Trail Report

Ski trails are open. Early season conditions. An inch or so of new snow today falling on top of the crusted base. We have around 10km of trail roll packed and combed for early season skiing. No tracks set, freestyle skiing. Watch for thin areas, rough spots etc. We will groom Thursday morning on the trails we have been grooming this fall. The new snow and grooming should help improve the conditions.

Trails groomed include Sukkerbusk, Skaters Waltz, the “easy” loop on JibFly and Suicide Hill. The best segments are closer to the lodge.

Fat bike trails will be opening this weekend(Click here on trail report). Lodging for the winter season operations will begin the December 17th weekend. There is no lodging available for winter operations before. Day and season passes can be purchased here. NO services in the lodge at this time. Park in far parking lot where recycling and porta potties are located.
