Comments: All trails are open – great conditions all around! Ski trails are freshly groomed again with the recent snowfall, which totaled a little over an inch of accumulation. The weather has been cold, though it does look like temperatures will be rising for this weekend! The trail base is firm and is averaging a solid 5 inches in depth in most places. We’ve now received over 35 inches of snow on the year and are looking forward to a season of great skiing! The Gunflint Mail Run is this weekend as well! Come up for a weekend of skiing and dog sled watching!
