Ski Trail Report

5km of trail open and groomed. Light fluffy snow falling all day with an inch or two bringing our storm total to 5″. Feels more like middle of January today! We have groomed a 5km loop multiple times (no tracks set) and is now open for skiing. We groomed on this loop again today, packing in the new snow late morning and again later afternoon. All things considered great late season skiing!

Should be nice late season skiing in the mornings this week. The loop is the same loop we groomed the end of season. Segments of Skaters Waltz and Sukkerbusk using the North Loup and Sap Run connectors to make a loop. Basically follow the grooming, ski either direction. A moonlight ski on Monday found really nice conditions for this time of year.

8km of fat bike trail open and groomed.  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!
