Battle Creek

We probably should have gone to Wirth. The conditions at BC are decent, but deteriorating. It is showing that a) the base is thin and b) there is no pisten bully able to churn up the ice. The snow is clean, but rather icy. It could definitely use some snow.

After hearing that Wirth was very good, we went to Battle Creek mainly because the traffic through Mpls was rumored to be bad. It sounds like Wirth was better, but BC is still in skiable shape. The lighted loop is definitely showing wear and tear—there are a few more icy patches showing up, but with skis with a decent edge you can get a nice skate in. The classic track looks rather okay as well. It's by no means perfect, but it's pretty good for what we have. Two inches of snow and it would be superb. Still, it's definitely skiable.
