  Snowmaking loop was holding up fine this morning with temps in the mid 30s. It was fast surface, but just enough edge control for OK skiing. A few sections are looking dirty, but I didn't hit any show-stoppers.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  Skyline and Twin Lake Trails are groomed for skate skiing. The classic tracks were not re-set. The conditions are marginal but passable. Be cautious for a few icy, thin or slushy spots. Judy Loop is closed due to ice, slush and bare areas. The Hap Lutter Snowmaking Loop is groomed and tracked. Stay tuned for updates on conditions of other trails as they are assessed throughout the day.

  Skied all the trails north of 394. A few fairly large bare patches here and there on all the natural snow trails (like maybe 6 patches on the whole system). But mostly, conditions were excellent. The snow was just starting to get soft around 3pm. If it freezes tonight then tomorrow morning should still be pretty good. Was glad I used rock skis since some of the bare patches were hard to avoid. Classic tracks looked pretty shallow or non-existent on the natural snow segments. The man-made loop was in fine shape.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Manmade snow skate deck was fast and fun. There was about an inch of snow/ice shavings to provide some stability over the solid base with a little more on some of the uphills to get a good edge. The hill down to the overflow parking lot was snow plowed out, but still manageable and one can always take the bypass to avoid it. Was out from 5-6 pm with temps in the high 30s dropping to 32 degrees.

  I skied the Loppet course from Wirth Chalet to Uptown and back, maybe 40 km, making it my longest ski of the year. Intermittent bare spots are developing on five of the south-facing slopes. I could have used my good skis but did not expect the trails to be so good. The trails groomed around lakes Brownie, Cedar and Lake of the Isles were fast and not too icy. Watch for bare pavement entering (and re-entering) Cedar Lake from the shore. Some puddles are starting to form, nothing to worry about yet; and one puddle had an alternate path groomed around it. High school skiers started arriving around 3 pm and it was getting crowded by 4 pm.
