Ski Trail Report

Trails are now closed. Warm weather moving in to start the week. The snow from last week has melted off. It has been an up and down “spring” so far with temperatures. We continue to freeze at nights which is slowing the drying process but certainly not unusual consider how snowy March typically is. 

The bike trails are now closed until the frost is completely out of the trails, hopefully in 4-6 weeks. A good indicator is when the ice is off the lake.  Latest update on the Bike Trail Report.

Although this year was one of the lowest snow years to date on record, it was an opportunity to learn more about grooming, preparing the trails for winter and being prepared for future low snow years. For as long as we have been grooming, every year is different and what makes it interesting and enjoyable! 

Thank you to everyone that has visited us this past year from the overnight guests to the day users. We appreciate it very much! 

We will continue to update daily as we enjoy sharing what is happening on the trails, weather and nature. 

On a side note, this winter with low snow and frozen ground has been favorable for cutting deadfall and windblown trees from storms and wind. Most of the woods we use for the wood fire stoves and campfires at Maplelag but bigger logs that have are not rotten we use for shelving, tables and other projects!

Sauna firewood for next season. 
Harvested oak logs from storm blow down cut and ready to be hauled back for projects.
