Ski Trail Report

Trails open. Good early season conditions. We have groomed on the entire trail system after 3″ of new snow Thursday morning. A great weekend on tap for our first High School Ski Camp! (Trails are open for day skiing for non lodging guests.)

We set track on the singletrack trails this morning and combed out the skate lanes again. The singletrack trails are a bit thinner with shallow tracks but very skiable. There is some organic forest mattered scattered from high winds associated with the storm, otherwise ski conditions are very nice considering the amount of snow. Inner trails in best condition for classic.

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 you!
