  Classic skied this morning. Outstanding conditions. Tracks are firm and deep with plenty of base. Skating lane looks firm and fast too. Swix blue kick wax worked well at 23 degree temps. A marvelous trail system with a nice mix of flats and hills. The Huskies have it groomed to perfection. Thanks guys.

  With 18" of snow the last three days, plenty of base. Skiing was a bit soft today as the groomers continue to pack the new snow. Tracks set on some loops. Very good conditions.

  Some bare spots were present with the blowing wind, and some trails weren't yet groomed, and a few trails had a surprising amount of snow even though they had been groomed. That said, the skating was great! The snow was sweet, the trails were fast, and it sure is nice to be back on snow after 10 days without. Thanks, Tech groomers!

  Very icy but almost completely covered. I found several partial trails still had okay skiing with intermittent ice patches. It will be warm tomorrow and I'm going to try to get out again. No classic tracks, just a few spots where skating is still possible.

  I had an awesome three day ski on the Tech trails. I was excited to go downhill and find all the lower Trails freshly groomed. Nice powder and enjoyed the rolling hills. I'm so glad I got three good days of skiing in on Tech and Swedetown Trails.
