Trail Report

Slightly cooler temps to start out Friday with low checking in at 15 degrees+.  Light winds and sun/cloud mix. We will be combing/packing select trails this morning. No new tracks to be set as not quite enough new snow to do so. Still some nice skiing to be had with tracks on Sukkerbusk and Twin Lakes, a skied in track on the outer trails and packed/combed on inner for no track classic. Skaters Waltz in good to very good condition for skating and Skaters Extension and North Loup fair to good for skating. Few rough spots on North Loup to look out for. North Loup open for no track classic skiing as well.

A great day for the DL Invite. Temps in the mid 20’s and light wind. Great job to all the skiers today. (Photos from today) The trail held up great with over 200 skiers from 7 different schools. The trails used were skaters waltz and the end of Sap Run.

The trails are open for skiing. We set track last Friday on most of Sukkerbusk and Twin Lakes. Sukkerbusk is in the best condition with nice tracks on the east side. Just a few short sections we did not set track  on the west side as the base is thinner. Twin Lakes has a few more longer spots of no track. The trails were well used last weekend and a few thin areas have appeared but this dusting of new snow will improve the tracks set.   There is some adventurous skiing to be had with caution on trails like Roy’s Run, Island Lake, Wavy Gravy and Bullhead.

The base is thin with areas of thin cover, rough spots and unmarked obstacles. With that said, people are getting out and having a great time in the woods. Just Ski!!

Trail passes are $15. Ski rental available at $15 a package. During mid week, lunch and trail pass package available. Call 218-375-4466 or email at maplelag@arvig.net for more information.
