How are your trails for mountain biking?

We don't ski, but we hike on the trails year round, so your efforts are appreciated by hikers as well 🙂

So we have 6-7 inches of fresh snow on the ground. Roads were horrible last night and parking lots might not be plowed. If you like wet, heavy warm snow you are in luck! ... See MoreSee Less

Very much skiable! Not groomed but parking lot clear.

Is it skiable?

Well the hill is definitely snow covered and skiable. We will look at grooming possibly tomorrow if conditions will allow. I will update if we do. ... See MoreSee Less

Well with settling and some melting we still have about 5 inches on average of snow right now. With snow being blown around some spots are almost bare. Unfortunately our base was mostly gone so no grooming for now. Mostly it looks skiable. ... See MoreSee Less

Awesome ski from the Sage Lake Road trailhead this morning. Except for the downhill section where a snowmobile roughed things up, it was heaven. Did all the north trails so now there is a track set. Was a lovely marshmallow-corn snow. Looks like someone else skied the south loop....

Yes, thanks for the update! Was wondering if it was skiable. My trails in our woods in Lupton were skiable yesterday, but it got too warm and was sticky...maybe I'll head over there this morning...

Was around 6 or 7 inches in parking lots should be able to find snow!!

I'm back home in west tennessee. Hope for better snow season next year

Thanks for the up date!!!
