Ski Trail Report

Trails remain open. Conditions are hardpack/icy after freezing down hard after a four day period of above freezing temps. The good thing is the base is holding out well and the coverage is good. Just an inch or so of new snow and we should have good ski conditions again.

Best coverage is on Sukkerbusk for classic and Skaters Waltz for skating. Even with icy conditions, we will keep these two trails open for anyone wishing to ski. No grooming planned other than on Skaters Waltz we will build up the base in a few spots this week and work on tenderizing the deck.

Has been a nice start to the ski season with good early season conditions. Great seeing so many people out so far this year, thanks for the reports and purchase of season passes. 

Total snowfall this season at 10″. Compacted base on trail 1-4″.

Winter operating plans include to operate for day skiing on the the ski, snowshoe and fat bike trails. (Trail maps posted here) Similar to the COVID season, there will be no services available. Parking in the far lot with portable bathrooms.No lodging or meal service. Starting Thanksgiving weekend we will have the Brant cabin available as a warming area with restrooms and sitting area and tables. There are no ski rentals available. 

Ski trail season passes can be purchased on our website. (scroll down to bottom of page) Purchasing season pass helps with operating and maintenance costs to prepare the trails, equipment repairs to the grooming equipment and property taxes. Thank you. 

Select fat bike trails have been groomed and are now open.

Sukkebusk trail, November 27th, 2022. Coverage on Sukkerbusk remains good, icy and fast conditions until more snow.
Skaters Waltz, November 27th, 2022. Last nights grooming leveled the deck but hardpack/icy fast. Good coverage throughout. Dusting of snow will greatly improve conditions. We will continue grooming Skaters this week, building up thin areas in the process.
