Ski Trail Report

Winter not letting up with yet more fresh snow Tuesday evening. Around 5-6″ of new snow in a quick hitting system. Hard to believe it is March 22nd with the fresh dry snow and temps below freezing. The snow that fell last night was some of the best snow of the season to groom with. We worked on 25km of trail today and skiing in the morning should be incredible, especially considering the time of year. We will be touching up select trails and setting new track on Sukkerbusk, Sap Run, Twin Lakes and North Loup.

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 and North Loup. 

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. Wovlves, eagles, grouse, porcupines, fox and pileated woodpeckers some of the wildlife sighted….keep your eyes open!
