Trails and Conditions Report

Snow Report Latest Update: 3/29/21
New Snow last 7 days Thanks for a great season! Our winter season officially ended on 3/28. The snowpack will linger for a few weeks but is already getting a bit patchy and inconsistent. At this point people are welcome to hike on the snowshoe trails at no charge but we ask that you don’t walk on the ski trails to help preserve the remaining snow for our die-hard skiers. Snowshoes or MICROspikes are still recommended but not required and will be available to rent until the snowpack diminishes further.
New Snow last 24 hours N/A

Skate/Classic Ski Trails

Skate/Classic ski trails are groomed in the winter season to accommodate skate skiing and classic skiing. These ski trails are approximately 16-feet wide with classic track set when possible on one side and the remaining area groomed to a corduroy finish. We typically groom either the evening prior or in the morning, conditions and weather dependent. Dog Trail and some of the trails to the North are now Fatbike and Dog-friendly (see the chart below). Please note that dogs MUST BE ON LEAST AT ALL TIMES. Fatbikers should be conscious of their speed and ride respectfully and under control, and PLEASE do not ride in or across the classic track grooves.

Snowshoe/Multi-Use Trails

Multi-Use/Snowshoe Trails are open to all users. Multi-use trails may be packed by a snowmobile to accommodate snow biking and will not be groomed for classic or skate skiing. Dogs may use all snowshoe/multi-use trails as well. Fat Bike tires must be a minimum of 3.8″ in width. Electric Fat bikes not permitted.

SKI TRAILS

Ski trails will be updated as soon as our groomers are able to determine our conditions and relay that to the lodge staff.

We kindly ask that you help keep our limited staff free to help guests by using this page and online weather forecasts for updates about snowfall and ski conditions as opposed to calling the lodge.

Note: a few ski trails on the northern end of the trail system are now fatbike-friendly 🙂
