Trails are open. Very picturesque morning with frost and snow covered trees. Welcomed cooler temps today helping tighten up the snow and deck. We have been grooming daily on some portion of the trail system. Great conditions with lots of snow. Snow skiing silky smooth albeit a bit soft. A few more sticks than usual after last weeks storm and wind events but nothing to prevent great skiing. We are constantly clearing and cleaning to have the best conditions possible.
Classic only trails recently groomed include Sap Run, Mother Hen, JibFly, Loon Return, Sukkerbusk, Mother North Star, Rootin Tootin, North Loup, Island Lake, Wavy Gravy and Twin Lakes. We have set only one track, setting best line to avoid over hanging branches etc. For skating we have Skaters Waltz, the extension loops, Single Green, Kristin’s Cutoff and North Loup. Expect soft conditions skating, best trail to skate is Skaters Waltz.
Total snowfall this season at 38″. Compacted base on trail 5-10″.
