[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Big Ridge Trails have not been machine groomed since reports earlier, and are now covered with a foot of snow. However, a regular skier who I met in the parking lot said he skis these trails every day. That means the trails that run around the Beginner and Intermediate loops are in excellent shape as groomed by foot. The Advanced loop has similarly groomed by foot but not as much. Logging is planned around the forest of Big Oaks in the Advanced section, but has not begun. Land Department says the trails will not be closed for logging. The Beginner Loop area has been logged frequently and you ski through aspen thicket. The Intermediate area is a beautiful mixed hardwood forest.
