Notes

A great mix of beginner and expert ski trails. With the inclusion of the Jerry Jolly Trails there is about 25 km groomed for skating and classic. There is also an additional 15 km of classic only trails. With views of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, this is a very scenic area to ski. There is a nice lodge which sells snacks and food as well as a ski patrol and small downhill area.

Mt. Ashwabay trails are in great condition! Enough base to last quite a while. Note the yurt photo, the second placed here by Bayfield County, rented through Airbnb. Priceless view of the Apostle Islands.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Figured this morning might be the last chance for a stellar classic xc ski. Skied from about 9:45 to 12:30 again. The conditions were perfect for spring skiing, the weather was tropical, the scenery was second to none, and the groomer was waving to me at the start! 42 km just happen and it felt like 30 km. At 9:45 the tracks were slightly glazed, hard and fast with enough kick to get up all hills. Throughout the hours the tracks softened up, kick increased, and glide continued to be great! By noon it was getting soft, but still holding up well. Hopefully, this isn't the end of the season.... But, if it is my Brooks are ready to run and my Giant is ready to ride. Ski on.

Went skiing today expecting okay spring conditions and I was pleasantly surprised! Classic skied 42 km from 9:45 am to 12:30 and the conditions were excellent! It was the kind of ski were the weather is unreal, glide was awesome, kick was solid enough and I developed a perma-smile from the feeling. The groomers have been keeping up with the conditions great! By noon the snow was a little soft, especially on the Buzz/ south facing side of the trails. I look forward to taking advantage of the weather and another morning ski tomorrow if the temps are right!! Ski on.

Hard to describing how great the conditions are in Bayfield right now. Major improvements to the overall trails and grooming compared to my last visit a few years ago.

Skied 34 km today from 11 am to 1:30 pm. Spring skiing is here! The classic tracks were excellent, especially in reference to temperatures near 45 F. Glide was fairly good and kick was good! I used Fischer twin skin carbon pros.. Around 12:30 pm the tracks started to soften up a bit, and by 1 pm slushy slow areas were developing. By 1:30 pm it was soft enough to call it a day. Planning on a morning ski, could be the best for firm snow. Ski on.

Conditions are excellent with a 6-12 inch base. Sunday night Scott flat dragged and tracked Sugarbush Classic, Seagull Classic, Oppedahl's, and the lower Sugarbush Classic trails. Early Monday morning The Beginners Loop, Anchor, Seagull, Roller Coaster, Jolly, Skid Road, Abbey Road, Seagull Cut-Off, Northern Lights, and Buzz were groomed and tracked. Scott thinks the tracks he set Sunday night could be the best of the season. The weather looks ideal for this first week in March.
