Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and single track on the trail SE of Forest Road 256 and from intersection 6 to 7 to 8 and back to parking lot. Got rid of most of the debris from the high winds Tuesday and set a decent track.

  Great, fast conditions out there with temps in the high 20s. Looks like trails have been groomed recently within the last day or so, as the tracks are in great condition! Awesome day for a 20 K!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The Forest Service groomed and set a single track on all the trails this morning. There was 4 to 5 inches of new snow over the base. Tracks will be a little soft but hopefully they will set up some overnight.

  Skied here both Saturday and Sunday. East side trails had a nicely defined skied in track. They probably received about 5 inches of light powder over the last week since the most recent grooming. West side trails and the northern loops (13-14) were solitary experiences, a backcountry wannabe's delight, sufficiently firm and powdery, reassuring me I hadn't overshot capacity, and I might make the parking lot before dark. This place and Sturgeon River remain destination gems in the Forest Service's trail system.

  Tracks are good from the parking lot to loop 1-2-3. However the tracks from the parking lot towards 8 were erased by a snowmobile. If you can make it to the powerline, the ski tracks resume. I didn't attempt to ski it. It was a bit cold this morning.
