Ski Trail Report

Trails open After another cold morning, temp warming up to above 0 in the afternoon along with abundant sunshine making for a beautiful day on the trails. The tracks are providing good glide action now that they have set up, transformed and have been “skied in”. Humidity very low which, along with no wind to speak of, sunshine and faster tracks made for nice skiing.
