We received about 7-8 inches of precipitation yesterday – a mix of snow, ice pellets, and just ice. While the un-groomed snow on the trails is skiable now, it is still too wet for us to groom today. Tomorrow (Monday) morning, however, we will attempt to roll in tracks, and pack and snow comb the skating lanes, starting with Rolling Hills, Wild Turkey, and Trapper’s Cabin. The store will be open tomorrow from 10:00am to 4:00pm as well. Hopefully driving conditions will have improved greatly by then! ... See MoreSee Less

Winter is back.... If you still have the itch to enjoy the snow, feel free to get those XC Skis and snowshoes out. The trails are open for all to enjoy. We have summerized all of our grooming equipment and have in storage, so we will not be grooming.. Downhill and Tubing operations will not resume until Winter 2018-19. ... See MoreSee Less
