  Conditions: Outstanding for both skate and classic.
Several inches of snow overnight transformed the trails from spring conditions to mid-winter. Skintecs were the ticket for classic skiing, climbed every hill in the tracks. Skate deck was initially soft, but firming up by afternoon. Get there if you can, there's plenty of snow.

  Conditions: Great spring classic skiing.
Plenty of snow remaining and fairly consistent classic track in place. Waxless skis were the best choice for navigating a mix of deep and sticky or thin and slushy trail. Currently snowing overnight.

  Conditions: Perfect! Groomed this morning! Track probably icy, but skating was wonderful in mid-20's sunshine.
Skied several loops at Hidden Valley this morning on crisp, fresh corduroy. A bit icy in places and a very few bare spots on one side or the other but wonderful spring skiing. The interior High Birch loop was especially nice. Go if you can.

  Conditions: Ski season resumes.
After days of melting and a heavy rainfall, we received 8-10 inches of snow. The two main loops (Bambas and Sommers) are groomed for classic, and Bambas is well packed for skating. Skiing through the snow-laden trees in bright sunshine and mild temps -- beautiful!

Grooming Scheduling 
  Hard base underneath. But on top is groomed snow from December and early January. Two nights ago we received many inches of white, dry fluff, currently being groomed in. All trails are open with the exception of Pine Park and Hannah's Trail. Conditions are excellent for both classic and skate. The Ely ski team practices every weekday from 3 pm to 5:30 pm. Minnesota Youth Ski League is on Sundays from 2 to 3:30 pm. Check the Ely Nordic Ski Club website for more info on these programs.
