Skied classic trails. Beautiful sunshine day, new snow, about 22F, no wind. Perfect day on trails. Used my B skis, but could have used my good skis. Ice layer under new snow. Pine sections less snow base. Some walking damage in one trail section.

Great ski this afternoon. New snow and trails groomed (packed and tracked) this morning. Great job by the groomers, thank you. Encountered 10 skiers and 3 snowshoers (who stayed off ski trails). Skied both the east and west sections, trails in great condition on both sides.

Morning
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Skied the Schaars Bluff traditional ski trails of Spring Lake Park this morning. Found trails to be roller packed but not tracked. In some areas ski trails heavily walked on by hikers and snow shoes, especially around parking area overlooking Spring Lake. Once I got into woods on both East and West sides ski trails improved but still had some footprints. Overall a decent ski.

Night
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ B skis ]
Skated 4 laps on the skate loop after dark. Trail coverage was adequate. Didn’t feel contact with any rocks nor see much if any debris on skate deck. Deck was firm over 30% of length. Remainder was slightly soft and included stretches of looser snow on top of deck. Overall good conditions considering minimal snowfall.

Evening
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Conditions overall are poor. Grass is showing in many areas and tracks are not set. All areas are skiable with rock skis. The south area is worse with windrows and leaves in the tree areas. North is acceptable if comfortable classic without tracks.
