1.20.13 Better day than we expected

Maybe a -15F start to the day, with a predicted high of -5F, isn’t your idea of a “better than expected” weather day, but  today is much more pleasant than we thought it would be.  The crazy winds have calmed down quite a bit.  The snow is still coating the trees and when the sun pops out from behind the clouds later this morning, the world is going to be beautiful.  We even had an incredibly vivid sunrise this morning.

The groomers are out on the trails.  If you plan to ski, dress for more extreme cold and perhaps plan to get inside often.  We’ll have a fire crackling in the fireplace and hot soup ready to serve.  Sunday is the best day to buy soup at Bearskin because Chef Scott Bergstrom always makes us a fabulous soup to serve on Saturday night, and we usually have some to sell on Sunday.  Today the soup is Italian Sausage, Wild Rice and Tomato Soup — a little spicy, perfect for warming up after a cold ski.

We also have hot chocolate with maple cookies, wine by the glass or the bottle, and an array of interesting beers available in the lodge.  Warm up with us.

About Bearskin

Once upon a time Sue McCloughan was a K-6 media/technology specialist, worrying about bar codes, book budgets and barfing 1st graders. On July 20th, 2007, Sue, Bob, Kaitlin and Quinn McCloughan bought Bearskin Lodge on the Gunflint Trail near Grand Marais, MN -- and all Sue's worries changed. If she seems somewhat incoherent while writing this blog, it's because her already overly taxed mind has been preccupied learning about potato salad, pea gravel, turbidity, crawl spaces, off-peak heaters, lake structure and antiquated front desk cash registers.
