Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Good skis ]
  We are¬†going to close the ski trails Feb 21-22, Tuesday and Wednesday, due to the rain and "unsafe" and variable conditions. This is very unusual for ABR to close the trails during the main season. We make this announcement early in the evening so that traveling skiers can amend their ski plans for the next two days. We hope to reopen for Thursday, stay tuned. We still have the trails snow covered and the forecast is favorable.

Grooming Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We had another day of spring skiing today. Skiers reported that skiing was super fun and fast on the ground up corn snow from 9-12. Skiers also enjoyed the warm skiing at 45 degrees, on a firm base from 12 - close. We groomed all 73 km of trails last night and this morning including power-tilling all of the wide trails with the Pisten Bully and power-tilling the narrow trails with the Alpina¬† dual track and Alpina small tiller and track-setting with the "Ginzu" Groomer and Bearcat. We will continue to groom for the next several warm days with lighter equipment and limit our open trails to the more gentle terrain so that the more expert trails keep their snow. (It is difficult for the groomers to climb hills in the softer conditions and it is easy for the beginner skiers to snow plow the soft snow off the trail). So we will be skiing on River Trail, Popple, Pit, Memory, Bachelors, Sulos Cherry, Blue Berry to the shortcut, Meadow and Tamarack and Hemlock and Jack Pine/WP, Rascals and Spank's. That is 20 km of skating and 31 km of classic.
We do have one small cabin open for next weekend and the Hantala House. Pre Season Season Pass Green Banana sale is on along with the ski shop sale!

  Awesome spring skiing at ABR. Skied both classical, and skate. It got pretty mushy after noon, but it felt so good skiing in shirt sleeves.

  Beautiful conditions, we started at 9 am, it was about 28, grooming was great as usual for ABR. We used waxless skis and conditions were fast. Sun was out and warmed up pretty rapidly. When we finished at noon it was 50 and getting slower. To bad the warm stretch is so many days. They have a good base and Eric know how to work his magic with the snow. Spring skiing conditions for now.
