Snowy Sunday!! Around 7″ of fresh powder today. It has snowed seven consecutive days at Maplelag with over a foot and a half of new snow! Today we held our first ever winter bike race. We made some adjustments in the course, not knowing what to expect but the riders were incredible!, floating through the fresh snow. A small turnout but Steve Wenzel used his mad daily bike commuting skills to take the win over the top female and former pro mountain biker, Kyia Anderson. Tony Schmitz was third, Sheila Amo just edged out husband Byron and Scott MelloYellowBrook, riding a fat bike for the first time rounded out the tough group of riders. The afternoon was spent grooming in the fresh snow with around 30km groomed. Reports from the skiers all good and lots of smiling faces. Wow, what an incredible winter weekend at Maplelag. We are only open for lodging for two more weeks so now is the time to come if you haven’t been to Maplelag this season. If you already have, contact us about second visit discounts!!
We will be out Monday grooming in the fresh snow on the entire trail system.
A great day for the Lotvola Cup on Saturday! Temps in the upper teens, sunshine and fresh tracks and snow. The course groomed up very nice and conditions some of the best they have ever been! (Results posted on skinnyski and photos coming later today)
Compacted base on trail 5-10″. Snow depth in the woods 7-17″. New snowfall this week around 17″. Total snowfall this season around 36″. Despite the winter being labeled a low or no snow year, winter is full on at Maplelag!!
