Minnesota Northeast


    Iron Range area

    [ forecast/conditions ]
    • May 9 - Mount Itasca (Coleraine):
      [ Trails: Closed, Bare ground ]

      A bit of snow left at Mt Itasca. Nothing to ski bet a remnant of a long winter. Will be back in about 6 months.

    • May 6 - Flathorn-Gegoka Trails (Isabella):
      [ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
      Firsthand: Classic 

      I wasn't sure it was true but Isabella's northwoods are still an island of the year end snow. We had a great ski today on the east side trails, with a pair of fish scale and a pair of skin waxless skis. About 95% snow coverage, with a few short patches of pine litter to cross. RIver crossings, however, were barriers with flooding at the Little Isabella culverts and bridges. We are done for season, but there may still be a few more days of fun.

    • May 3 - Flathorn-Gegoka Trails (Isabella):
      [ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
      Firsthand: Classic 

      It's true, the skiing is still worth it on these trails. I skied the central trail segment (Jensen Trail 10-11-12-13-14-15-17-18). The only bare stretch was at the Little Isabella bridge/crossing. Otherwise there still is a foot of snow. More debris on the trail that the report from May 1 suggested, but most was embedded in snow and didn't slow me down.
