Trail Report

A nice morning of skiing on the 8km loop we have been grooming. Fast conditions on mostly packed powder snow with a few more icy spots and thinning areas. Bit warmer today and combined with the sunshine, a few more icy spots and areas of thin cover. Still holding coverage on this 8km loop and should have some skiing this week. Chance of snow tomorrow night in to Wednesday and we will continue grooming the 8km loop if new snow does fall.

Trail Report

Very good to Excellent Mid winter. 12 degrees, mix sun/clouds off and on flurries. Grooming on 8km of trail. 5″ fresh snow past 48 hours compacted to 1-3″ packed powder on top of 1-3″ icy/frozen granular base.

Last night North Loup and the connector trail to North Loup was roll combed. A inch of fluffy snow on top this morning. Skiing was spectacular on North Loup this morning, just a few cruncy/icy spots but skiable throughout. Otherwise, very good coverage and 95% excellent skiing. We will continue grooming this 8km loop through the weekend as areas skiers have expressed interest in skiing. Not recommended to ski other trails as there are areas of standing water that have thin layer of ice with snow on top. We are closed for lodging on the season but have taken in three families displaced by the flood and prepared to take in more folks.

Fighting the Red River Flood of 2009

Thoughts and prayers to everyone involved with the Flood of 2009 in Red River Valley. The situation is overwhelming. Great job to all the volunteers and officials who are trying to save the cities and keep everyone safe. Jonell and I went up to Moorhead on March 26th to help a homeowner build a dike around their home and a few photos are posted below. If anyone needs help or a place to stay, please contact us.
