Looking Good

  • Underdown ski trails all got groomed.
  • Snowshoe trails all have tracks.
  • Fat biking is great to Dog Lake and not that bad to Mist Lake.

  • Ski trails look good.
  • Dog Lake is a good fat bike ride or snowshoe hike right now, but the Mist Lake loop is essentially closed because of drifting and a renegade snowmobiler who tore things up on the bog.  A hiker who knows the way might enjoy it.

An Inch or Two

Underdown has just a little new snow.

  • Fat biking the powder to Dog Lake was nice last night.  With some dragging tonight the trail to Mist Lake should be good to ride again.
  • Skiing and snowshoeing look really good.  Some grooming might happen Friday, but much is skied in already.

Still Great

  • Underdown ski trails all have nice tracks.
  • Showshoe trails are all solid.
  • Amazing fat bike conditions continue with trail open to Mist Lake for the 3rd week in a row.  The Long Bog is ride-able for anyone who can balance on a wire.

Good Snow

  • Ski trails were groomed Thursday and look perfect.
  • Snowshoe trails have tracks all the way around.  Some powder is present on the Long Bog to Mist Lake, but it's nothing to worry about on snowshoes.
  • Seven fat-bikers went around the Mist Lake loop today.  Everything was solid except for a good amount of hiking on the Long Bog.  Amazing conditions overall.
  • The trail pass rates will be what they will be for a while.  With state and county budgets as they are, user fees may be a fact of life.  $5,000 in trail passes didn't quite cover $15,000 in trail grooming expenses.  Earning a pass by volunteering or purchasing the season pass are still a good deal for a great trail.

Snow Report

  • Ski trails are in great shape including Loop Road.
  • Snowshoe trails are in great shape with beautiful snow.
  • Fat biking is great on Trails A and Z and good to the Big Bog.  Snow is solid with some slippy traction.  The Dog Lake loop is too soft now, but should freeze up before long.
  • Snowshoe hike at 10AM next Saturday.  Fat bike ride at 2:30.
