Great start to ski camp! Trails holding up great to skiers on the trails and the lake providing very fun conditions for ski games and technique work.
2″ of new snow past 24 hours. Most recent grooming on Skaters Waltz, Sukkerbusk, Sap Run, JibFly and Twin Lakes. Track set on Sap Run and Sukkerbusk Friday evening. Track set on start of Twin Lakes but need about 1″ more snow to set all the way through. Skier made track on side, still nice skiing. Thursday we groomed on the inner trails and also cleared and packed on Island Lake and Wavy Gravy trails. No track set but open for classic skiing with no track.
25km of groomed trail now open for skiing. Skaters Waltz open for skating and Sukkerbusk and Sap Run track set. All other trails open for no track classic skiing. Be advised there are areas of thin cover in the start area and open but in the woods skiing is to very good to fair for early season. Recommended trails to ski include Sukkebusk and Skaters Waltz.
In total we have packed on 55 of 65km of trail. Snow depth in the woods 3-6″, compacted base where groomed 2-4″. Multiple dustings of light snow this week bringing season snowfall total to 9″ (since November 1st) Trails not groomed (Roys’ Run, Bullhead) providing a bushwhacking type experience. Use extra caution if skiing these trails until groomed. At Maplelag the trails are maintained in such a manner that they are skiable on less snow. Even though our snow totals might be lower, we can provide good skiing on less snow.
The Twin Lakes singletrack open for fat biking again this year.
