We skied Biskey today and it was beautiful and had not been groomed since the new snow. Temps were 15 and sunny as we skied Eagle Ridge, Wolf Run and Black Spruce. Tracks were completely debris free throughout, mostly intact except for a few corners and pole plants were mostly firm. Lots of wild animal tracks on Blue Spruce. The big hill on Eagle Ridge wasn't too scary today either! Remember to put some money in the donation box when you go... it's all volunteers!

Week of my 70th birthday and a good time to test out my newer shoulder. First time on skis in two years. What a wonderful place for a morning glide through the woods. It was slow going, which suited me just fine for this trip. Thankful for this gem of a place and for people who can put in new shoulders!

Skied Bodley today and it was in very good condition! Very few of the corners have been washed out. My guess is they were groomed a few days ago? Worth the trip!

Despite semi-shallow tracks on a few segments, it was a great ski, fast snow, and nice folks on the trails. Can't wait to try again after a fresh groom.

Does it really get any better than this? Great grooming, deep, solid tracks and firm pole plants. Bluebird blue wax day and tight classic skiing. Fanfreakintastic!

I would say everything is open at the time of skiing (4pm), not 100% groomed but skiable. The grooming team was out in force while I was there - Thank you to those who keep the trail in such great shape! I skied out White Pine and Birch Ridge and back on Wolf Run. Wolf run was not totally groomed, but tracked decently well. A gorgeous sunny day out skiing, snow was a bit soft but it had not had a chance to set up yet either.

Beautiful day out on the trails. My poles were breaking through 95% of the time on the single track trails, the double track seemed to be packed a little better for poles. Track was clean 99% of the time and is in much better shape than trails with pines in the area with the recent wind storms.

Another dreamy day in the northland woods. Biskey trails are groomed incredibly well without debris. The tracks were deep with a few soft pole plants. VR60 made for stellar kick.

We skied Biskey today. Huge thank you to the groomers and volunteers who got rid of all the trees that fell! The tracks are about 1 to 2 inches deep throughout. Watch out on the first downhill after the parking lot, there are some footprints, some ski tracks that run off into the deep snow like a runaway truck run would, and some body imprints. The rest of Wolf Run is ok, but the pole plants are a bit soft if you get out from the middle at all. Eagle ridge is a whole different story. The pole plants are very soft unless you stick right next to the skis and even then some are soft. The uphills are very tricky. Someone walked up one hill leaving very large, very deep footprints. The trail seemed narrower than usual so herringboning was really tough especially with the 1-2 foot deep pole plants. I'm a very experienced skier, have skied this a ton, yet I ski on shorter skis and I had a tough time getting up quite a few of the hills. Beware on the downhill at Eagle Ridge... it is "wobbly", there are giant body prints in a few spots, and foot prints. Once you get into the woods part after the big hill, it is very pine tree debris filled - which was to be expected after the wind. Black Spruce was good where the pines were absent, the rest was lots of debris. The one spot with the slush is a new one, haven't seen that in the past, there is a "bypass", however, there is a piece of small tree sticking up so watch your speed. It is beautiful out there with all the snow on the trees! Remember to leave some money in the box when you go, they are volunteers and work really hard on this amazing trail!
