Midwinter Conditions Mid-Winter Conditions XC Ski HQ

Cross Country Ski Report – Monday, Jan 30th

It is absolutely gorgeous on the Cross Country Ski Headquarters trail system! The trails are in excellent condition. We received more snow throughout the day yesterday and last night, which Groomer Butch will snowcomb this morning. He will set fresh classic tracks where needed as well. All trails have classic tracks and groomed skate lanes. We have a 4-6 inch base packed on the trails, and 8-10 inches in the woods. The Stone Turtle Cafe is open for lunch today. Come out and enjoy these long-awaited midwinter conditions!
