1.26.13 A great weekend to come out and ski

1.25.13 from Dan Baumann

Conditions are outstanding on the trails.  What a great weekend to come skiing!  Warm up by the fire in our Main Lodge, and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, or a bowl of chili or chicken wild rice soup. Wine, beer, pop, and snacks are available  in the Main Lodge.

Ski passes for the Central Gunflint Trail System are available at both Bearskin and Golden Eagle. Our parking lots may be somewhat busy today, so if you decide to park anywhere besides our lodge parking lots, be sure to ask for a parking pass for your car. Groomers will be out on the trails today checking for ski passes.

Here’s Golden Eagle’s grooming report from Friday afternoon, after the grooming on both sides of the system was completed:

New Snow Last 24 hours: 2.4 inches

New Snow Last 7 days: 6.35 inches

Trail Base: Average 6 to 8 inches

Snow in Woods: Average 14 inches

Groomed with classic tracks: 65K

Groomed for skating: 70K

Surface Conditions: Powder, Packed Powder

Snowshoe trails: Open

Total snowfall since November 1: 34.23

 Conditions: Good to Excellent

Comments: Both groomers have been out since this morning and the whole system will be groomed today. The trails are in great mid-winter shape.

Please check with Golden Eagle Lodge or Bearskin Lodge for specific conditions and information on each trail.

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.
