      Observation 
      [ Trails: Closed ]

      I hiked the outer hiking/ski loop (Blaze) trail with my hiking poles. The City Parks Department has done a great job of repairing (patching and smoothing) trail erosion areas on steep downhills. The ski trail should be wonderful this winter if there is significant snowfall.

      Observation Secondhand 
      [ Trails: Closed ]

      Pole hiked the outer loop of Hyland today and when I got back to chalet, was pleasantly surprised to see some snow guns and several piles of snow on the lower loop. The guy at the chalet said they fired them up last night, but said he was told that it would be "nine days" until they open. I'm optimistic that something could be open by next Saturday or Sunday. We'll see...

    • Nov 21 - Baggs Field (Duluth): 
      Firsthand 
      [ Trails Open: All, B skis ]

      I skied in a trail around this baseball field (the larger upper one). It is next to Fryberger arena. The lights from the parking lot light the trail so you can ski at night. Yes it's only a loop on a baseball field but it may be some of the best skiing in town right now. It has complete snow coverage and if you break through you hit grass.

    • Nov 20 - Snowflake Nordic Ski Center (Duluth): 
      Grooming Scheduling 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]

      Note: Snowflake is open to Members Only until further notice, due to the limited groomed track and the thin, fragile base. The groomed portion of the 5K is suitable for B-skis. The 10K and Special K are more exposed, and should be skied with Rock skis, at your own risk. We won't be open to Day Pass skiers until we get our next groomable snow.

    • Nov 20 - Snowflake Nordic Ski Center (Duluth): 
      Grooming 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]

      So I went around multiple times with the groomer and now the 4K is in pretty decent shape for skate skiing there are some bare spots and there's rock showing and there are some icy spots but all in all it should be pretty good skiing. The chalet will be open tomorrow (Tuesday) and it will be a day by day thing depending on the weather.

    • Nov 17 - Snowflake Nordic Ski Center (Duluth): 
      Grooming Scheduling 
      [ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]

      Snowflake Nordic's trails are closed until we get the next groomable snowfall. The trails remain 99% covered, with an icy cap that is keeping the ground hard, but is too thin to scratch-up and make skiable. It is, frankly, unsafe as it is. The Chalet will be closed until we reopen the trails. After 10 days of unexpected early-November skiing, it is time to re-wax the skis and prepare for the winter to come. The seven day forecast is not promising, so we wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. The snow will return.

      [ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]

      We are Closing the trails at noon today, and will be Closed all day on Wednesday due to the rain and warm temps. We want to preserve the existing base, looking toward the cool-down and possible snow at the end of the week. We will post our Thursday/Friday status after the rain event departs.

    • Nov 13 - Snowflake Nordic Ski Center (Duluth): 
      Grooming 
      [ Trails Open: All, B skis ]

      A great weekend of skiing, with hundreds of skiers on our trails Saturday and Sunday. The activity has compressed the base, and the Sunday morning grooming helped to smooth it and fill thin areas. Not December conditions, but not bad for early November. Now, we see what the weather brings for the next three days. We are open 8 - 8 today, and plan the same hours tomorrow. If weather dictates otherwise, we will notify. The East HS Nordic team begins daily practices at Snowflake today. Expect lots of activity between 4 - 6 pm.

      Great Thanksgiving Day 10 K at Bearskin Lodge! Fourth time out - all have been excellent or very good! Skate deck very good a few pine needles, etc, here and there, not enough to slow you down at all. The snow was fast! We jumped in the classic track a little, the track was very good and fast. Another beautiful afternoon among magnificent tall pines! We have much to be thankful for here!

      Firsthand Secondhand 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]

      Classic skied the Summer Home Road and Campground Loop (8 km) from Bearskin Lodge. Classic tracks are firm and the light dusting of snow last night made for great kick and glide. Skaters had a firm flat surface and skiers said the conditions were great. There is no snow in the forecast and the temps are forecast to remain well below freezing which means these conditions could be pretty consistent for the near future.

      Firm and fast skating on manmade, Piston Bully groomed snow. 1-1.5 k skiable with more coming soon. We used rock skis but suitable for good skis, only a couple small dirty patches that are easily avoided. No classic track yet. Very fun!

      Grooming 
      [ Trails Open: Partial ]

      We're more than 50% done with snowmaking -- perhaps the earliest we've gotten this far. We've even been skiing on the natural snow. We will push out our piles of machine-made snow when it looks like we're safe enough from any big warm spells -- doesn't look like there will be too much of a threat of that.

      No skiing! Heavy, wet snow and freezing rain have left the trails blocked with downed trees and brush. Because weather forecasts indicate we could get more of the same in the next 10 days, we will not be making any attempt to clear them until early December.

    • Nov 14 - Willow River State Park (Hudson): 
      Observation Scheduling 
      [ Trails: Closed ]

      Hunting seasons open Wednesday, Nov. 15 for small game and archery hunting for deer. Hunting ends December 15th. This also applies to Kinnickinnic SP. Only selected areas of both parks are open for hunting. The nine day gun hunt for deer opens on Saturday. Signage is posted with a map of open and closed areas. The translation for skiers is that there will not be any kind of ski trail grooming until after hunting ends. This is not something new. In the groomers meeting, we agreed that grooming trails while the hunt was on would be sending a mixed message about hiking on groomed trails, thus, no grooming during the hunt. The grooming team may just have to send some hours pulling the drags around on Dec. 16th. Yesterday (and Sunday) I took the mower out to do some finish work since the winter rough cut was done. I wanted to get through the hunting areas of the Red and Orange trails. The mower could not handle cutting a thick mat of rough cut prairie grass on parts of the the Red Prairie loop. Where there was a previous cut for a fire break, it was mixed results on the mower. I ran the mower around the Red and Orange to cut and blow leaves off the trail. Again, it was mixed results with some leaves frozen down. The real test will be how the groomers see it in snow, and how it skis. Today a minor tree pruning job led to 4.5 volunteer hours of it on various trails. The Red Prairie loop now has a short view into a ravine. Its going to be rather rough along that edge this season since the trail cut was made this autumn. The ravine, I guess you just have to go see for yourself what is there. If you hike, it is in an open hunting area. Trail work will continue on various weekdays only and well removed from open hunting areas.

    • Nov 22 - WinMan Trails (Winchester): 
      Grooming Scheduling 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]

      All the little lake effect dustings we've been getting for the last week or so have actually accumulated enough to build a base, so today we rolled all the snowshoe trails, a lot of the ski trails and all the bike trails except high five. Tomorrow we will make additional passes to widen out the bike trails and finish rolling the ski trails. With only about a 1" deck and hard things poking through, I don't even recommend rock skis at this point (feel free to hike/bike on the ski and snowshoe trails until we start actual grooming). The bike trails are packed, have complete coverage and are in excellent shape. Plus or fat bike recommended. No hiking on the bike trail - please!

      [ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]

      We skied on 37 km of trails today, conditions were thin with a few uphills showing wear on the climbs and the normal thin areas facing south. We ended the day at 4:30 with the trails still skiable and snow covered. We will be open for skiing Friday from 9-12 CST and then close due to the warm temps and possible rain. We will reopen for Saturday at 9 AM. We will groom accordingly on Friday and Saturday and sunday and most likely close again for Monday due to the forecast.

    • Nov 22 - ABR (Ironwood): 
      Grooming Scheduling 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]

      We groomed after the snow stopped this morning. We had about 30 km groomed and 10 km have classic tracks for skiing today. We plan to groom another 7 km tonight so we have about 1/2 the 75 km of trails open for Thursday. The base is thin but very skiable, skiers were happy today. We had to use Ginzu knives today to reset the classic track which showed the base is about 2-3 inches. Most areas are frozen down well except the back stretch of Sulos and Highlands entrance.
      Friday looks to be warming up at noon and a chance of rain, with temps cooling back down for Saturday. We most likely will close for Friday afternoon based on that forecast and reopen for Saturday.

      [ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]

      We picked up another 2 inches of snow and most importantly the temps got cold. We will be re-opening Wednesday at 10 AM. I am not sure how many k or exact conditions until we groom again in the morning but I am guessing about 30 km with some classic tracks. We will be open on the Thanksgiving Holiday as well 9-4:30 and hopefully for the remainder of the season weather permitting.

    • Nov 18 - ABR (Ironwood): 
      Grooming 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]

      We groomed the 30 + km and set about 12-15 km of tracks. The snow was coating the trail fine but the temps overnight did not drop as fast as predicted. I was out tonight with the groomer and see that is not only snowing from the west but the base froze solid so we can regroom in the morning. Looks like Sunday will be a great day of skiing.

    • Nov 17 - ABR (Ironwood): 
      Grooming Scheduling 
      [ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]

      We will be re-opening the ski trails and the SKI SHOP at 10 AM Saturday.  We picked up about 1-2 inches of dense snow so far today. We plan to let this snow dry out as temps drop tonight and groom early in the AM.  I don't know exactly what we will groom and track but I will forecast : Groomed for skating River and side loops, Blueberry return Meadow Ridge, Cherry, Rascals Spanky's ,Tamarack or about 22 km. Classic only groomed with or without track, Hemlock. Jack Pine White Pine, Sunset 12 km, combo trails groomed with classic Track 15 km. I expect the trails to be covered similar to last weekend but with a few more wet spots from the warm temps. Sunday I expect the trails to be firmer, flatter and better skiing than Saturday.  Monday is forecast warm , most likely we would close again until the Thanksgiving.  Please note that we will be opening at 10 AM Saturday, 9 AM Sunday; closing time will be 4:30 PM both days. It is Deer Hunting Season on Michigan and Wisconsin, however all of the trails we are skiing are on private land where hunting is forbidden.

    • Nov 16 - ABR (Ironwood): 
      Grooming 
      [ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]

      We received about 2 inches of snow last night. We had 3 of the groomers out today in the AM. "Pig Heart" groomed up about 19 km of skating that would be mostly skiable with a good freeze on rock skis or B skis, "Honey Badger" followed setting tracks on about 10 km, she had thin tracks under the hemlocks and icy tracks in the lowalnds, "Wide Track" was on the famous Single Tracks, he groomed 11 km with the Ginzu but no tracks he reported skiable with cold temps and a bit more snow on the narrow trails. The trails need to freeze again after the warm temps. We would like to re-open Saturday for some early season skiing but it is weather dependent. We will keep the websites up to date. We will keep the Preseason ski shop sale discounts going for Saturday. Ski Shop Sale is 10-3.

      2 inches of heavier snow over a firm but thin base, with a little ice on top made for fun skating today. Classic did not look too bad, with some machine set track remnants under the new snow. Ground effect is still a thing, so there's some good balance practice every now and then.

      Much improved conditions today, due, no doubt, to the 20F low last night, a dusting of dry powder, and a new round of rolling the trails. Skate deck was good, and in some places, very good. I would still use B skis if you have them. A couple of the west side trails were open for the first time, but conditions there call for rock skis for the pine areas while the hardwood sections presented lovely powder skating.

      Fair conditions for Jan. or Feb. just fine for mid-November. Despite rain yesterday morning and temps above 0 all night, still plenty of snow because the rain changed to wet snow. Uneven skate lanes should improve with cooler temps tonight. Classic tracks set on many of the trails. All western trails remain ungroomed, possibly due to deer hunting.

      Another great day of skiing at Lappe. Plenty of people out on the trails, even on a Tuesday afternoon. Cold (-10c) and windy this afternoon, so quite a few spruce needles and some minor drifting on the trails, but otherwise perfect. About 6km, including the entire night skiing loop, has been piston bully groomed for the past week and is very firm and fast--excellent for both skate and classic. Another couple of km has been done with the ginzu and is mostly good to very good. Very solid base throughout.

    [ Trails Open: Partial ]

    Yellowstone Ski Festival organizers reported:
    Unpredictable weather conditions have allowed us at the Yellowstone Ski Festival to practice our snow dance skills and quick thinking. In an effort to preserve the snow on the Rendezvous Ski Trails, effective immediately, the race course trails, including all of Deja View, are CLOSED. Please, for the consideration of all, DO NOT ski on the closed trails.
    Tonight, we will be grooming the South Plateau Road. From the road crossing of the Rendezvous Ski Trails, there will be eight (8) miles of two classic tracks and a narrow skate lane. All skiers will still need to have a trail pass and access the trails through the Rendezvous Trail System archway. Thank you to the US Forest Service for the quick access and for closing the road to all other traffic.
    Thank you for staying for respecting the trail closures and understanding that we are doing our best to make sure people are able to ski and ski safely. Please remember this is early season and ski with the utmost caution.
