LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

WED, APR 18

Valley Spur: Considering 14" inches of fresh snow Sunday and Monday, classic was phenomenal this morning, solid, deep tracks with great kick and glide. Then switched to skates. Deck was still firming up but well groomed. By the time we got off the trails at 12:30 it was softening enough to know it will transform tonight and deck will be firm and blazing fast tomorrow without any ice. Looks to be an incredible weekend of late April skiing this weekend. Snow Flea Hoppet?

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: If you haven’t been out for an April ski yet, then you really should. All trails at HQ were heavenly. I would liken conditions to mid/ end of December or end of Feb. First half of the day is best to get out to avoid too much warm up but anytime is wonderful to get out and enjoy the fresh air and unprecedented skiing conditions. As a bonus, there are plenty of songbirds out for your listening enjoyment and Bob and Lynne are in the shop. Classic skiing is very reliable right now with 2-3” deep tracks but I also did a bit of skate and that was a heck of a lot of fun as well. I could see that people seemed to be getting 10’-20’ of glide on skate depending on if you are on the flat or uphill. Outstanding! I don’t know about you but I’d rather be skiing than sloshing around in mud puddles for cardio. :-) :-)

Lost Lakes Pathway: Probably my last ski for the season but great morning to enjoy skiing with friends & a little glide in my tracks from yesterday. We heard a loon flying overhead, and spotted a sandhill crane on one of the pothole lakes, so Spring must be on its way here!

Cross Country Ski Headquarters: The trails are looking fabulous! Groomer Mike was able to set classic tracks yesterday, which set up overnight and should be in great condition today. He also Ginzu snow combed the skating lanes again this morning. All the trails are open for skating and classic skiing. The best skiing today, and for the rest of the week and weekend, will be in the morning before it gets too warm. The early bird gets the worm – and the best snow!

The shop will be open from 10am to 4pm today. Fran, old Bob and young Lynne are ready to assist with ski and clothing sales, demos, rentals, and more!

See you at HQ!
