Ski Trail Report

The trails are closed to skiing.

Trails are covered with a rock solid ice/crust base of 1-3″ from snowfall earlier in November. Out of caution, we have the trails closed due to icy conditions, areas of thin cover and scattered open spots.The trails we groomed the past few weeks have the best coverage and just an inch or so will allow us to open these trails again.

We had great early season run thanks to 6″ of snow the middle of November and was good to see so many people out. We will continue to work on Skaters Waltz and Sukkerbusk, patching thin areas. We are grateful to have the coverage as it won’t take much to open the trails back up!

Fat bike trails remain open (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.

Building up high use/exposed areas on Skaters Waltz, November 22nd, 2021. We do not make snow or have plans to do so. It does not fit our sustainable models. Instead we use the available sources and make the most of it!
