  We have closed our courses for the season now. Thank you for your understanding as we worked around tree removal this winter. See you in the fall!

  The trails at Phalen is still closed, with no indication they will be groomed again this year. The park was doing significant tree work, and there are skidder tracks across many areas of the golf course. It appears that hundreds of trees have been removed--I suspect ash trees threatened by the emerald ash borer which hit the neighborhood in the last two years. Thanks to the groomers for keeping Phalen open for us as long as they could this winter. Looking forward to next year.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed ]
  The City of Saint Paul will begin falling trees as early as Friday, February 16th. When this work begins the trail will become unsafe to ski and will be closed to everyone. If we can get a more precise start date and time I will get it posted on here. We are sorry for the inconvenience but we have to remove close to 300 trees before the frost leaves the ground. We will continue to groom Highland-9 as long as conditions allow for it.

  Still in pretty good shape. Classic tracks shallow, but very skiable. John, Lyle and I classic skied but we all thought the skate deck looked really good, not the boilerplate like at some places, but nice loose snow. Half a dozen thin/dirt spots easy to see and avoid.

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Phalen continues to be in great shape with the skate deck freshly groomed and classic tracks set. There are half a dozen or so bare spots in the classic track and a couple of bare spots in the skate deck that are easily avoided. If you are comfortable avoiding those spots, bring your A skis.
