FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> Temps are hovering around 35 degrees this morning with west winds cranking along at 15 - 20 mph. High winds last night may have brought branches and maybe even a tree down on the trail. If you encounter a tree down while out skiing please contact TART and we will remove it ASAP.
Although we are not grooming today the trail should be in great condition for both skating and classic skiing. Keep it mind that we have not set tracks until you get to where the 5k branches off from the main trail. From that point on tracks are set throughout the system. We will start setting tracks at the trail head as soon as there is sufficient snow depth.
Forecasts suggest 1 or 2 mores inches tonight and a return of below freezing temps. We will be out grooming again tomorrow morning. A report will go out by 7:30 am. Peace, Glen... 01/21/21... 6:27 am ... #vasa #crosscountry #snowphotosGood morning Badgers,

FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> Good morning Badgers,
James, John and Jim have been out grooming early this morning. James reports cold temps from 10 to 18 degrees with 2-3 inches of fresh snow since yesterdays groom. They have completed the 5k and are currently at the 13k post on the 25k moving in a clockwise direction. The three amigos will finish up this morning on the 10k and the 3k. New classic tracks are being cut in throughout the VASA.
The trail is once again well covered in most areas. As you ski please be cautious around the areas with pine trees hanging over the trail. Snow can be very thin in those locations. Enjoy!

FROM Valley Spur Trail System - Hiawatha National Forest --> We received around 5 inches of lake effect snow last night and today with snow still falling at 1pm. Rolled and set track on all trails this morning starting with C and Y. Another 2 inches or so had fallen on that segment by noon. Skating would be on the soft side but the classic track was real nice.

FROM Valley Spur Trail System - Hiawatha National Forest --> Hard to believe but today was the first time this year we groomed all trails with our big Ginzu groomer. Wow! We have gotten about 4 to 5 inches of measurable snow in the last 3 days and that has allowed us to get the system in near mid Winter condition. No noticeable thin spots but there are just a few spots on some trails that have some vegetation poking through. The skiing is very nice right now.... #valleyspur #snowphotos #crosscountryHard to believe but today was the first time this year we groomed all trails with our big Ginzu groomer. Wow!

FROM Valley Spur Trail System - Hiawatha National Forest --> No grooming but lots of fun with 2 new inches of snow. Up Stairway, G Trail to Z Trail to B Trail on I Trail back to the lodge on B. Big Hills were slow so very doable. The base held up very well from yesterday. We did walk down the Hemlock Hill on Z (barely a trace of snow on it). So much fun to be on the Hills again. Tomorrow colder weather heading our way should make for a great Sunday Ski. ... #valleyspur #crosscountry #snowphotos ... See MoreSee Less

Some tracks have held up well on the south side of the downhill ski area with 2-3" of packed snow, and others not so much with 1/2-2". We were hoping that the storm heading our way was going to work in our favor, but the snow predictions aren't looking very good... #porkies #snowphotos #crosscountry
