  Raced to the trailhead of County Rd. F after work and got on the skier-tracked trail a little after 6:00 pm. Initially skied well but deteriorated once I took the less heavily skied trail across the channel to the east side Sucker Lake. Track kept collapsing as I kicked with my right leg and every time I lifted my skis snow would stick or clump on my ski. There was no track after you reached the bench at the opening next to the residential subdivision across the street. Once I got back to the west side, I skied pretty well again. I used Rex Red, which was the right wax. It performed well as long as you stayed in the track and did not lift you ski.

  Trails were not groomed, but light and fluffy snow allowed for me to easily follow footsteps. Made for a pretty darn good april ski.

  There were a few groups of skiers helping break trail heading SE from the Vadnais parking lot. Breaking trail was easy thanks to the snowmobile who made a pass last night. Great easy ski sheltered from the wind.

  Skied about half the Vadnais trail around 5 pm. Snow coverage and texture were good, only a few patches of ice under the snow. The tracks were a bit messy, but I'd rate them fair to good, and it looked like the whole trail was tracked, but I didn't ski all the way to the loop and back, only about halfway. Overall good classic skiing.

  First time skiing at this park for me. The trails are fully open, no bare ground and tracks are set. This park has only classic tracks. The snow fully covered all portions of the trail with some drifting near the lake and some blowing from the trees. The snow is very soft. Ski this now while conditions last!
