[ Trails Open: Most ]
  Ran the Fort Snelling river trail system (Pike Island & Snelling Lake) Tuesday evening and took note of a nice skier set track throughout. It is definitely spring skiing, there are some thin spots, a bit of dirt showing, and the snow is settling fast. Saw 3 happy skiers on the Pike Island loop. Get after it while we have it!

  Skier made tracks around all of Pike Island made for a pleasant evening glide. No issues with sticky snow using my no wax skis. Plenty of light with the thick clouds and city lights.

  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.

[ Good skis ]
  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.
