No news in March is good news on the Central Gunflint Ski Trails. It snows, we groom, it snows again, we groom again. Nothing has changed significantly, other than that we get more snow every few days.
We’ve had some years where the snow melted during the first week of March. You can safely believe that melting is not an issue for Bearskin at this time. We had -28 degrees this morning. It should warm up this weekend a bit, but it’s still unquestionably winter up here. This will be a fantastic weekend to be here skiing, perhaps perfect — fresh snow, warmer temps, and a nice forecast.
Don’t forget, Bearskin serves soup and chili in the lodge every weekend. Plan a lunch date in with your ski trip! Or stop in at either lodge for a big cup of hot chocolate — tastes great after a day out on our beautiful trails.

Comments: We received a little over 2.5” of fresh snow yesterday; all trails have been freshly groomed again today, March 4th. Beautiful “March” weather is expected in the upcoming days and through the weekend with temperatures in the mid to upper 20’s – what wonderful conditions to spend your time outside skiing! Trail conditions are still fantastic, both for skate skiing and classic skiing!
