    We did most of the runs on the east side Thursday, and the skiing was very good to excellent. Although the most of the trails haven’t been groomed for several days, they are still good and fast with excellent snow. I can speak for these runs: Northstar, cabin trail, farm, pine hill, the mogels, omega, archies swamp, big woods, the last part of…[Read more]

    Yesterday we gave the golf course another try, but left shortly thereafter. Cannot recommend it at this time due to grooming issues similar to the report 2 months ago. Bittersweet which is 35 minutes away was in good shape today.

    The Skiing Conditions were excellent Friday afternoon with an inch of fresh snow on the tracks. We skiied about half the trails and the fresh snow was beautiful, and made the tracks a little slower but once the first person through packed it, it was actually pretty fast. Have a great Ski!

  • Just came from the location. If you are coming from away, you need to know there is no parking lot yet. There is a big wall of snow covering the road at the entrance to the Republic Park. The trail is extremely icy and in need of snow. Perhaps this is because the wind blows the snow right across the field off the tracks so it is still all ice.…[Read more]

Thanks to the groomers for a job…[Read more]

    Most trails were groomed today (Wednesday) and are in very good to excellent condition. The base is a little thin and needs the “big” snow expected on the weekend but if you can make it out before the weekend, you will experience some good skiing..

    Today (Tuesday) skate skiing conditions were good in the early afternoon with the temperature between -2 and 0. Classic conditions were also good yesterday on the trails we did: North Star, Farm, Pine hill, and Omega. The snow is starting to get old and new snow on the weekend would be wonderful. I recommend skiing both the Classic and Skate at…[Read more]

Skating we did Oak which was almost completed…[Read more]
