Rollerski Report

Reports: 7   Report Age Region
Minnesota Metro Area
  Twin Cities area [ forecast/conditions ]
  • Oct 23 - Browns Creek Trail (Stillwater):
    Conditions: Smooth asphalt.
    The new trail is paved from downtown Stillwater out to the Gateway. A slight uphill grade all the way makes for a perfect roll and it's as smooth as can be! Super sharp ferrules is a must. Crowds are not bad and there's a lot of happy faces out there. 12 mile round trip.

  • Oct 14 - Hyland Lake Park Reserve (Bloomington):
    Fall colors nearly at their peak at Hyland -- great time for rollerskiing (or trail running)!
    (Bruce Adelsman)
  • Oct 9 - Elm Creek Park Reserve (Maple Grove):
    Three Rivers has done some work at Elm Creek on the Northern Lights Trail. Widening the trail and filling in low spots and adding a couple of culverts. We might have to be a little more careful skiing early or if there is low snow however as there is now some gravel in spots where there didn't used to be.

Minnesota Northeast

  Duluth area [ forecast/conditions ]
  • Oct 3 - Spirit Mountain (Duluth):
    Conditions: Mowed yet mushy.
    We saw the mower the other day and since it was snowing, we decided to check out the trails today on foot. We did a short part of each trail and found them really mushy with hidden holes! We picked up a bunch of trees that had fallen and Andre was out there working on the trail.
