We had some gorgeous days of skiing recently, with picturesque frosted trees and bright blue skies. Our guests were ecstatic about conditions.
We have a run of 3 warm days in the forecast. The Central Gunflint Ski Trail System has a lot of snow. We can lose some snow and it won’t matter. By the end of the week we’ll be back in more typical winter temperatures.
Bearskin Lodge is participating in this year’s Volks Ski 400 resort challenge, an event to see which resort in Cook County can log the most kilometers on Cook County ski trails in February.
Bearskin guests have totally risen to the challenge. Every night guests come into the lodge with their pencils, calculators, and trail maps to gleefully add up their daily totals. It’s great fun to ski on our trails, so people can accumulate a surprising number of K in a day. We’re on our 7th page in a spiral notebook of daily totals, with a few more days to go.
As of today, Bearskin guests have logged 5032 K of distance on our trails. The next runner-up has 674 K. This seems to be where you come if you really want to ski.
