  It seems they are done grooming the lakes for the winter. I skied out the door intending on going up Cedar/Brownie Lakes to Quaking Bog and continue towards Theo, and none of the trails were set, groomed or tracked. Bummer.

  Talked with ski chalet attendant at Wirth Park this afternoon. Due to slushy conditions on the lakes under the snow, they do not plan on grooming the lakes any more this season. Thanks to the groomers for the great skiing on Brownie, Cedar, and Lake of the Isles this year!

  Just skate skied Lake of the Isles and the groomers passed by me. Classic tracks appear to be in good condition.

  Ran into neighbor who skate skied the lakes and he said they were in good shape and he'd had a good ski. Groomers had been out this morning. Trail over 394 to the woods are ice to double pole through along with the link along 394, but trails in the woods were pretty good (skied those myself).

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  The lakes were all groomed again today and are in good shape. The skate deck is in excellent shape in most areas and new tracks were set on Cedar and most of Isles. The lakes held up very well through the warm days this week.
