Ski Trail Report

Trails open Slightly cooler temps today in the lower 20’s will make for really nice skiing after temps near 30 yesterday. Although there wasn’t any melting, the humidity was high and the snow was very buttery like. Note: We have a ski meet on today on Sap Run, Skaters Waltz and Mother North Star. (Due to COVID protocols lodge is closed for any services) All trails outside of the race course open for skiing today. Use Sukkerbusk to access all the western trails, northern trails or JibFly and Rootin Tootin.

Grooming update: At least some portion of the trail system is being groomed daily and usually the entire trail system groomed every 3-4 days. We have groomed every day so far on at least one trail, since January 1st. Track cut on North Loup yesterday and groomed for both skate and classic now.
