Frosty conditions to start the day on Sunday. Tree coated nicely with white. Great day of skiing on tap! Grooming on the skate deck and select classic trails.
Very nice skiing on Saturday. Tracks that were reset and trails that were groomed in the early morning were nice skiing early than tracks groomed Thursday were nice skiing in the afternoon. Spring like conditions and beautiful weather to be in the woods. Grooming bringing up drier snow and slowing down the track. Overall the tracks are a bit faster from a melt freeze cycle this week but reports have all been good from the trail from skiers out on the trail. The coverage is holding out great and no reason not to ski.
Note: The inner trails will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, February 1st and 2nd for the Section ski races. We are hosting Section 8. The western trails and the northern trails will be open. Reduced trail fee for these two days.
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, Roy’s Run and JibFly. Skaters Waltz, the extension groomed for skating. Please no skating on trails other than Skaters Waltz, and the extension of Skaters. Please note portions of certain trails will not be groomed this year due to change in the lease and management on AMA property.
Total snowfall since December 15th=22″, compacted base on trail 4-7″. Snow depth in the woods 12-16″. Overall the trails have very good coverage, a few rough spots on the marsh/lake crossings to use caution, especially on the north end of Bullhead trail when accessing the Bootleg extension on Maplelag property. Total snowfall since December 1st, 28″. Total snowfall since November 20th= 30″. 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.
Current conditions at Maplelag from the Weather Underground Personal Weather Station: Note, the wind speeds are generally a bit lighter than what other sites will report. The Maplelag station more accurate to conditions in our wooded environment.
