Trail Report

Winter weather in place. Coldest temps of the season today with early morning low well below zero! Warming during the night but still well below normal. Cold temps are welcomed at Maplelag to help freeze down the ground and prepare for snows to come.

We packed and combed out the new snow that fell on Wednesday night on the early season loop  we have been grooming the past week. Frosty morning  Wednesday with trees covered beautifully in white. Cold temps freezing over Little Sugarbush lake the morning of November 6th. Frost setting down in the ground with this cooler weather and key component for next snowfalls and preparing the trails for skiing.

The dustings of snow last week provided just enough to pack out a early season loop and we were able to get out for a ski a few times to enjoy the snow! The trails will be closed to the public during deer hunting season which runs November 4th-12th.  The trails will be open again the weekend of November 17th.  Total snowfall this season has been around 5″ with 1-3″ currently on the ground/in the woods. The mountain bike trails are closed for the season but will open again the weekend of November 17th (weather permitting)  for fat biking/winter riding.
