ALL GROOMING IS WEATHER DEPENDANT AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
The grooming schedule we try to adhere to is:
Groom Como each day before 8am
Groom Highland each day before 9am
Groom Phalen each Tuesday and Thursday mornings along with one time over the weekend
If weather effects the condition of the trails (such as a heat-up and cool-down) we will try and groom all trails as soon as possible.

Cross Country Ski Lessons
Como Park Ski Center's Classic Style Cross Country Ski Lesson program features a progressive skill level series to accommodate all abilities and experience levels, from beginner to advanced. The series is set up so each lesson builds on the one before so the skier will become progressively better.
Private lessons, covering more advanced techniques and Skate Skiing techniques, are also available.
Lesson Fees do not include equipment rental.
