Ski Trail Report

Winter returns! 6″ of new snow Wednesday evening and Thursday. We’ve been grooming on 3.5k. of trail, setting track on the side of a groomed skate deck. A hard freeze after a groom last night has this loop in good skiing condition and open today and hopefully for Sunday morning skiing. The segment/loop is the east side of Sukkerbusk to the “skinny field” than a loop consisting of the north facing segments of Skaters Waltz and Sukkerbusk. Skied both directions, mostly flat loop with a few gentle rolling hills.

We had a great run of skiing in April capping off a fantastic ski season. Was great seeing so many people out enjoying the special late season conditions. Thanks to everyone who supported us this season and the trails. The fire on October 10th was a devastating event for us and the long ski season helped keep us active, restore and gain clarity as we recover from the tragedy last fall. 

The trails will open for mountain biking once the frost is out. We made great progress this week clearing about 5 miles of trail and was rideable. With the new snow and fallen branches etc, it will be another week before we can open for riding. Click here for latest update.

Be sure to check back if interested in keeping track of the transition to Spring and Summer and occasional photos of nature around Maplelag. (see bear track photos below!) 

Total snowfall this season at 96″. Current compacted base on trail 0-4″.
