We skied on the Back 9 and in to the woods, it was fantastic. The classic track was solid and firm, and the skate lane had firmed up enough as well. Supposedly on the flat side of the bridge it was a bit softer. The skate lane had blown clear in a couple places, particularly on the old, dirty manmade snow (perhaps that's why it was thinner in the first place—we should take not and make more in that section next year), and the tracks went down to grass in a few sections, but otherwise it was just about perfect.

Paradoxically, the trail was not groomed from the end of the manmade section towards the Mound, but that was pretty well skied in (and someone had driven a sled over it as well). It should hold all weekend, so great skiing has returned to Minneapolis!
