Trail Report

About as good as it gets for a winterlike day on the trails. Conditions were pretty much ideal for the DL Invitational ski meet today. Cloudy in the morning and then clearing in the afternoon with no wind and temps in the middle teens. Teams from Detroit Lakes, Bemidji, Brainerd, Long Prairie, Deer River, Fergus Falls, and Northwest and Battle Lake hit the trails with lots of smilin’ good times. Conditions a bit soft for racing with all the fresh snow but beautiful in the woods and could of not asked for a better day. Grooming on the trails the rest of the week as we gear up for the weekend.  Select photos below from the day. More photos and results will be posted on skinnyski.com (go to racing/results and high school section)
