Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Reset classic tracks and flattened the skate deck but due to heavy foot traffic it is some what lumpy. Classic tracks are good and crown base was skiing well. Did not set tracks on the watertower hill it was too soft to get the sled up with the tracksetter down. Crust cruising will be awesome early in the day so even though I could hear the Rolling Stones singing 'this could be the last time, babee the last time oh yeah' it ain't over yet. Again if lots of K's are on the schedule Wirth is the way but for a quick April 19th ski try the Hiihto.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
  The Hiihto was not groomed Wednesday morning so is crusty with soft snow underneath, certainly still skiable but do so cautiously. The sun has done in some of the exposed classic tracks and there is some dirt showing. We will try to groom Thursday morning, likely skate only but Wednesday Wirth may be a better bet if you are looking for K's.

  The Hornet Hiihto classic tracks are holding up very nicely. The edges are soft so bring powder baskets if you have them. No skate deck. A few footprints. Overall - fantastic! Thanks go to Andy and Paul for keeping the Edina Nordic dream alive!

  Regroomed the Hiihto this morning. Classic tracks reset nicely although the pole plant is still pretty soft. Classic track is also soft but where it had been skied on it was great. Packed powder in April! Sun is warm so it may not last long, take a long lunch and get some k's in. The Twin skin worked well, good grip on the up hills even in soft snow. Thanks to everyone who has skied the Hiihto this week.
