Seasonable weather back in place after a mostly dry and mild week. A few light rain and snow showers, accumulations minimal. Hard freeze and frosty white conditions on Saturday morning with temperature down to the low 20’s.
A great week for final fall grooming on the ski trails. With the unusually dry conditions this fall, we have been able to clear on the entire trail system after the leaves have come down. Having select trails as clean as possible allows us to open for skiing on minimal snow. Still a few scattered oak trees holding leaves that will come down later otherwise trails are in great shape going into the winter.
With MN firearm season this weekend, next week and following weekend, we have suspended trail work until after deer hunting season The trails are closed to day use until Thanksgiving weekend, weather permitting.
Winter operating plans include to operate for day skiing on the the ski, snowshoe and fat bike trails. Similar to the COVID season, there will be no services available. Parking in the far lot with portable bathrooms.No lodging or meal service.
Ski trail season passes can be purchased on our website. (scroll down to bottom of page) Purchasing season pass now helps with operating and maintenance costs to prepare the trails, equipment repairs to the grooming equipment and property taxes.
