches of fluffy snow on it.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Orchard Loop is now groomed classic and skate. The drifts are knocked down so it's a little soft, but should firm up some overnight.

  North Loop is in great shape for both skate and classic. Firm deck and nice tracks. This report is before the light snow that is falling on Tuesday.
