Trail Report

Beautiful fall weather continues. Has been quite a month with slightly warmer temps and dry conditions, outside the much needed 2.5″ of rain over the weekend. The woods are vibrant will fall colors as the maples have hit their peak and the oak, poplar and tamaracks are beginning transformation. 

Thanks to everyone who came to our Fall Color day Saturday. It was great seeing so many familiar faces and new ones! We hope to have another Autumn Day in October. Stay tuned! 

Has been a warm September but cool nights highlighted by brilliant fall colors. We hit our peak on the 20th but still have most trees displaying. . We are fortunate to have a long season of color with maples first hitting their peak, followed by the oak, poplar/aspen and tamarack trees. Other species in the mix to create a nice landscape. 

We continue to work on the trails clearing deadfall and mowing in the lower areas that still have grass growing good. We have started the first stages of leaf clearing on the trails and will continue right up until the ground freezes and first snow accumulates! We try to have as many trails completely cleared and cut low so we can groom and ski on minimal snow. 

The mountain bike trails are open for ridingClick here for latest update. Maplelag trails are closed to all motorized use and closed to horse traffic. We continue with trail tuning as we constantly work on the 64km of ski trails for upcoming ski season and maintain 25 miles of mountain bike trail.

Clearing leaves on Sap Run, September 22nd, 2023. With so many leaves, we will make multiple clearings on the key trails until the snow flies. It is much easier to groom and have early season skiing when the trails are completely cleared.
