A chilly but great weekend of skiing. Nice job to all the folks who hit the trails including the ski teams that were on the trails from 7am to 11pm! We had the coldest morning of the season on Sunday morning at -24.5 but with no wind and sunshine following and temps near 0, a super day on the trails. Good to excellent ski conditions. Classic skiing has been nice with the colder temps and firm and solid tracks. A few scattered rough and thin spots but overall reports have been good. Thanks for those that have filed a report.
Trails that have been groomed and open with tracks set: Sukkerbusk, Twin Lakes, North Loup, Rootin Tootin, Mother North Star, Sap Run, Wavy Gravy, Island Lake and JibFly. Skaters Waltz, the extension and North Loup open and groomed for skating. Please no skating on trails other than Skaters Waltz, the extension of Skaters and North Loup.

Total snowfall since December 15th=12″, compacted base on trail 3-5″. Overall the trails have good coverage, a few rough spots on the marsh/lake crossings to use caution, especially on Bullhead trail. Ski with caution and enjoy! Total snowfall since December 1st, 18″.
