Good morning! The outbound Trapper’s Cabin trail is still skiable, with mostly marginal, some good, and some sparse stretches. Fortunately, there is not much ice to be found, and the short stretches of ice can easily be traversed by double polling. The snow-moving team spread man-made snow onto the .25km Pond Loop and patched up the practice area, which are both now in excellent shape for lessons, demos, and just skiing around. The rest of the trails need more snow and are not skiable at this time. We will begin spreading more snow onto the Trapper’s Cabin trail early this week. There is no charge to ski the trails today. Join us for the Super Bowl Foodie Face-off for lunch today, starting at noon and ending when it sells out!
Today’s Forecast: Cloudy. High near 35F. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph.
