  Trails were superb for both skate and classic. Perfect conditions for skin-tec waxes skis. We skied Summit, Bronze, Wynne Creek, Laurentian, Oslo, and Nothern Lites. All trails were in great shape and freshly groomed.

  Lots and lots of snow everywhere. We skied 37 kilometers, mostly on the Silver, Bronze, Summit, Wynne Creek and Laurentian. We basically followed the groomer who was doing an amazing job trying to keep up with the heavy snow. He was having a hard time making any progress because by the time he looped back for a second pass on a trail it almost looked like he hadn't groomed. He was in good spirits though and was still out there grooming when we left. Every trail was skiable for skating and you could see the classic tracks even through the new snow.

  Had an extraordinary classic ski on recently tracked impeccable Gold trail -- clear skies with sun setting, 12F degrees, no wind, wonderful snow, few skiers as the multiple high school teams seem to have left for home new years eve celebrations. My wife and I have skied slope and X-c for over 50 years and today on the gold trail was a top 10.

  I skied every trail at Giants Ridge on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. All are in fine shape. The outer trails (Oslo, Biwabik Spur, Laurentian, and Wynne Creek) are a bit bumpier than others, but worth it for variety, scenery, and backwoods feel.
