XC Skiing at Hyland Lake Park

We will take advantage of the manmade snow on 6 km of trails at Hyland. Even though most of the Twin Cities looks bare, brown, and dreary, there has been plenty of snow for good skiing at Hyland since late December!

This afternoon (2/9) I skied three laps at Hyland on the snowmaking trails, and they were in surprising good condition considering what they've been through! You can see my full report on

We'll meet in the visitor center. You can recognize me by my bright green coat.

I will plan to use my classic skis, but if anyone wants to skate ski, that’s fine, too.

There's no fee for the event, but you will need a Three Rivers Ski Pass, either annual or day. They can be purchased online or in the visitor center.

Originally I suggested bringing ice skates for use on Bush Lake after skiing, but I checked out Bush Lake this afternoon (2/9) and the ice is melted out 3-5 feet from shore, so we won't be doing that.
