  Soft conditions. April 18th and skis still not bottoming out. Lots of red wing black birds singing to cheer us on. Owls out hooting when we left. So fun!

  Went out at 9:30 today after a great morning ski yesterday and found the trails full of frozen ski track ruts and not groomed at all. I struggled all the way out to Skyline to make sure grooming wasn't in progress since when I spoke with the groomer yesterday he said they were going to groom today. After running off the trail on the first downhill starting out because there was no smooth or soft snow to be found I decided to walk the downhill on my way back. The first time I've ever feared for my safety when I skied down a groomed xc ski run. Dangerous, not marked closed on TRP website but I feel it should be.

  Skied the ridge line and related segments from the main building this morning. Surreal experience to have in Minneapolis in mid-April. Groomer was out. One dirty patch SE of the big road intersection (Rockford and NW Bvld) otherwise flawlessly snowy trail. Deck was pretty soft but changing rapidly as snow packs down and melts. No pass needed. Beautiful tomorrow, probably, and Wednesday assuming the new snow helps cover that one bump (which, by the way, they should flatten so the groomer doesn't rip through the base in that spot?!). Pretty awesome conditions, all in all. Eat your heart out, Anchorage.

  Trails were lumpy snowmobile tracks, as I got out ahead of the groomer about 6:30 am. I was about to give up, then saw the groomer had been out so I followed the freshly groomed trail for a while. Will be nice after more grooming, but difficult skiing now.

  Packed and groomed, no classic tracks. The groomer was working while I was there at 9am. The trail is not as wide as normal but plenty wide for skating. Conditions were somewhat bumpy in places that hadn't been regroomed, but very nice after the fresh grooming. Overall, wonderful conditions!
