Here’s the beginning of the Poplar Creek Trail this morning. We received quite a bit of nice, wet snow over the past days, the kind of snow that coats the trees and creates a wonderland. Unlike Grand Marais, where the initial snow apparently turned into rain and left unattractive brown snow blobs lining all the roads, our precipitation was the beautiful white stuff, thanks to our higher elevation.
Like everywhere in the state, we have a warm streak ahead in the forecast, so this snow may not last long. But both Bearskin and Golden Eagle Lodges have been out rolling and packing this snow in hopes of keeping as much as we can to begin building base.
So don’t come up skiing yet, but we’re working on it.
