Trails are closed. The snow has melted off the trails and the frost is slowly coming out. Once the frost is out, we can open the trails to mountain biking. Even though we have had some warm days and the snow has been off the trails, the soil is the most vulnerable this time of year and important to let the trails dry out completely to avoid permanent damage (more so from motorized and horse travel). Also we have been freezing down again at nights which makes the drying process a bit slower. A good sign the trails are ready is when the ice is off the lake and ponds.
Last official day skiing on the trails was March 14th. Thanks to everyone that came to Maplelag this past season and supported the trails and Maplelag.
We are constantly working on the trails when we can, clearing deadfall, thinning brush and maintaining the trails as weather allows. As soon as the frost is out, we will begin our annual tree planting program.
Mountain bike trails will open as soon as the frost goes out. Typically this is around mid April to early May, depending on weather. With most of the snow free from the trails, it could be more the mid April time frame and possibly early April. Things can change quick one way or the other.
