NORDIC REPORT: New Trail Signs have been installed! Grooming Report: Thursday Night-- Abbey Road, Jolly, Northern Lights, Skid Road, Telford, and Seagull Connector were groomed with new track set. Conditions are very Good with all trails open and 99% safe for good skis. The trails have great snow cover with a firm pole plant. The summer trail work has left some isolated high spots that are now mostly showing up as thin spots in the classic tracks but easily avoided. Friday morning grooming plans include: Anchor, Seagull, and Buzz. Friday PM all the Classic only trails will be groomed with new track set. The weekend will be great skiing. (photos are from this morning)
FAT BIKE: Conditions are excellent!!! Trail is firm & PSI could be around 4, but varies with rider weight, etc. If you're a newbie... it's safe to say, if you are punching through the top crust- you should take out some air. #protip !

Cross Country ski trails are in very good to excellent conditions for the Holiday weekend. Classic only trails were groomed with new track set on New Years Eve. Abbey Road, Northern Lights, Skid Road, Roller Coaster, and The Buzz have been re-groomed skate/classic. It's a beautiful sunny day, hope to see you on the trails. Remember if you'd like to give it a try, we have classic rental skis available during lodge hours.
As of 1/1/21 @ 12:30pm: All 6km of Ashwabay Fat Bike Trails are groomed! Conditions are soft. Use low PSI! There were couple of riders out while I was grooming and they seemed to be doing ok once they adjusted tire for the conditions. **Note the trailhead location is different location. Look for the billboard sign in the parking lot, kind of near the chair lift.** Enjoy!
12/30/2020: 8” new snow. All alpine trails are open. Paddle tow is open!
