  We tested some equipment this morning in the upper stadium at Wirth park. If you are looking for one last little ski, and I stress little, the upper stadium has been groomed. The snow is essentially ground up ice, but is fine to ski on. Uou could do some sprints or agility or lap around the 200 meter outside edge. There are no other place to ski at Wirth, everything else is pure ice or bare ground.

  Close to unskiable. Twin lakes likely gone after today. Weaving around the growing bare spots was challenging especially the downhills. Very good kick running up hills on bare ground. Full snow coverage at upper and lower stadium areas if you want to ski back and forth. First downhill from the upper stadium was good. Second hill was completely bare. Took fast face plant when a ski pushed through what appeared to be good snow onto gravel. Saw two others arriving as I left at 2:30.

  The crew groomed Twin Lake Trail, Skyline, and JD Rivers this morning. It was all groomed for skate and only Twin Lake was groomed for classic. The snow depth was insufficient to set tracks in the other locations. We will attempt to set tracks in the other locations after the snow has had time to set up. The conditions are ok, with grass and sticks showing through in a few areas. The Skyline trail is probably in the best shape since it is on the golf course and the grass is mowed the shortest there.

  Corduroy! The inch or two of snow on top of what we already had made a fairly tolerable ski outing. The groomers were out in front of me, so I had some corduroy, albeit gray in places. Overall, good coverage and you can't really ask for more given the season. I neglected to add a layer of fast wax, because I expected to be disappointed, but that wasn't the case. Classic tracks were fresh but I didn't try them.
