Ski Trail Report

Select trails are open after 3″ of new snow and grooming. Around 7km of trail is open. Very thin base, random rough spots but skiable. Recommended for experienced skiers. Good seeing a few folks out on Sunday. All of Sukkerbusk and the east segments of Skaters Waltz using Sap run and the Skinny field for connectors.  No ski rentals available. We will groom more trail if forecast and conditions are favorable. This week we will be working on the above trails, building up the base where possible.

Great to see white again after a warm week. The frost is still holding in the ground and there is 6″ on average of ice on Little Sugarbush. 

 Bike trails  are now open for fat biking/winter riding. Please note the signage and tap for the “dirt” season is removed but the main singletrack sections are signed.

Season passes can be purchased on the products page. 

It’s been a fantastic fall working on the trails. We have been working on the outer trails most recently, finishing Island Lake trail, Roy’s Run and Bullhead Bootleg extension. After not being able to clear the Bullhead Bootleg extension in recent years, we are are excited to groom it again this year. 

A wintery start to November with 3″ of snow one week ago. 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! Snow on November 9th with 1″ falling. After melting out, snow returned one month later on December 9th with a few inches falling and bringing out season total of snowfall at 6″.

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