      I checked with Brad Meyers of the city’s Park and Rec department and he said the season typically ends mid-March. It all depends on snow cover.

    2. Hi: Last year the cross country ski trails closed February 18th? Ended up being about the right time due to warming temps. With the lower temps & continued snowfall will the cross country trails continue to be groomed? Is there a planned End of Season? Thanks! Kim
