Snow and Trail Condition Updates
As of 3/2/22:
County trails are open with occasional closures. All Rusk Co trails got absolutely hammered yesterday. Thank you all who made Rusk Co your riding destination! It was awesome to see so many sleds in our area. There are a few groomers out this morning trying to pick up the pieces.
Why were some trails rough this weekend? Obviously a ton of traffic but also it was 45 degrees last Sunday so we couldn't clean up Saturday's moguls before we got 8" of snow. So most trails only got 1 pass over it did not have time cut moguls or to set up as good as we wished. Trails should hold up better after next couple passes as we work new snow in and they have some time to setup!

Cross Country Ski Trails
Blue Hills Trails report:
Good skating and striding, all the trails are open. We've started freeze/thaw cycles that produce fast morning conditions after an overnight freeze. Sun exposed trails have a fast crust until temps rise and the sun hits the trails. Try to catch the magic window between icy conditions and sun warmed sticky trails.
Ladysmith Area Trails report:
With the new snow last night the groomers were out in force today. Jim groomed the East side trails for skiing and reports they are in excellent shape. Dave groomed the West side this afternoon for skiing, fat tire biking and snowshoeing. With tonight's colder temps. the trails should all set up well and be firm and fun for the weekend. Get out and enjoy some winter fun on the trails. Remember please no hiking on groomed trails without snowshoes. Bikers and snowshoers be respectful of the set ski tracks when out on the trails.
