Ski Trail Report

Trails are open. Another dusting of snow overnight. The weather has settled down after two days of wind and frontal passage snow. Should be a great weekend of late season skiing with mid winter conditions. This morning we re groomed all the late season trails (see below) once again.

We have been grooming daily this week, working in the dusting of new snow and transformed snow from a melt freeze cycle on Wednesday. A few areas drifted from strong winds the past 36 hours but overall fantastic late season skiing and the Saturday morning grooming leveling off the most recent drifting.

Please park across from the Brant for parking. We have not plowed out the far lot after the most recent snow.

Trails 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. North Loup will be groomed skate starting next week.  Since temps look favorable for continued good classic skiing through the weekend, we will continue grooming North Loup classic only.

As we 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 this area to keep the dry base from attracting the moisture in the snow and icing or sticking on the bottom.

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!
