Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. A great last week of February of skiing in place. Typically the best of the season! Days are getting longer, sun angles are heartening and snow is silky smooth. Today we groomed all the skate lanes and set new track on JibFly, Rootin Tootin, Twin Lakes, Loon Return and Mother Hen. Monday we groomed all the double track trails, pulling up fresh dry snow. There was no rain or drizzle at Maplelag on Monday. Temperature was below freezing all day. We will continue touching up the trails throughout the week as needed.

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.
