Trail Report

Good to very good ski conditions. Grooming on most of the trail system this week.  With colder temps the deck is a bit more firm/hard.  Classic tracks in great condition and holding shape nicely.

Skiing has been very nice and reports from skiers have been good.  Wind with storm two weeks ago bringing down a lot of leaves and frost bringing down some twigs but grooming cleaning up the tracks. Great weekend of skiing on tap.

Fun day for the 25th annual DL Invite and using Sap Run, Mother North Star and Skaters Waltz. Nice job to all the skiers. Click here for photos and results.

Plenty of deep compacted base to work with grooming  (5-8″, snow depth 10-16″) to provide good skiing conditions. 15km of skating options, 55km of tracked options. Adventure trails (Bullhead and Lucky’s Loype) with challenging conditions currently, use caution across the board!

 Ski rentals available for overnight guests. Day pass for non overnight guests is $20 and can be purchased online.

Total snowfall since November 1st around 26″  Total snowfall since October 1st around 34″. October snow melted off but currently the packed base on ski trails snowfall is 6-8″.  Please no walking or hiking on ski or bike trails.

FAT BIKE (3.8″ tire width or wider please) trail on Twin Lakes singletrack open and riding well. Latest report click here.
