  Northern side of Pike Island was in good condition, but several segments of south side required skiing offtrack due to bare spots and ice. Most sticks from storm have been cleared from the tracks. Multiuse trails are ungroomed. Rock skis recommended.

  Fort Snelling was groomed for classic yesterday. The parks worker said they would be grooming again today after the snow. Coverage was great! The track is a little soft, but I had a very nice ski.

  Trails were in variable condition. All trails are thin and would recommend rock or B skis for the multi use trails. Pike Island loops were good with a few icy and thin spots, used good skis with caution. Tracks have been degraded by all of the walking traffic and are somewhat washed out. Pretty spot to ski though.

  Freshly groomed. Fair to good. Skied the Pike Island loop. Pretty thin with icy areas on the Minnesota River (sunny) side and a much better track on the Mississippi side as well as crossovers.

  Classic ski tracks on Pike Island (the only Fort Snelling trails that are dedicated skiing, rather than multiuse) were pretty good. They now also groom a multi use trail on the island which seems to have reduced foot traffic on the ski trail. Trails were fair to good. Some rutted icy areas from the presnow warm up, some animal tracks, and someone had hiked between the tracks for a while closer to the trail head. Anyhow, upshot is the trails were way better than they appeared they would be from the road and parking areas where there is a lot of foot traffic.
