3.17.2019 Spring ski conditions

The trails groomed up quite nicely this weekend.  Our new Pisten Bully has a built-in tiller, plus we had a bit of fresh snow, so Quinn was quite pleased with how good a track he was able to set in spite of the icy snow left behind by the rain a few days ago.  He and Kate skied many of the trails and reported fast but good conditions.

The week ahead is forecast to be warm and sunny.  Expect spring ski conditions. Skiing will be best in the morning, the earlier the better.  Wax for warmer temperatures.

Those of you who live in the Twin Cities saw your snow disappear rapidly over the last few days.  We have far, far more snow than most of Minnesota had, but next week’s weather will definitely change the quality of our snow. It will be hard on our side roads also, so if you’re coming up you may be happiest if you are driving a 4-wheel drive vehicle.

Here’s the latest report from our trail partner, Golden Eagle:

New Snow Last 7 days:  6.00”
Trail Base, Staked:  Average 11” – 13”
Snow in Woods, Staked:  Average 24 – 30”
Surface Conditions:  Tilled snow
Total season snowfall:  96.28”

Comments:  We are still skiing! All trails are re-groomed again today. All ski trails are now being tilled as we will be experiencing your typical March spring skiing conditions for the remainder of the year. Expect very fast trails this weekend. Base is still firm yet the surface is soft enough to get good bite with your skis. Plan to bring extra kick wax with you on the trails if you classic ski as this kind of snow wears off the wax faster than other conditions.
