Trail Report

First accumulating snow! Just over 3″ of snow Friday evening. Cold temps overnight freezing down the base a bit and keeping the snow in place and setting frost down a bit which is a great start. Having frozen ground before snow comes is ideal scenario. Chance of more snow later today! Great to see the ground covered in white and the nature of the snow covered the trees and forest beautifully.

We have had a fantastic fall of trail work and continuing this past week up until deer hunting. The trails are now closed during deer hunting season. We will open the trails again when there is enough snow to groom for the ski and fat bike trails. Lodging for the winter season operations will begin the December 17th weekend. There is no lodging available for winter operations before that but if skiable snow, we will have the trails open for day skiing.
