Snow and Trail Conditions Update
As of 3/6/2023:
Not much to report. Groomers have been out steady since Tuesday. Monday's rain didn't hurt too bad and we got some fresh snow Wednesday. I believe everything has been groomed at least once since Saturday.
Expect a lot of traffic. It's a beautiful time of the year to ride.

Cross Country Ski Trails
Trail ConditionsExcellent conditions to begin Sunday morning. Thursday evening's grooming held up well throughout the weekend. And as is often the case, even though the parking lots may appear busy, the skiers seem to disappear and there's plenty of room to enjoy some fantastic skiing, bird song, and solitude. Grooming Plans We'll see how much snow we received Sunday night & Monday morning, and watch the temps, then decide when to groom the new snow. There's a significant snowfall in the forecast for later this week -- we'll probably limit grooming of the Monday snowfall to packing of the new snow -- and plan on setting new classic track in time for weekend skiing. BTW - Saturday I measured 18 inches of compacted base on the East Side bridge at intersection #25. Don't pump up your bike tires yet, we should have decent skiing for another few weeks.
Ladysmith Area Trails report:
Sisters Farm trail update- We groomed the West side trails today and with the 3 inches of new snow we were able to set a good track for skiing and have a great base for Fat tire biking and snowshoeing. The East side will be groomed tomorrow and should make for great skiing this weekend. Just a quick reminder to try and use the trails while the temps are below freezing, with the warmer temps in the forecast we can maintain our base longer if it doesn't get rutted during the time temps are warm. Thanks and get our and enjoy the trails while you can!
