Groomed skate deck and reset the classic track this afternoon. Was pleasantly suprised at conditions. Classic track turned out great and the skate deck is level and wide. Excellent coverage considering the lack of snow we have had.

Course was groomed late last night to take out the wind damage and drifts. Skate deck should be ready to go. Classic track was not reset.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Reset the classic track and groomed them skate deck. Deck is firm and level and looked like it was skiing well. Classic track is shallow in spots and not the prettiest I've ever set but will function just fine. Considering the thin old snow, covered is great. Plan is to groom Saturday night as well. Shout out to the mystery shovelers that are covering bare spots in the shadows- Not all heroes wear capes!

Morning
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Although the course was groomed last night, by late morning the new windblown snow that fell earlier in the day had irregularly covered the deck and classic tracks. However, the deck was very firm, I could easily get an edge, and the classic tracks had been skied in and appeared to cover up any debris or grass. I could have recommended good skis, especially for skating, but not sure what debris might be under the set tracks. It was a very good ski at the U of M course today in spite of the windy and cold conditions. Kudos to the grooming team for stopping to throw loose snow on the most thin and vulnerable parts of the deck/tracks. That is a true commitment to saving the thin base that is there and that we currently have at many venues throughout the Metro.

Grooming

Skate deck was groomed this evening and was wind blown from the last few days. Classic track is a little beat up and hopes are to reset in the next day or two if there is enough snow. Let's get some more snow, eh!

Nice set track, leaves in track can cause abrupt slowdown espically on hills. No bare spots, really enjoyed my first ski of the season, a lot later than normal.

Night
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We groomed twice today to continue to level the skate deck and to take advantage of the temperature drop this evening. Classic track was reset and looked pretty good. Still mixing the ice from last weeks freeze/thaw with the snow for the weekend. Skate deck was looking firm and fast by the time I finished. Tomorrow looks cold, but I think you will find good fast conditions and a wide firm and level skate deck if you venture out.

Skate deck looked to have been recently groomed, skied-in by a dozen or so skiers before me. Decent coverage overall—I used my good skis. Hard pack in spots and blown-in in a few sections. Slower than I expected, but all in all nice. Classic tracks washed out in spots.

Skied the outer loop classic at around 1:00 pm today. Tracks were in good shape except on some of the uphills.
