Ski Trail Report

Frosty haze snow this morning as a cold front continues to push through. Around 2″ of dry fluffy new snow the past 24 hours. Yesterday we started grooming in the afternoon and resumed in the evening as the temperature dropped nearly 20 degrees. A good time to groom to get the most out of the snow and have it firm up! We are back out on the trails today packing and combing. The new snow improving the conditions and we are getting closer to setting track on some of the trails. We did set a track around 75% of Sukkerbusk. Shallow track with some thin areas.

Select trails are open for skiing. Early season conditions, watch for rough spots, areas of thin cover and unmarked obstacles but skiable on most trails.

Recommended skiing on Sukkerbusk for no track classic skiing and Skaters Waltz for skating. People have been skiing on the other trails, use extra caution on the downhills for rough spots etc.

Please do not skate on trails packed for classic. Skating on Skaters Waltz only. 

Trails are closed to hiking at this time to preserve the base. Fat biking allowed on side of Skaters Waltz to access singletrack as part of the “FatLagChilada” course. Fat bike trails are open and groomed. Latest bike trail report. 

Sunday we packed on the western trails and Monday we cleared and packed on the northern trails. All the trail have now been packed.

Trail passes can be purchased on the products page.

Maplelag current conditions including data from the new Maplelag weather station can be found on the Weather page. Total snowfall since November 1st at 10″. Current snow depth is 2-5″.
