Trail Report

Bit cooler day on  tap after a balmy day on Tuesday with temps right around 30. No new snow overnight. Yesterday we packed and combed Island Lake, Wavy Gravy and Roy’s Run. We did not set a track but these trails are still open for skiing, just a few rough spots on the marsh areas.  We also combed on Skaters Waltz and Suicide Hill. Skating in the afternoon was awesome. Skaters and Suicide in fantastic shape. Grooming on Skaters Waltz again this morning.

A great MLK day of skiing. We hovered right around the 32 degree mark with no melting thanks to overcast skies and cold frozen ground. Sunday going down as the best day so far this winter. What a fantastic day of Nordic play!! More trails tracked and all skate trails groomed in the morning. Absolutely no wind, 28 degrees and afternoon sunshine making for a most incredible day. Great reports from the trail with North Loup and Twin Lakes getting the top reports. Track set late Saturday night on North Loup, full depth and just a few leafy areas but overall some great skiing. Sukkerbusk has been skied hard but holding out great.  Skating very good on Skaters Waltz and good on the extension and North Loup.

There are still a few rough and thin spots but the new snow Saturday morning helped out nicely with the coverage. Overall, skiing is good to very good with scattered fair spots. Compacted base on trail is 2-4″ and snow depth in the woods is 3-6″. Total snowfall since January 1st is 8″. Around 23km tracked for classic, 15km groomed skate and all other trails have a skied in track on top of a packed base or in virgin powder. A few trails in the AMA area will not be groomed this year.  Check the trail report board in the main lodge for the latest trail information.

The trails are open.  Trail passes are $15. Ski rental available at $15 a package. During mid week, lunch and trail pass package available. Call 218-375-4466 or email at maplelag@arvig.net for more information
