This last bit of snow has improved trail conditions remarkably.  With the forecast for more snow throughout the week, we're going to keep up with grooming and try to get one more week of skiing in.

Much of the system was groomed for classic and skate today with a few trails closed.  Conditions for skating are good, classic tracks have been set with variable quality but definitely skiable.  We're about it for snow in Minnesota, so let's enjoy the spring skiing while we can.

We have some really great skiing at Pincushion just now.  Something over half of the system is open, with trails closed due to down trees.  The trails that are open have great skating lanes and new classic tracks.  Be ready to follow the grooming rather than the trails, and enjoy some great skiing this weekend.

Our snow is holding up very well.  All of the trails were groomed today with new classic tracks and reconditioned skate lanes.  Conditions are very good right now, maybe for just a few more days.  Get some great spring skiing in at Pincushion.

All of the trails at Pincushion are newly groomed.  Skate lanes are in good condition, classic tracks are OK, with ice clumps on some of the tracks.  One more groom should clean those up.  See you on the trail.

Our Pisten Bully is finally up and running, and all trails are groomed.  With the new snowfall all of the trails, both skate and classic are in the best shape of the season.  Not to mention how beautiful the system is with the fresh snow.  C'mon out.

We continue to groom trails in windy conditions.  The Overlooks, Snowmen, Lynn's Loop and Pinchushion Mountain are combed for skating.  Classic tracks are generally windblown, but we'll continue to reset them.  All trails should be open tomorrow.

All classic tracks have been reset, and they should have set-up nicely overnight.  The skating deck got a good combing,  all trails should be in good shape for the weekend.  

We'll be doing some daytime grooming next week in preparation for the Sunday, February 14 Family Ski Festival.  We hope to see you there.

Three inches of new snow at Pincushion.  It was too warm to groom last night, so this morning we tracked Upper and Lower Snowmen, East and West Overlook and Pincushion Mountain Trails for classic skiing.  The same trails were combed for skating, and we made a quick combing pass on North Advanced.  We'll finish grooming tonight as the temps are supposed to drop to single digits.  Enjoy your ski.

A little snow goes a long way.  All trails have been combed for skating and classic tracked.  Skating should be good, classic will be the best of the season so far.  See you out there.

The heavy, wet snow we received yesterday and last night has transformed into crystalline snow for good grooming.  Upper and Lower Snowmen, East and West Overlook and Pincushion Mountain Trails are all newly groomed for classic and skate.  Classic conditions have improved considerably.  The remainder of the trails will be groomed tonight.  Enjoy the cold and snow.
