Trail Report

Still hanging on to some snow. The skiing is starting to wind down for sure but still enough coverage for us diehards to get out in the woods. Monday was an amazing day for skiing in April. The weather has been good for the sap to run from the maple trees. We no longer collect sap but many of the locals in the area collect sap to boil down for syrup. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup!! The lake is still thick with ice and we will be lucky to have ice out by the end of this month. Last year the ice was off on April 2nd! It is great to see the signs of spring. The waterfowl is on the move looking for open water (no sounds of loons yet) and the long days and intense sunshine on the clear days is heartening.

Total snowfall  this season has been 94″.   We are closed for the season for lodging but grooming select trails until the snow is completely gone. Trails will be open at no charge with no services available.  If you are a non-season ticket holder, please call us in advance if you wish to ski. 218-375-4466 or email at [email protected]
