Ski Trail Report

Trails open.Very light dusting of snow overnight. Forest is flocked with snow and frost and the trails are skiing very nice. Today we tracked Roy’s Run after spending the past few days clearing deadfall and pushing back overhanging branches. Groomer’s choice is Sap Run for classic. Great day yesterday for the JV/JR High race. Nice job to all the skiers.

Trails groomed for classic and open include Sap Run, Mother Hen, JibFly, Loon Return, Sukkerbusk, Mother North Star, Rootin Tootin, North Loup, Roy’s Run, Island Lake, Wavy Gravy and Twin Lakes. For skating Skaters Waltz, the extension loops, Single Green, Kristin’s Cutoff and North Loup.

Lucky’s Loype and Bullhead trail are snow covered, no grooming and open for bushwhacking. We have packed a loop on Bullhead lake and will be setting a track on the perimeter for classic.

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