Trail Reports

Theodore Wirth Regional Park

Great ski this morning. Temps were about 27F so it was plenty warm. There was an event/race this morning but it wasn’t crowded. Corduroy was nice and the classic tracks looked to be in great shape. Hopefully Wirth North and the loppet trail survive the higher temps today and Friday.

Snowmaking Trails: We have all of the 7.5k Masters World Cup snowmaking trails open and groomed for classic and skate. This includes LaSquadra, Ridgeline, Trail 18, Green Meadow Loop, Twin Lake Trail with an extra loop in the meadow, an out and back section off the north side of the Ridgeline Trail, and an extra loop near LaSquadra. See Snowmaking map for information on these trails.
North Wirth Trails: We are out grooming all of the 10.6k of natural snow trails this morning. The snow coverage is very good for the most part with a few exceptions of wind blown ridges. We have classic tracks set in most sections.

City of Lakes Loppet Trail

I was able to set classic tracks on all lakes this morning. Great coverage in most places with a few bare spots to look out for but quite nice. Get and ski the Chain of Lakes.
Photos: Photoset available.
