Just wrapped up grooming the 7 to 12 inches of snow. It should be good to go for a Boxing Day ride. The lower elevations will be firmer and the higher elevations might be softer. Some of the newer trail sections are a touch hairy(vegetation), lumpy, and uneven. More snow will be needed before attempting to smooth out the trail.
Opening Day!!! December 26th at 9:30 the lifts will be turning. See you all tomorrow! Limited runs available.
The fresh snow that we got over the last couple of days has turned our trails into a winter wonderland!
The classic only trails have been tracked. The skate trails are still being worked on but will be ready soon.
Just like you we are eagerly awaiting a big snowfall so we can get the trails groomed and get out skiing! Rumor has it that a few die hard skiers were out on their rock skis last week.
Our volunteers, coordinated by Bayfield Nordic, have been working hard all summer improving existing trails, and building some fantastic new trails too! Check out our newest trail, Grand Tour, that starts behind the Big Top tent and brings you all the way to the top of the mountain with gradual climbs and scenic views, traversing maple, oak and evergreen forests.
Yesterday some grooming was done and it skied really well but the conditions are going to be variable day to day. We still have plenty of snow on the trails and if you can time it right you will have a good time but it may only last a few hours any day. We are not setting classic tracks so Skating is best or classic without good tracks (the tracks in the photo are old). The photo is from yesterday afternoon which was good skiing.
We work hard to keep our reports current.
