Trail Report

Morning low at 19 with no wind. Cool temps and drier air setting up this weeks grooming perfectly. Fantastic skiing conditions. Reports from the Friday skiers all most excellent including local skiers saying best conditions of the year. We groomed on most of the trail system this past week, mixing new snow from Wednesday into the existing base of transformed snow. The mixture is ideal for grooming and skiing, especially if it warms up. The base is dense and compacted so any warm up the snow handles it well making for better skiing versus dry fresh snow which can be sticky. Forecast calling for high of 38 today but there will be plenty of great skiing all day and no reason not to ski. Just ski.

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 and North Loup groomed for skating. Please no skating on trails other than Skaters Waltz, North Loup and the extension of Skaters. North Loup also has a track set. 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=23″, 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, 29″. Total snowfall since November 20th= 31″. 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.

The trails are open for public day skiing. Trail access pass is $15. Ski rental is $15 a day. Lunch available for day skiers during the Midweek by reservation. Contact us to reserve and for pricing.
