Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. Very thin dusting of snow overnight. Excellent conditions, might be a bit slower today with the dusting slowing down the glide. Today we will complete grooming of the entire trail system once the wind settles down this morning. Yesterday all the skate trails we renovated and combed and select classic trails were reset. Should be a great rest of the week and weekend of skiing! 

A great day for the North Star Conference ski meet  on Tuesday. Crisp conditions but sun was shining. light winds and great snow. Congrats to all the skiers on job well done. 

Lot of animals on the move and tons of tracks everywhere, especially on the inner trails. Eagles, grouse, porcupines, fox and pileated woodpeckers some of the wildlife sighted….keep your eyes open! 

Trails groomed for classic and open include Sap Run, Mother Hen, JibFly, Loon Return, Sukkerbusk, Mother North Star, Rootin Tootin, North Loup, Roy’s Run, Island Lake, Wavy Gravy and Twin Lakes. For skating Skaters Waltz, the extension loops, Single Green, Kristin’s Cutoff and North Loup.

Lucky’s Loype and Bullhead trail are snow covered, no grooming and open for bushwhacking. We have packed a loop on Bullhead lake and set a track on the perimeter for classic.
