Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. We’ve been enjoying a early run of fantastic spring skiing. This year is unique in that the snow we are skiing on now is the moisture laden snow from late December. The south facing areas have transformed to “corn” snow and most of the other segments in particular the north facing segments, are a silky sugary snow. Tuesday looks to be another good day of spring skiing, hard and fast in the morning than softening up as the day moves on. Also a chance of snow Tuesday afternoon with the potential of 1-4″ by Wednesday noon.

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.
