Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. Excellent late February ski conditions. Dusting of new snow t on top of recent grooming. Total snow this week around 7″. We have been grooming daily on the entire trail system since Monday. Temps look ideal for nice skiing on the weekend, might be a bit slower with the fresh snow and cooler temps in the morning on Saturday but glide better for Sunday.

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.
