Swedetown - All trails tilled and tracked--the Husky was out working all this new snow in, and conditions are excellent at Swedetown! The Snow Bike Trails should be soft but rideable with the best riding on loops 1, 2, and 3. We will continue to groom till the trail firms up a bit. You might have to earn your turns but it sure is beautiful on the trail! The Multi-use (Dog) Loops were packed and rolled yesterday, and ready for adventure! Grooming completed at 9:00 am.

Greenstone Loop and Valley Trail were nice with lots of fresh snow. Due to a groomer breakdown, the Bear Chase loops weren't groomed in the morning.

All trails were dragged and tracked, and the Multiuse (Dog) Loops were dragged as well. We’re getting back into good/very good conditions, although some might argue that are trails are in excellent condition! The Snow Bike Trails were groomed on Tuesday and should be setting up nicely. Grooming completed at 9:00 am.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
A little bit goes a long way! New snow means that all trails are dragged and tracked; conditions will be a little soft until the new snow sets up, but skiers should find the trails greatly improved after the recent snow drought. The Snow Bike Trails have been packed as well, but will be somewhat soft until the snow has a change to firm up. Low PSI is recommended to ensure no damage to the trails. Grooming completed at 10:00 am.

All trails dragged and the classic tracks are holding up well. Grooming completed at 10:00 pm on Sunday evening. With just a little bit of new snow and colder temperatures, the trails at Swedetown are looking pretty good! All trails were dragged, including the Multiuse (Dog) Loops and Snow Bike Trails. The classic tracks and skate lanes have set up well following the higher temperatures at the end of last week, and skiers can expect to find conditions firm and fast!

Swedetown has been great this entire weird season. We skated 15.5 k today and the trails were fast and lovely. A few sticks on Papa Bear but easy to avoid. Ed’s was super.
