Midwest Grand Prix SuperTour Trail Reports

Monday Race Report from Ken Patzoldt at Mt Itasca:
Cool temp and light snow falls continue to keep Mt Itasca’s 3+K of World Cup trails in excellent condition.  The 12 to 18 inch man made base is grooming beautifully with the Piston Bully and skiing is very fast.  No reports of ice, rocks, grass, or other debris ..... just great conditions for both classic and freestyle.  Preparations are well underway for this weekend’s SuperTour and CXC races.  We all look forward to hosting you!

Tuesday Race Report from Scott Wilson at Telemark Resort:

I skated all of the scheduled race trails today with good skis. Snow is thin but nicely compacted with all new Tidd Tech corduroy. Right now the classic race would be run on a man made loop to ensure full depth tracks. 3 snow guns are running full time in this cold weather to ensure ample snow for the stadium and classic trails. The 1.2km sprint course is completed with man made snow and was all bladed out today. Tomorrow the Birkie Piston Bully is coming in to till all of the existing man made snow. Predicted snow that looks solid for the next week includes 1-2” on Thursday and 1-4” over the weekend with “substantial snow” of 3-8” on Tuesday. Just in time to buff out the trails and make for another great CXC SuperTour at Telemark Resort.
