  Phenomenal and beautiful day of skiing at Wild River. Classic tracks set nice, lots of skiers out enjoying this gem of a Minnesota state park. Great day!

  For the most part classical tracks are looking good and skiing nicely. The drier snow doesn't set up as firm as snow with more moisture content, but I'm enjoying the best skiing of the season despite the cold temps. I saw many trumpeter swans in the backwaters of Deer Creek today. Skiing should be great through the weekend.

  Fresh tracks on the Mitigwaki Loop were a welcome contrast to the crusty snow prior to this week's snow. The tracks were a little bit soft which was a little surprising with the cold temperatures. I'm sure they'll firm up with additional subzero weather and more traffic. A couple trumpeter swans were located on the St. Croix River north of Spring Creek, with a larger group located in the open waters just south of the Nevers Overlook.

  Skated Pioneer, Deer Creek loop, and Dry Creek, decent base but lots of debris, a few rocks and exposed dirt. Hopefully a little snow this week will cover things up. Swans and geese in the open water in the middle of the Deer Creek loop.

  Old Logging Trail and Mitigwaki groomed with set track. Lots of debris but skiable, very little ice and no bare spots. Groomers have done a remarkable job with little snow. Sunrise River Trail ungroomed, people walking on Sunrise River Loop, but possible to classic from Sunrise landing into the main area of the park. Amador Loop has many bare areas. Aspen Nob closed due to ice.
