  We stopped in Isabella yesterday afternoon for late-day ski. Beautiful trees, flocked with snow. Lots of snow. The trails had been recently groomed. We saw one guy at the trailhead; we heard from three friends they'd skied there that day. It's altogether possible we were the only six people on the trails since grooming (and it was Saturday!). Lots of snow on the ground and snowing most of the time we were there, about 10 degrees colder than when we got to the lake in Silver Bay. In addition to being a beautiful place to ski, it's a super fun place to ski with kids - we think we'd last been there with a 2 + 5 year old (they moved the parking lot in 2006). We are making plans to return with our high school skier and bringing her friends. It's really a pretty magical place. This trail is beautiful and lots of maps make it easy to navigate. (You are in that spot of the state that's iffy cell phone coverage, taking maps of an unknown trail more important). Make time to get there and stay all day.

  Beautiful classic single track trails through tall pines with fabulous grooming. You can ski out the door on 35k from National Forest Lodge.

  Excellent conditions. Packed and groomed both ski and fat bike trails following cold snap and drifted snow. 10"+ base. 10k fat bike. Come spend a weekend on the trails at the National Forest Lodge.

  Skied National Forest Lodge to 3 to 17 to 15 to 5 to 13 and back. Good track set and light flurries. Swix Green Special worked decent at 10F. Last light upon return at about 6pm.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Excellent conditions. Trails were groomed on Friday. Bring your polar wax. It's gonna be chilly for a spell. New fat bike trails are packed too. Come check 'em out and give us some feedback.
