Trails open. Merry Christmas! Very good ski conditions. After a very early morning temp of 37, temp has been falling during the morning and snow is dry and silky. The transformation of the last snowfall to a silkylike sensation and daily grooming has conditions the best of the year. Not the best they can be per the groomer’s standards, but the best of this season.
Grooming update: We have been grooming daily resulting in the entire trail system being groomed 1-4 times the past five days. Tracks now set on Bullhead return and the Bootleg Extension loop. Singletrack classic trails groomed Thursday morning. Trails are in great shape and the groomers will be taking a break on the 24th and 25th. Grooming will resume on Sunday the 26th. Since we started grooming on the 12th of November, we have only missed a few days and those days were usually spent shoveling on thin areas etc.
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!
Trails are open for day skiing for non lodging guests.
