Battle Creek

Very good.

With temperatures forecast to eclipse 32 today, I mustered myself out of bed to hit the trails this morning. Considering the amount of snow to work with, and the lack of any base on the prairie trails, Battle Creek is in very good shape, especially for skating. The classic track was set most of the course, but there was a lot of grass, ice and even some dirt mixed in. The skate trail had a few thin spots (especially on the prairie and the back hills) but nothing that can't be skated around. I'd still use my rock skis, but skiing today was definitely a pleasure.

I can only get to two trails at most, on a good day! Check out all the trail reports at skinnyski.com
