  Skied with the kids. Trail is in good shape. It is a somewhat hilly trail and some downhills have some icy spots, but mostly in good shape. Worth doing.

  Great skiing at Pine Valley in the late afternoon today. Good skier traffic since the skate lane and classic track were groomed yesterday and conditions are holding up well. Classic track has some early signs of wear on a few turns but the tracks are solid. Skate lane is firm and flat. A little bit of tree debris here and there but no problems.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The City of Cloquet Parks crew groomed the trail system on Friday afternoon, a new classic track was set and the skate lane is flat and wide. Pine Valley received about six inches of snow earlier in the week and conditions are excellent.

Firsthand Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Great conditions in the evening, the 2" or so of new snow was groomed by the city crew during the day. The skate lane has leveled out nicely and although it was still a bit soft and slow gliding on the new snow, skating was just fine. A full-depth classic track was set and gliding in the lightly-used tracks was much faster than the skate lane. More snow is in the forecast. There is a high school race set for 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday (January 10) on the lighted loop.

  I cheered when the groomer went by right before I started skiing. The skate lane is freshly groomed and the downhills are a bit shriek-inducing. There are a few patches of the trail scattered with pine needles and leaves. No classic tracks are set. The snowfall over the weekend has covered up the bare ground that was starting to show on the south-facing slopes.
