Still quite good, a few thin/icy spots but great for a ski in March.

The skating at Wirth was great today, and the striding track looked surprisingly good. A few areas which were sheltered were still completely powdery, the others were transformed but not yet icy. The grooming was generally quite good. On the front nine the railroad bridge was thin, as was the bridge over the Parkway. Otherwise, you could use good skis with a ton of caution, but I wouldn't suggest it. It's good rock skiing conditions.

I was able to exact revenge from an event on these trails when I got to pass Caitlin Compton on the trail—as I remarked it was "probably the only time I'd get to [do that] this year." And I may have said it before but I'll say it again—there is nothing like skiing at dusk and coming through the trees with the lights of the Minneapolis skyline shimmering in the background. It's just fantastic.

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