Fresh snow! Just under 7″ of snow the past 24 hours. Grooming today on most of the trail system. Great weekend of skiing on tap! Cold temps in the forecast but nothing colder than what we have seen already and the trails have been busy regardless of the weather. Bundle up, protect the extremities, ski shorter loops and be smart to enjoy the fabulous mid winter conditions! The trails are always open and we never close them because of cold weather. We feel there is no windchill when dressed properly, skiing in the woods protected from the wind.

Total snowfall since December 15th=19″, compacted base on trail 4-6″. Overall the trails have very good coverage, a few rough spots on the marsh/lake crossings to use caution, especially on Bullhead trail. Ski with caution and enjoy!

We had a warm spell that melted most of the snow from November 20th and December 1st other than the north facing areas. First grooming of the season on November 20th after 2″ of snowfall.
