After 1.25″ of rain yesterday, Thursday starting out clear and sunny with gentle breeze from the south. The rain has really brought the woods to life and are as green as ever. The low spots on the trails are holding water including the bike course with a few spots of standing water but the singletrack and other trails in good shape. When it dries up a bit more, we will mow the course. We have put signs out at the key intersections and have been fine tuning the trail when we can, mowing and blowing leaves and sticks off the course. Please drop us a note if you have questions about riding. There is no trail fee to use the trails and no services available at the lodge with the language camps starting now.

On April 25th and 26th, a late season Spring Storm dropped almost 2 feet of snow at Maplelag, burying the cars around Maplelag that were attending a retreat. A few photos around the cabins.
A great weekend of skiing on the trails. Not taking anything from the other weekends so far this year but possibly the best so far this year with the temps climbing into the lower teens, light winds and plenty of sunshine. All the trails groomed before and over the weekend. The only trail not groomed is Bullhead which is on the list to see some work the early part of this week. Thanks SW for the Euro blend. The trails will continue to see almost daily groming the rest of the season!! Skiing has been rated good to excellent. Some of the classic trails still have a few sore spots, mainly on the southern exposed hills over the 58km that has been groomed but all in all things are looking great. There are about 50km of trails with tracks for classic 8km groomed for skating. The compacted base on the trails is 2-4″ and snow depth in the woods is now around 5-7″. Total snowfall this year has been around 16″. The old wood fired sauna has been “stoked”, the ice skating rink is in good condition, and the sledding hill is open with some fresh snow to play in.
