Ski Trail Report

A nice cold start to the day with morning temperature checking in at 7 degrees. Trails are now closed to preserve the base and coverage we have on the trails. This week we are working on a small loop to try and have open for skiing on the weekend.

Early Saturday morning we received 3″ of snow and groomed out Skaters Waltz and Sukkebusk and enjoyed early early season conditions. Good to see a few other folks out. With warmer weather in the forecast later in the week, we did not groom additional trail.

Bike trails  are now open for fat biking/winter riding. Riding allowed on the Twin Lakes and Bullhead Bootleg loops. The inner trails are closed until the base is set up for skiing.  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.
