Daily Trail Conditions
Update 11/16/2018: Soon, but not yet. We are fielding calls and e.mails inquiring about the snow. We did get some snow out of this last storm but not enough to do much with just yet. It's still early for nordic skiing on natural snow but not to early to start thinking about it. Keep reading...
Now is a great time to buy your Season Pass or Discount Trail Pass Booklets. Discount Passes are only on sale until November 30th. The Preseason Season Pass Sale ends as soon as we get enough snow to open for skiing. Don't gamble with Mother Nature, buy your season pass now online!

Last winter was a great winter. We skied almost straight through from Christmas to Easter thanks to some very savvy grooming and the investments made in lighter grooming machines and trail prep so we could make the most of early and mid season minimal snow. And then there was March!
We'll continue to invest in trail prep this off season; our goal is to be able to open at least 20 km on very minimal snow.

Skate skiing and new snow tip: New snow is great for classic, not so great for skate. If it's too soft, the glide is slow, your skis sink and you have to work hard to move forward. If you are looking to skate ski after fresh snow, check around and see who has used a tiller. The tiller knocks all the air out of the snow and packs it a little harder, but remember, new snow still needs time to set up. The deeper the snow, the longer takes. We don't use a tiller. We love the feel of new snow and classic tracks. There is something dreamy about an old loved pair of wood skis on fresh new snow. We are ok with letting the snow to marinate over time before it's ready for skating. Sometimes this can take a few days. If you are not sure, and we haven't posted - just give us a call and we'll give you the skinny on the skiing :-)
Warm sunny weather tip:
Wear layers! Be prepared to peel as you get warm. Cotton will absorb sweat and get clammy. It's not the best layer next to the skin. Bring sunscreen and a water bottle.
Cold weather tip:
With the cold weather you need to wear lots of layers. Skiers have been staying warm when they dress for the cold. Wool, or tech fabrics work best next to the skin. Warm insulating layers and wind layers over top. Prepare to peel if necessary; you will create heat. It's better to be over dressed than under dressed. We have tons of hand and toe warmers if you need them.
