  Skied (sort of) Eagle Point. 43 degrees and really sunny. Skier-set track washed out due to melt or snow shoe-ers on western and southern portions. Several bare spots on north side to that you could ski around on the snow on the sides of the trail and one stream to ford at far western end that required going about 150 feet west of trail to cross it (with skis on) at its narrowest point. Slush was on the straight away leading to the climb to the Quonset hut. Made the mistake of not going all the way around and soaked my socks. I used Swix Red Extra. Snow did not clump and got some bite but it was slow. With multiple stops to try and get thru to my wife to make excuses as to why I was going to be late, it took me 1 1/2 hours to get around the trail. It was a beautiful day outdoors but not great skiing.

  I decided to go out to Lake Elmo Park Reserve this evening due to all the brand new snow that we have received. There have been lots and lots of people out there skiing on their own made classic track. It would be so nice if Lake Elmo Park Reserve would roll and pack the trail system and set the classic tracks.

  I skied the perimeter portions of brown, green, and orange. There is no more grooming but were some tracks, now there are tracks all the way around. There were a few places where wind had blown the trail bare on the brown, but otherwise there was plenty of snow.

  I took a lap around the perimeter of the East side trails. 7k. There is a pretty good user track to ski on. There's occasional dirt at the bottom of the tracks in sunny areas. I own some $130 fish scale skis and they worked great today. I ran into some folks having clumping issues with their wax. Waxless skis are recommended if you have them. Overall, it was a great time.

  If you come here to ski, bring mountaineering skis. No grooming. I inquired at the park office and was told they are done grooming for the year.
