Ski Trail Report

Slightly warmer temps for Sunday. Little bit of breeze from the south but should diminish as the day passes. We had a great day on Saturday hosting a short notice High School ski race. Great to see everyone out. At dusk we groomed out Skaters Waltz. All other trails skiing well. Might be a scattering of organic forest matter from strong winds overnight otherwise good skiing conditions.

We have been grooming daily on all 64km of trail. Currently we have 34km of trail tracked for classic and 15km open for skating. All other trails are open for 15km of no track classic skiing. 4km of bushwhacking/adventure skiing with a skier made track (Lucky’s Loype) Thursday we packed Bootleg extension loop using Bullhead lake as an access point. Once we get a few more inches to track Bootleg, we will track a loop around the lake. Currently the lake is tracked across the lake. 

Tracks are set on Sap Run, JibFly, Sukkerbusk, Mother Hen, Poki Loki, Loon Return, Rootin Tootin, Wavy Gravy, Mother North Star, Twin Lakes and North Loup. Please do not skate on trails packed for classic. Skating on Skaters Waltz and the extension loops and North Loup only. Top choices for classic skiing are Rootin Tootin and North Loup. 

Early season conditions, the base is still thin watch for rough spots, areas of thin cover and unmarked obstacles but very skiable and reports from the skiers have been good. 

The Brant cabin is open as a warming house. The main lounge area has a Kuerig for hot chocolate/coffe/tea and there are simple snacks available to purchase on honor system.  Store is open on the weekends, usually in the afternoon.

Fat bike trails are open and groomed. Latest fat bike trail report. 

Please no walking on the ski or fat bike trails. Snowshoe trails are open but snowshoeing possible anywhere except the ski trails.
