Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. Great seeing everyone out this weekend to enjoy the early season conditions. Blustery day today with overcast conditions, a coating of flurries than clearing with nice sunshine. Cooler weather moving in after the front moved through. Should freeze down the base nicely tonight.

Trails open on early season conditions. 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, organic forest matter, etc.

Trails groomed include Sukkerbusk, Skaters Waltz, the “easy” loop on JibFly and Suicide Hill. The best segments are closer to the lodge. Sap Run was also groomed but strictly for the last segment to be used to connect Skaters Waltz and bypass the Kamkaze hill segment. The kamikaze hill segment has some rough spots and recommended to avoid for beginner skiers. Skating on Skaters Waltz and no track classic skiing on Sukkerbusk and easy loop JibFly.

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.
