Ski Trail Report

Mild morning, temperatures below freezing keeping the base intact. We warmed up to 36 yesterday but the snow and base we have held out just fine. Today’s looks to be a bit warmer. This week we are working on a small loop to try and have open for skiing on the weekend. We also have groomed out a loop on the lake for skiing. We will continue working on the loops today.

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. We mow and blow leaves off the trail repeatedly so we can have skiing on minimal snow.

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″.
