Trails open! Great seeing folks out this weekend. Fresh snow on top of grooming Friday and Sunny Saturday! Sunday will have some icy spots to start before snow moving in this afternoon. We have been grooming on a late season 4km loop for skating/freestyle skiing after 3-4″ of new snow the end of the week.
We will have this loop open for skiing on through Easter weekend and most likely until Wednesday morning. Freestyle skiing, no tracks set. There will be no charge to ski. Lodge is closed but use parking lot near lodge. Start behind freight house, look for snowmobile and follow grooming. Ski at own risk, assume all responsibility and enjoy the late season conditions! Other trails have thin spots, rough spots, branches down etc. and not recommended to ski off the groomed loop.
With the grooming in April, this is the 6th consecutive calendar month we have groomed this season. First grooming was back on November 13th, 2021.
Season total of snowfall is at 116″ and close to the record snowfall in a season at Maplelag. Considering the dry summer and fall, the precipitation will bring the water tables back up to normal when the snow all melts and the frost goes out.
