Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. Happy Valentines Day! No precipitation at Maplelag today as of 6:00pm. Keeping an eye on the radar as it looks to snow this evening with 1-3″ possible by Wednesday noon. Today we groomed all the skate trails and touched up Sap Run, the connector to the western trails and portions of Sukkerbuks.

We’ve been enjoying a early run of fantastic spring skiing and good to see a few folks out this week enjoying. 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.

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.
