Trail Report

Trails are open! The snow has broken down completely to “corn” snow and temps below freezing  making for faster icy like conditions but still some good skiing to be had. The courses for the North Star Conference meet groomed up nicely and conditions were good to very good for the skiers. (photos and results on skinnyski.com)  We will continue grooming on select trails, mostly Thursday and Friday to improve conditions for weekend skiing.  Hopefully we can catch an inch or two of new snow to freshen up the tracks. However, plenty of snow on the trails for skiing, no bare or dirty spots. Base ranging from 8-18″.

New snowfall since January 1st around 18″. Total snowfall on the season now at 52″.

All the inner trails and Twin Lakes double tracked. Roy’s Run, Island Lake, Wavy Gravy, Bootleg extension and segments of Lucky’s Loype single tracked. Skaters Waltz, the extension of Skaters, North Loup and Suicide Hill groomed for skating. (15km) There is also a track on the side of the skate lane on North Loup.

Day pass for day use is $15.

We have been grooming the Twin Lakes singletrack for Fat Biking. Thanks Ben Olson for taking on this role and volunteering his time!  Latest trail report.

Lunch available for $10 during midweek outside the Holiday season. Email for reservations and to confirm pricing: maplelag@arvig.net
