Ski Trail Report

A warm day on the trails but as of 6pm there was still coverage on the trails and we are optimistic for snow tonight with accumulations possible. If any new snow overnight, we will groom if the base has froze down enough. We might need a half day to cool things down before grooming on Thursday.

We have been working on select trails this week, building up thin and exposed areas.

Grooming report: This week we are focusing on Skaters Waltz, JibFly, Sap Run and Sukkebusk for the upcoming ski camp weekend building up thin and exposed areas.

When we receive enough snow to reset tracks, classic skiing on Sukkerbusk, Sap Run, Mother Hen, JibFly, Rootin Tootin, Twin Lakes, Mother North Star, Wavy Gravy, Island Lake trail and Roy’s Run. Please no skating on the classic trails. Crossing between Twin Lakes is still rough. Take skis off to get through or possible to make a fun loop by using both Island and Wavy trails (and Twin). Bullhead/Bootleg has been packed and combed on the Bootleg extension and return. Lucky’s Loype is adventure skiing, no grooming on the AMA segments.

Skaters Waltz, the extension loops, North Loup, Suicide Hill, Single Green and Kristin’s Kutoff designated trails for skating.

All trails are one way except Sukkerbusk and Skaters Waltz. Skiing correct direction, especially in early season, helps us maintain the integrity of the base. Thank youi!
