Today Bob groomed the Central Gunflint Ski Trail system for the last time this winter. We didn’t quite reach the record date for our last grooming, which was April 13 a few years ago, but we did make it to Easter weekend. Not bad. Considering we’ve had snow since October 26, we’re good with being done.
We do have a lot of snow left, but it’s hard, fast and icy, and doesn’t groom up nicely anymore. If you have a Central Gunflint Season season pass you may continue to ski, but do so with the understanding that conditions aren’t great. Be careful! There’s no such thing as a gentle fall on this icy snow surface.
Bearskin will have limited office hours in April, from 8 AM to 4 PM on many days. Staff will be on site accomplishing spring tasks, but the office and main lodge building will frequently be closed all day in mid-April. If you need us, call first.
Thanks for a great winter. We’ll see you next year.
