Trail Reports

Reports 1 to 10 of 10    Month: Jan | Dec | Nov
Sunday, January 26, 2020
Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Trails are mostly open and almost all are groomed for both classic and skate skiing. Snow conditions are currently quite sticky due to higher temperature which makes it difficult for a nice "glide" but trails are still ski-able.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Trails are still covered and some have been groomed for both classic and skate skiing (around 1/3 of the trails are currently groomed). Snow is wet and sticky due to temperatures but even the ungroomed trails are open for skiing. You will have to blaze your own tracks through some of the further out trails.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Both 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Trails were packed on Thursday with 3 inches of snow in most areas, some patches of grass or rocks showing, but was able to ski on all of them. Plan to groom after the next snowfall. Ski rental will be open Saturday. We will be working on grooming all of our trails through Monday. Not all of our trails will be groomed right away.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
Ski trails are not groomed but there is enough snow to ski, just not with your best skis. There is a layer of ice under a lot of the snow.

Morning
Observation 
[ Trails: Closed ]
The snow we have received is not enough to allow for proper grooming. Only 1.25" of snow was reported so in some places grass can still be seen poking through. Not suitable for good skiing.

Morning
Observation 
[ Trails: Closed ]
With the warmer weather the majority of the snow we did have has melted. Too many muddy, slushy, or bare spots to be conducive to skiing.
