Trails are taking shape nicely with daily grooming after 8-9″ of snow last weekend. We started packing select trails Saturday night and have been packing and grooming daily since.
Tracks have been set on Sap Run, Sukkerbusk, Mother Hen, Poki Loki, Mother North Star, JibFly and Twin Lakes. Skating open on Skaters Waltz, North Loup, Single Green, Suicide Hill and Skaters Extension trails. Groomed/combed for no track classic skiing on Roy’s Run, Island Lake, Wavy Gravy, and Rootin Tootin. Lucky’s Loype and Bullhead Bootleg trails skiable but recommended to ski after more snow. Good to excellent early season conditions. A few bumpy spots and a few thin areas but overall great skiing for early December. We will continue packing and grooming on the entire trail system the rest of the week.
With high water tables, there are a few low areas with flowing water that we have managed. Use caution on JibFly low area and Sukkerbusk on the one low area in between the road crossings.Bullhead trail best to wait to ski until colder weather.
We had a good final weeks clearing on the western trails and North Loup. Lots of deadfall from October storms we were able to finally clear.
