Trails Open Warm day on Wednesday really softening the snow. Should freeze down tonight and we will groom on the skate trails Skaters Waltz and North Loup if conditions warrants. Conditions have changed quickly but the trails are skiable with a deep base of snow. Spring skiing conditions. Skiing is faster in the morning, softening as the day passes than freezing down again later afternoon. The best time to ski is generally from sunrise to 1pm. Skiable all day but most consistent snow is found in the morning.
We typically groom in the afternoons and evenings this time of year for best skiing the next morning.
Note: With the rapid warm up today and yesterday, the driveway is tricky driving. Best with a vehicle with all wheel drive. We plowed the road on Wednesday evening to improve the conditions.
We are closed for the season for lodging/ski packages but the trails will remain open for day skiing until a projected date of April 15th, weather and snow conditions permitting.
Grooming Report We will be grooming select trails daily this week. Sap Run and Sukkebusk groomed on Monday as well as all of the skate trails. Twin Lakes, Mother North Star and JibFly groomed on Tuesday. Trails not groomed very skiable with good coverage. We will groom more classic trails if it is meaningful to do so.
Nature Notes: Wildlife bit more active with the slow transition to spring. We have been seeing porcupines along the snowshoe trail and Roy’s Run. We have also seen hawks, owls near JibFly and North Star, fox, deer of course, pileated woodpeckers and tons of tracks. Eagle sightings near Twin Lakes return at eagle view.
