Trail Report

First frost of the season this morning. Lows down to the mid 30’s cool enough to touch the low areas and roofs with white.

Last week of September starting out like most of September….spectacular! Always one of the best weeks of the year. Pleasant temps and dry conditions. Just a few passing showers Saturday morning measuring at .12″ in the rain gauge. Beautiful fall colors started to emerge more and more each day. The woods still very lush and green with not as much color as seen around the lodge. 

It has been busy summer and start to fall on the ski and mountain bike trails mowing/brushing and constantly clearing deadfall and cutting/splitting firewood. We will continue working on the trails up until the snow flies! A few storms and wind events this summer bringing down the usual amount of trees, no structural damage to any buildings. Overall, the summer has been slightly above precipitation with average temperatures at Maplelag making for great conditions for trail work.

Mountain bike trails are open, weather permitting. Click on the mountain bike report for latest conditions. Trails are closed to horses and motorized use.
