[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  First time on the Stower Seven Lakes Trail. Skied from the beginning of the trail near Lotus Lake and 90th ave (about a mile from Trollhaugen) down to Big Lake Dr. The bike trailhead is actually down a road a little, but there's room for a car or two at the start. Surprisingly good coverage given our paltry snow levels so far. A couple of spots where gravel has been kicked up by animals, a stray snowmobile, etc and trail was a bit lumpy from said fat bike trail and people/animals walking on the trail, but was definitely skiable and awesome scenery. There are places where you have to take your skis off to cross roads, but all in all -- lots of potential on this trail if we actually get some snow.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Had a good outing with waxless classic skis. The trail is 14 miles from Amery to near Dresser and was groomed about 10 days ago when depth was 4". There is about 2" of new material on top of the corduroy. Got good bite on my poles so I was able to stride heartily along. There are some animal tracks here and there and a fat bike rode down the middle, but groomed section is a full 10' so no problem finding velvet surface. Didn't see any gravel so strap on the good skis. The quiet backwoods and farm fields are a one-of-a-kind experience on a former rail-line, and it is flat and straight the whole way.

[ Rock skis ]
  Went to look at the trails and to see if skiable. I did actually put on my rock skate skis for about 50-75 yards or so just to see if the trails were skiable. When I hit gravel a few times, I took the skis off and walked back. The trails were (understandably) not yet rolled or groomed, but mostly snow covered and will likely be skiable with more snow.
