Trails are open. Roller coaster weather winter continues with temps climbing above freezing today. The new snow got a bit sticky and interesting conditions with the old snow. All good, Just Ski. Cooling down at dusk and should be cooler on Sunday and more consistent conditions, bit harder and faster. Saturday evening we groomed all the inner skate trails and set new track on Sap Run, Sukkerbusk, JibFly, and Wavy Gravy. These trails groomed will be top picks for Sunday and bit more softer and forgiving 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.
