A beautiful spring day. Sunny with a forecast high temperature of 53 degrees. Warm temperatures on Saturday took away some of the snow cover, bet there is still enough snow cover on the flatter/easier trails in the woods to ski. The number of thin spots have increased, but they are easy enough to go around on the flatter trails. All hills should be avoided if on skis due to thin/bare spots. The open fields that receive direct sunlight should be avoided. The surface conditions are variable, with a mixture of loose granular, frozen granular, corn snow, and sugar snow depending upon the amount of sunlight the area receives. The snow melted during the day yesterday, re-froze overnight, and will melt again today as temperatures rise from 21 degrees at 7 am to a high of 53 degrees. We have not groomed since last weekend, since we believe that doing so would just grind away the remaining snow cover. The tracks set las weekend still exist in some places, although shallower than before. All 30 kilometers of trails are available for snowshoeing. Sunday 3/31 is the last official day for the season, although snowshoeing may remain possible after that depending upon how much snow melts on Sunday 3/31.
Given the wide variety of our trails, there is something to enjoy for all ability levels. However, please note that we offer only classic (aka parallel track) skiing. We never groom for skate skiing. We have x-c ski & snowshoe rental equipment for all ages. Our "We Love Beginners" special of $30 for a group lesson, equipment rental, and use of the trails for the remainder of the day, can't be beat. Also, we encourage even those who already have some experience skiing to take a lesson, as it will add tremendously to your skill, knowledge, and enjoyment. Skiing is just much more fun when you don't fall, and we can teach you how to make that happen.
At this point in the season, conditions can change significantly on a day-to-day basis. Check back daily for updates or call 800-232-5571 for an up-to-the minute report.
Moatly sunny, with clouds increasing as the day goes on. Temperatures rising from 21 degrees at 7 am to a forecast high temperature of 53 degrees.

Failure is not the opposite of success. Rather it is a detour on the road to success.
