Ski Trail Report

Low temps in the upper teens froze the base and coverage we have down hard overnight. Skiing this morning was good spring conditions mid morning on the loops and segments we are focusing on that have the best coverage. This afternoon we were back on the trails shoveling on select segments. We are focusing on about 5km of trail that consists of the east side of Sukkerbusk and Skaters Waltz. Sap Run can be used as connector to make a loop. Skiing allowed both directions, skate and no track classic.

We will continue to have the trails open, hopefully through the Saturday. Best time to ski is mid morning and we ask people be off the trails by 1pm to preserve the snow and hopefully continued skiing through Saturday morning. We are not able to set track. Skiing possible on other trails but not groomed or patrolled and ski at own risk, use extreme caution. Some spots have good coverage, other areas are bare ground. If you need to walk, please do so on the very side of the trail.

Fat bike trails are closed until consistent cold weather returns. 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. 

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 12″. Current snow depth is 1-3″ and compacted base on trails is 0-2″.
