Trail Report

Trails are now closed with MN firearm season starting this weekend. In respect of local landowners and guest safety, we close the trails on Maplelag property.

A  wintery start to November with 3″ of snow on Monday evening. Snow falling on top of frozen ground and was enough reason for an early season groom! We enjoyed a couple days of early season skiing and good to see a few other people out! After the deer hunting season, we will plan to open the trails again around Thanksgiving time….hopefully for skiing and fat biking!

Even though the final fall trail work is on hold, it is always exciting to see white and gets us excited for the real snow soon to come! Leaf clearing on hold for now but we are still out on the trails clearing deadfall etc. 

Maplelag current conditions including data from the new Maplelag weather station can be found on the Weather page.

Season passes can be purchased on the products page.
