A fantastic Presidents weekend of skiing! Thanks everyone who came to Maplelag and patronized the trails. Clear with intense sunshine on Saturday with cool temps after a morning low of -24. Tracks were firm and snappy. Sunday saw fresh snow with over 2″ of new. The new snow was groomed in throughout the entire day, some trails 2-3 times with most of the trail system being groomed. Balmy temps on Monday but below freezing capping off a full plate of great skiing over the holiday weekend.
Tuesday cooling back down and snow drying out after clear skies early and upper teens for temps. Grooming on select classic trails this morning.
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, North side of Bullhead lake trail and the Bootleg extension, Roy’s Run and JibFly. Skaters Waltz, the extension and North Loup groomed for skating. Please no skating on trails other than Skaters Waltz, North Loup and the extension of Skaters. North Loup also has a track set. 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=33″, compacted base on trail 7-10″. Snow depth in the woods 18-30″. Total snowfall since December 1st, 39″. Total snowfall since November 20th= 41″.
