  Skied witih some friends on the man-made snow for most likely the last ski of the season. I used my rock and B skis but it really didn't matter as the snow was icy and sharp. We had to take off our skis a couple times to avoid going downhill on ice and on skiing on bare ground. I am sure the conditions "softened" up in the afternoon. We saw a Three Rivers employee walking on the trail and he told us he wasn't going to bother checking our passes because the trail was closed anyway. Thanks to Three Rivers Staff for great conditions in a not-so-great ski season. See you Next year! Pray for snow!

  Fair to poor. Came here after Lake Elmo showed way too much bare ground to even attempt. Ungroomed but fortunately none of the recent snowfall had melted so no frozen ridges to skate through; just a couple inches of light snow where it was not already packed down by other skiers. I did not go all the way to the top of Scenic Foothills because of the extent of bare ground showing. However other than that I only had to dodge a few bare spots. It was 28 degrees and still sunny at my 6:30 start. Did a slow two miles in a little over 30 minutes. Not sure it was worth it to get in one more ski but I had to try.

  Summary: Better than nothing, but sometimes not much. Trails are officially closed so there was no grooming of the new snow. We actually skied on the man-made trails only. (On natural snow trails, we observed that ski track edges often revealed the ground underneath.) The Scenic foothills and Boulder ridge were blocked off. The Frog Town loop had the best skied-in tracks. Otherwise the trails were haphazard with some snowmobile and vehicle tracks. In some places, the snow could be very thick on one side of the trail and have bare spots showing thru on the other. Many bare spots on uphill portion of Willow creek loop.

  Hyland Cross Country Ski Trails are now closed for the Season. Thank you to everyone who skied on Hyland XC Ski Trails. We do have the best groomers ever! See you next winter or see you biking, skating or running the paved trails!

  Only two other people out, and the trail is clearly fading fast. That said, the track was still imminently skiable. They've blocked off the back half of the loop, so it was down to a little under 3K per loop. Was fun to get out there one last time. Thanks again to the Hyland groomers! You all did a fantastic job making the best of a very challenging season, and I for one can not thank you enough! See you all next season!
