Thursday, November 27, 2014 - Ski Trail

Crisp and cool morning with temp checking in at -15!! Slowly warming up as the sun rises. No wind. Good chance for snow tonight which would greatly improve the current conditions. We will be grooming select trails early Friday morning if new snow.

Just under an inch of fresh snow Tuesday night. The new snow was groomed and combed on Skaters Waltz, Sukkerbusk, North Loup, Twin Lakes, Loon Return and a portion of double green trail. The dusting slightly improved the conditions and we are very close to having very nice skiing. A ski patrol at lunch found fair to very good early season/rock skiing conditions with best skiing on Skaters Waltz, Suicide Hill and Sukkerbusk.

We will continue to have the trails open through the Thanksgiving week and weekend. Recommended to stay on Skaters and Sukkerbusk. No tracks set, skaters welcome to skate on Sukkerbusk. Use caution if adventuring to other trails. We have packed other trails but waiting for more snow before grooming additional trails. We are focusing on the trails groomed today until more snow.

There is no charge to use the trails and be advised the base is thin with some rough areas. Best to use older skis or “rock” skis. With that said, there is some fun skiing to be had if careful! The compacted base is 1-3″, solid and hard after a melt freeze cycle last weekend. Total snowfall this season has been 8″ of mostly light fluffy snow and snow depth in the woods is around 4″.

There are limited services available in the lodge with no lodging available until the weekend of  December 12th-14th. Just Ski!

Finishing up on Sukkerbusk. Most of Sukkerbusk in good early season condition. Few more inches and we can set some tracks in select segments.
