Notes

Beginner to expert trails. 4.5k lighted until 10 p.m. Host to the annual Great Bear Chase. Up, down, turns, mixed stands of forest and clearings provide an exciting terrain for the skier. The flow of the trail is Swedetown's specialty. The trail is meticulously groomed and the addition of a warming chalet and lighted trail have made Swedetown hard to beat.

About as much fun as a person should be allowed to have. Trails were refrozen after the warm up, and they were super fast with good edging on the skate deck. Classic tracks were icy, but we were skating.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We’ve caught up with the latest lake effect bounty and are on our way back to excellent conditions at Swedetown! NOTE: the trails are currently groomed for the Great Bear Chase, so there are different tracks in places, as well as directional arrows that are for the race. Please consult a map if you are unfamiliar with Swedetown Trails, or catch one of the groomers taking care of last-minute details for the Bear Chase. The Snow Bike Trails have been dragged and should set up fairly quickly. Grooming completed at 2:00 am (Friday).

All trails dragged and ready to go! Expect to find soft conditions as this insufferable heat wave continues, as well as a fair amount of debris building up in the wooded sections. Grooming completed at 11:00 am.

The skate lanes are freshly dragged, the classic tracks firm and fast, and the Snow Bike Trails are ready for adventure! No matter your choice–skis, snowshoes, or two wheels–you’ll find excellent conditions throughout the system.

Magic carpet conditions. Perfect! About 2 inches of new snow groomed in perfectly with the substantial base. Skate deck was firm and flat, with perfect control on downhills.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trails tilled and tracked, but expect to find soft conditions with all the new snow that came down (and keeps coming!) Valley and Greenstone have been tracked with our popular "Ski with Friends" tracks: side-by-side classic tracks. The snow bike trails are being groomed, but it is slow-going with all of this snow. Grooming completed at 12:00 pm.

All trails tilled and tracked, except for Papa Bear and Powderhouse, which were dragged (but not tracked) to build up more base for the big groomer. Birch was tilled but not tracked. Conditions range from very good to excellent. Grooming completed at 9:30 am.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trails freshly dragged. Flat trails with good base (i.e., Len's Loop, Valley, Greenstone, Cedar and Tamarack) were tilled and tracked with the Husky today! The snow bike trail is down temporarily due to mechanical issues with our SBT grooming machine -- we are hoping to have a fix as soon as possible.
