Piedmont has lots of snow! Thank you to the person who reskied in the nice track. 100 percent coverage, debris free, kinda deep pole plants, deep intact tracks! We had an interesting experience. The snow was pristine, except for two people who walked on it leaving deep footprints.

Piedmont continues to be 100% covered with no debris in the trails. We skied midday and it was about 33 or 34 degrees. The track that had been skied in was fast, icy in spots but they were well formed and deep so it was super fun to double pole. The other track was only skied in by me yesterday or still had snow in it. The middle was soft enough to run up again. We had frost falling on us, it was so neat! The patterns it made in the tracks were artistic too. There were a ton of deep footprints though, made after I skied yesterday.

Piedmont is 100 % covered, the grooming last week made for skied in tracks that are deep and solid and the 2 plus inches of snow refreshed it again. If people would just stop walking on it, we would be able to ski for awhile longer!

We so appreciate such a beautifully groomed trail for classic skiing — thank you! Nice, quick ski on slightly icy tracks that began to soften in places around noon-12:30 p.m. Best to snowplow down the big hill a ways before getting back in the tracks. Slightly slippery on the uphills but good kick otherwise. Photo says it all :).

We skied Piedmont around 11:am today and wow...what a treat! Fresh tracks, fresh cord! I had my almost totally worn out skins on and the tracks were pretty fast but the middle was just right for running up ...it was so fun to double pole then run! The last lap things were just starting to warm up in the sunny spots. This is the latest I can ever remember fresh grooming by the city of Duluth...thank you groomers! ( This is NOT an April Fool's. joke...it's real!).

Classic trails have well-set tracks with icy patches. Conditions improve away from the trailhead. I used classic skis with stickier wax under the foot and had an enjoyable time. The short, 1.2 k. skate loop is in freshly-groomed, new-snow condition. The west hillside of Duluth received rain, then 3 to 4 inches of snow on Wednesday morning, so the new snow was wet underneath when trails were groomed on Thursday. Coverage is 100%. The only reason not to use good skis might be the ice in the classic tracks at the start.

They groomed and it is awesome! Of course there are spots that are slippery or sticky due to melting. It has a solid base, great tracks and a great excuse to go around twice before the season is officially over.

We skied Piedmont midday today and it is still 100% covered. Tracks are 100% intact, deep, and about 98% debris free. Thanks to the person who chose to walk on the ski tracks with a large dog, we could tell by the depth of their footprint, that we have at least an 8 inch base left if not more. Luckily the destructive walk ended at the first puff puff hill. You can easily use your good skis!

Fantastic spring ski. Tracks were at 50% from perfectly groomed (better than expected). Skate deck was very soft. Waxless skins skis performed very well.

Excellent conditions! A fresh layer of snow over perfectly set tracks. Base is still deep with no hint of dirt. Very little debris. Swix Universal Silver Klister (K21S) worked wonders in the afternoon sun with temps just above freezing.
