Incredible conditions for late March. We continue to groom 25km of trail for late season skiing. 10km skate, 15km classic. With slightly warmer temps forecasted for Saturday, be prepared for changing conditions in the afternoon otherwise great late season skiing. The 6″ of snow that fell Tuesday night was some of the best snow of the season to groom with, still a bit soft but for third week of March hard to beat and not icy!
Grooming plans: We plan to groom on the 25km of trail that is currently opened Friday and Saturday afternoons. Should be a great weekend of skiing!
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!
