Trails are open. Beautiful mid March day in place. Good seeing skiers out today enjoying the excellent late season conditions. Today we groomed JibFly, Twin Lakes and North Loup setting track. Skaters Waltz groomed skate only. Sunday evening we groomed Sap Run and Sukkerbusk setting doubletrack. Evening ski found real nice skiing. Little soft but dry silky snow for mid March is a treat. Top pick for the morning ski is Twin Lakes. Total snowfall the past 48 hours hours around a foot. Moving forward on the rest of the season. we will be focusing on 20-25km of trail.
Please park across from the Brant for parking. We have not plowed out the far lot after the most recent snow.
Trails to be groomed for classic include Sap Run, Sukkerbusk, JibFly, Twin Lakes and the side of North Loup.
Trails to be groomed for skate include Skaters Waltz, and skate lane on North Loup.
As we slowly transition to spring skiing be aware of possible variable conditions mid day if sunny or temps near or above freezing this time of year. Waxing can make for much better ski experience, even if you have no wax skis the fish scale zone will work much better if a paste wax is applied to keep the dry base from attracting the moisture in the 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!
Lucky’s Loype and Bullhead trail are snow covered, no grooming and open for bushwhacking.
Total snowfall this season at 72″. Compacted base on trail 9-14″.
