[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Thanks to the groomers yesterday, about 75% of the trail was still skiable on the green and brown loops. Otherwise I had sort of a ski/hike experience where I had to clomp over bare ground. Had a fun time regardless - its all relative given the nature of the season we had. Hopefully we get more snow so the awesome groomers have the opportunity to show off their skills. In the meantime I wouldn't recommend trying it until we get more snow. There's always hope!

[ Rock skis ]
  Huge kudos to the groomers at Lake Elmo for doing their best for us skiers - they've got the never give up attitude! With the understanding that I live on the eastside and thus do not have easy access to human made snow, my standards for acceptable skiing may be somewhat lower than average. But Lake Elmo WAS skiiable. Good, albeit thin, cover on all but a couple of downhills and the bare spots were generally small and easy to avoid. If you venture out, I suggest classic - skaters were edging through to dirt. The green trail, including the finger, was in better condition than the brown trail...could even stride up the farmhouse hill. Thanks to park employees for doing great work.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
  Ski trails on the East side are currently being rolled. Maintenance staff is reporting that the snow cover is thin and soft. Due to the winds earlier in the week there are sticks on the trails. Rock skis are highly recommended.

  Classic skied the Northern Lights trail, it was very soft and the track was deteriorating, with a number of small bare spots along the trail.
