Ski Trail Report

Trails open. Powder Day! Sugarbush Smoke Snow! Cold air and moisture making for a nice silky snowfall. Around 4-5″ of new snow the past 24 hours. New snow on top of the existing base making for excellent, near mid winter like conditions.

Grooming update: We groomed on the entire trail system today. Around 50km of classic only and 15km of skate only. We will be back out Wednesday morning grooming all the skate only trails and most of the classic only trails.

SkinnySki.Com First Hand Reports. Thanks for the reports!

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 a bit rough but much improved with the latest snowfall. Bullhead/Bootleg has now been tracked 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!
