    Rolled the trail this morning. They were a bit neglected over the past few snows. I will let them set up today. Grooming plans: Plan to get out first thing tomorrow to drag and set track.

    Outstanding skate skiing conditions at Mt. Itasca. Recently groomed with Pisten Bully. Deep, firm classic track throughout. Skate deck not icy this morning, but that could change with warm up. Get out there!

    Packed and set track on south suomi trails. Didn't do the connecting trail to orange lake road. Got stuck at the bottom of the mean hill, use caution when coming down.

    Packed and set track on amen lake trails and south suomi. More snow than I thought, so unhooked the groomer and packed first.

    Skied Doan Lake trail (left loop). High drifts on lake section, boot prints and chevron steps roughed up hill tracks. Icy, sticky depending on sun exposure. Always a beautiful day on skis.

    Stopped by early afternoon. Not groomed. Fair amount of snow over the trail by parking lot and around visitor center. Didn't look further down in the trees.

    The snow was wet and heavy when I was out. There are no bare spots. The track varies from shallow to nice and deep due to how the snow compacted.

    Prelude loops groomed and tracks set. Snow conditions were perfect midday where I had been skiing north of Marcell. I was too tired to ski again at Blueberry, but grooming looked good.

    County groomer reports trails have been packed and tracked. This nice easy beginner trail is close to GR and allows canine companions. But watch out for wolves!

    DNR alert: Groomer broke down on the trail Thursday and was retrieved with a skid steer damaging north loop 1 from Danson Road parking lot to south loop 2. Boomer Blue, Loop 3 and north loop 2 to the shelter were fully packed and tracked on Thursday and are in great condition.

    No logging quite yet other than old E/W road just south of parking lot pushed in up to loop #2. Skied entire system on excellently groomed three loops. The Sherry Lake Loop goes through two very special groups of old growth white pine and upland white cedars. Sadly, no moose tracks this time for first time in twenty years. Cross my fingers that this logging cut doesn't wipe out Stoney Ridge Loop forest. There was a DNR Fire Tower near ski trail/ logging road intersection fifteen to fifty years ago. I got in the tower forty years ago, what a view!

    Good, hard tracks for classical. I was skate skiing today. There's been no grooming for 1.5 weeks but for classic, you'll be fine. Skate skiing us only in the middle where snowshoeing and dogs are allowed. A bit mushy and slow going.
