  Overall, we have good spring ski conditions, with no major bare spots. However, there are some ice patches and a few rocks on the trails. The snow we got a few days ago has given good traction to most areas.

  The Upper Gunflint Ski Trails are in good shape for this time of year, with a 4 - 5 inch base in most areas. Almost all of our trails were groomed on Thursday or Friday. There are some icy patches. I only saw one visible rock on the trails. The tracks are in great shape for the most part, but shallow in some places. Overall, we still have great skiing on the Gunflint Trail!

  The Upper Gunflint Ski Trails are in great shape for this time of year. I did not come across any visible rocks or bare spots in the trails today. The base is solid with mostly 4 - 8 inch depths, although it is deeper in places. There were a very few tiny spots of ice, but they were not even the length of my skis.

  All our classic and skate trails were groomed yesterday and today. We had some snow Monday night, and the trails are in great shape again. I did not come across any icy spots, and there are no visible rocks on the sections I skied today.

  Most of the trails were groomed today. The only exceptions are the two backcountry/multi-use trails (Magnetic Rock and South Rim). I measured base depths between 4 and 13 inches. The new tracks were in good shape. I only saw one rock, and that was about 5 feet from the trailhead. The skiing is a little faster than it was before the melt, but the trails are still in really good shape.
