Trail Report

Just a few dustings of snow to report this week. We are waiting for more snow to groom and open the trails. The temps have been plenty cold!  The lakes, ponds and sloughs are making good ice which is great before the snow comes and we have been enjoying ice skating on the lake and skiing on the lake as well. Skiing on the lake is “fair” with a very thin cover and best skiing is on edges. Little Sugarbush has been “noisy” as the ice expands and contracts! We have been taking advantage of the dry weather and working on the trails, fine tuning here and there, clearing deadfall and putting up signs. There are sections of crusty snow patches here and there with Twin lakes trail holding the most snow and also Suicide hill. It won’t take much snow to open up Twin lakes and the other trails are in great shape as well. Signs of wildlife seen in the woods with tracks, beaver activity and the winter birds making sounds.

We received 4″ of snow mid November and were able to groom and ski about 10 days, including on Thanksgiving,  before most of it melted off.


Ice skating has been great on the lake! Many full moon nights this past week.
