  Enjoyed an early morning hour looping a few laps through Wirth. Was groomed over night, mostly new cord. Dirty and icy spots still relatively easy to avoid.

  Hap loop was groomed and tracked overnight. It is firm and in good shape this morning. The upper stadium and Trail 18 are closed today as we prepare for the Mayor's Challenge this weekend.

  Skied the man-made loop. Conditions were firm with many ice patches. The classic tracks were good in some parts but shallow in other areas. On the positive it wasn't very crowded.

[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Skied from 1 to 3 today, with temperatures starting at 31 and going up to 35. That seems to be the sweet spot for people like me who are wimps on the down-hills. I was a tad hesitant at the start, due to a few icy patches, but gained confidence as it softened up. Sugar and slush on the up-hills didn't bog me down. Glad I went! The only real problem spots were at the top of the small uphill on the south end of catwalk, where you could not avoid going through quite brown snow (though at least it was snow) and the next small up-hill where the snow had been scraped down to ice. Two young men were shoveling snow over another icy area just beyond the loop return junction by the lower stadium, so hopefully they will also do the two spots I just mentioned. Let's cross our fingers that tall the new snow just made for the Mayor's challenge this weekend holds up!

  Snowmaking loop holding up pretty well. Some sugar happening at lunch, but mostly hard with enough give to edge. Guns were running and a couple of guys shoveling new snow onto the icy patches. Thanks to them and for Mpls for squeezing out as much skiing has you have.
