Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  Until temperatures drop and we get new snow, the trails are unfortunately closed. This thaw has not been kind to any trails. We ask that you please go to a manmade loop until conditions improve.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  Phalen is in decent shape, probably because of the infrequent grooming and low skier load. There are bare spots coming through, but the skate deck and tracks are mostly intact. There are cart paths though, so be careful and leave your good skis at home. We will not be grooming until there is more snow because of the thin base. I don't expect it to last much in this weather, but we will post an update if the trails are officially closed and if/when we are able to groom again. Unfortunately we may all need to head to manmade loops by the weekend.

  Skated a few laps around Phalen just as temps were starting to cool down. Overall, quite good. Hard pack trail under a very thin layer of sleet-snow. Very few places were icy and aside from sections where the trail was just under the large trees, the trail is well covered. Very few skiers were out which is likely saving the trail through this thaw. Should be good for another few days.

  Great conditions all around for skate and classical. Some of the hilltops were a bit bare but nothing you can't ski around. One of the better conditioned trails this year. Little ice, and well groomed. Very impressive.

  The skiing was very good. I did a couple loops on classic skis in early afternoon. The grooming was very good considering how thin the base is. The skate deck looked good and there were good tracks most of the way. Some thin and bare spots that could be avoided. A beautiful way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon.
