Trail Report

A great weekend of skiing so far for the second high school Nordic ski camp. Light fluffy snow fell most of the day Friday and Saturday, accumulating to an inch or two. Great to have all the skiers pack in the snow!! We have been grooming around 30km of trail each morning, working in this new snow and cleaning up the tracks and skate fairways. 60 of 64km open. 4-6″ compacted base. 45km tracked classic only, 15km groomed for skating.   We are grooming Sukkerbusk, Mother Hen, Sap Run, Twin Lakes, Wavy Gravy, Island Lake, Rootin Tootin, JibFly, Mother North Star and Lucky’s Loype for classic and Skaters Waltz/ extension, Kristin’s Kutoff, Single and Double green, Suicide Hill and North Loup for skating.
The entire trail system is open except for the east side (4km) of Bullhead lake trail. The east side is closed until colder weather, which will freeze the thin ice areas.   A nice start to the season with 24″ of snow this season, so far.  The trails are open for day skiing and the current fee is $10 to use the trails until December 20th the fee will go to $15

Track set on the side of North Loup Friday morning. Groomed and open for both skate and classic skiing.
Fresh track set on Roy’s Run Friday morning. Might be a bit soft. Good condition on 80% of the trail. Few rough spots here and there.
