  Just under 2" of snow so far this morning, looks like another inch to come. Grooming on all the double track trails first this am than continuing on most of the trail system. New snow mixed with the frozen granulated snow should make for very nice skiing today. Enjoy!

  It's another nice day on the trails at Maplelag! Classic tracks on North Loup and Roy's Run are in very good shape, as is the skiing on Twin Lakes, Island Lake, and Wavy Gravy. Both Roy's and North Loup were fine and fun to ski. After skiing the Twin/Island/Wavy Trails, my choice today would be Twin Lakes or Island Lake Trail. The last portion of Wavy Gravy (after crossing back from the Island) that received sun exposure so the track developed some glazing; I would try the other trails unless you enjoy a good herringbone.

  Good to excellent conditions. The trail system groomed up nice the past few days. Temp swing of 50 degrees made the snow hard and crunchy in some areas but grooming pulled up drier snow deep in the base on the classic trails and reports from skiers today all good. The skate deck is super fun, just enough new to mix with the frozen granulated to provide a really fun surface to glide on.

  Despite temps in the mid 40's today, the snow and trails held out great thanks to low dew points. Jonell and I rode part of the fat bike singletrack late afternoon to check conditions and found the deck solid. A ski on the main trails later found everything looking great. A few areas glazing over, naturally, but the skate deck was looking really nice and tracks were fantastic. So nice to be recreating in the warmer temps!!. Grooming on tap for the morning to bring up drier snow and mix in any new.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Fantastic conditions. Dusting of new snow overnight. We groomed the skate only trails including Suicide Hill this morning after the fresh snow last night. We only groomed a couple classic trails, leaving the dusting of new snow on top to insulate the firm, well defined and rock solid classic tracks that are skiing great and were subject to -24 temps yesterday morning. The classic deck should weather any warm temps tomorrow better than opening the base and allowing warm air to penetrate into the base. The trails will be open tomorrow, regardless of the temps but latest forecast looks to be cooler now anyways. The fat bike conditions are the best of the year, many locals opting to ride and waiting for temps to warm up before skiing again. Entire ski trail system on tap for grooming Thursday and Friday. Fat bike loop grooming planned Thursday night.
