  Walked the first 200 yards. Technically skiable but many bare patches, rocks, and sticks. I turned around and left without skiing.

  Part of the Lower Arb was rolled earlier today, and the whole trail has skier-made tracks. Coverage is good except for a few thin places where there are rocks or dirt (clearly visible).

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Upper Arb was groomed this evening. The system is holding snow well. Coverage is a little thin at the Field House but the rest of the 3.5k loop is very good. Could be some of the best natural snow close to the Twin Cities.

  Trails are icy but skiable. Classic tracks are washed out/nonexistent throughout most of the arb, but less traveled areas and woods are better. No bare ground, but patches of ice and wind-blown trails in the prairie sections. Still an enjoyable ski, but definitely subprime conditions.
