Ski Trail Report

3km of trail open for skiing. Freestyle, no tracks set.

Light dusting of snow overnight. After the snow stopped we groomed on a early season loop compressing the damp snow to the base. We were back out on this loop this morning and afternoon, grooming and conditioning the snow digging into the old base as much as we could to mix with the new snow. The base is thin with areas of thin cover with some icy spots underneath but skiable with a little extra caution.

We skied this afternoon after all the grooming and found better than expected conditions. Nice early season skiing!

The loop starts near the freight house near the lodge and includes three segments consisting of Sukkerbusk and Skaters Waltz. Follow the groomed segments using the soccer field trail to access the loop. Suicide Hill is also groomed out. The end of return of Sap Run and Skinny Field are used as connectors to access the segments. The base is hard and bumpy but the surface as some good texture and should set up even more overnight. Watch for icy areas when walking in the parking lot!
