Trail Report

A great day of skiing on tap. Grooming on most of the trail system this morning after a dusting of snow yesterday morning. We groomed the new snow in to the skate trails (Skaters Waltz, Single Green Hill, Suicide Hill, and extension) and North Loup which is groomed for skate and classic again. We also set new tracks on Sukkerbusk.  Having the transformed snow as a base to mix with new snow makes for ideal grooming and skiing and responds to any warm weather more favorably.  Conditions are excellent at Maplelag! There is no reason not to ski so come out and just ski!

Trails that have been groomed and open with tracks set: Sukkerbusk, Twin Lakes, North Loup, Rootin Tootin, Mother North Star, Sap Run, Wavy Gravy, Island Lake, Roy’s Run and JibFly. Skaters Waltz, the extension groomed for skating. Please no skating on trails other than Skaters Waltz, and the extension of Skaters. Please note portions of certain trails will not be groomed this year due to change in the lease and management on AMA property.

Total snowfall since December 15th=23″, compacted base on trail 4-7″. Snow depth in the woods 12-16″. Overall the trails have very good coverage, a few rough spots on the marsh/lake crossings to use caution, especially on the north end of Bullhead trail when accessing the Bootleg extension on Maplelag property. Total snowfall since December 1st, 29″. Total snowfall since November 20th= 31″. We had a warm spell that melted most of the snow from November 20th and December 1st other than the north facing areas. First grooming of the season on November 20th after 2″ of snowfall.

The trails are open for public day skiing. Trail access pass is $15. Ski rental is $15 a day. Lunch available for day skiers during the Midweek by reservation. Contact us to reserve and for pricing.
