Trails are open. Excellent skiing conditions. We have been grooming steady the past few days working in the new snow from Monday and Tuesday that accumulated to a couple of inches. We are digging deep in the base pulling up snow and the tracks are setting up firm and skiing really nice. Recommended trails to ski today are the inner and northern trails as we finish grooming to the west. With cooler temps moving in for the weekend, classic skiing will be great! Lot of animals on the move and tons of tracks everywhere, especially on the inner trails. Eagles, grouse, porcupines, fox and pileated woodpeckers some of the wildlife sighted….keep your eyes open!
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 set a track on the perimeter for classic.
