We're unburied and back in business after 24"+ of snow over the weekend! Naturally, we've got beautiful conditions on our open trails with wide, solid skate decks and deep classic tracks. I will be packing the upper loops today and possibly be looking at grooming if there's enough base for the PB 100. If you can get out of your house and need to ski, this is the place to be!

The lower trails are all groomed wide and flat. The surface is even and mostly firm. No classic tracks at all. None of the upper trails are rolled or groomed.

As I arrived at Grand Ave my hopes were elevated. Fresh corduroy covered the stadium and deep fryers scented the air. I skated out of the stadium, following another skiers tracks in the corduroy to find no new trail sections had been groomed. The gerbil loops were still comforting.

The lower loop is open, with an out and back at the midway point. Skaters could ski corduroy up to the right of the lift, but only the left side was tracked. The deck and tracks were in perfect condition and there were no bare spots. I used my good skis on them and had no worries.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Full groom this morning with a great skate deck, and a slightly variable track set. The warm temps and some rain this past week has been forming a bit of an ice cap beneath the surface that can be difficult to punch through with the tracks, but overall they have decent depth and should hold up. Here's to hoping for some colder temps and some of the natural flakes soon!

Fresh corduroy at 7 am. It was really nice. Not at all icy. Temp was about 34F. The classic tracks were freshly set, too. I didn't use them, figured the sidewalls would be soft, because I wanted them to stay nice for classic skiers.

Wow, what a weekend for XC skiing in Duluth. I finally got out to just ski on Sunday afternoon and was not disappointed. Erik and Spirit are doing a great job and it will only get better from here. The trail was a little wet and soft from the warm weather, but still a very enjoyable ski. Get out there and take advantage of the early season skiing!

It's a bit damp and foggy out this morning with 34 degrees reading on the snow at thermometer at 5:30am, but the snow has filled up well and is looking great! Our 1200m loop held up to the crowds yesterday with Kikkan's visit and is ready for you to come out. I have full classic tracks set, but it's pretty wet so it's probably klister or skin conditions.

750 meters of perfection! Four pairs of precise classic tracks in the stadium and two pairs everywhere else. If you were here in the morning, an additional section was opened at 2:15pm. Great to be skiing 2 weeks before Thanksgiving!
