We are happy to say Bearskin didn’t get pummeled with more snow when Duluth received 20 inches this past weekend. The storm did not make it this far north. We added a little more snow to our already substantial base, which is just the way we like it. It’s easier to create a firm base when we are repeatedly grooming smaller snowfalls constantly instead of dealing with a huge amount all at once.
At this point we have excellent early skiing conditions. Many trails are open, with more to come. We have quite a few inches of firm base already, and the trails that are open are groomed for both classic and skate skiing. We were very busy with skiers all weekend, and they were quite pleased with conditions.
It’s quiet at the resort for the next 2 weeks, so we decided to offer an early season ski special. Rent 3 nights and we’ll give you one of those nights for free. Right now we’re in the cheap season, “Value Season” rates, so getting one night free makes it a super bargain. We’re deep cleaning cabins at the moment and completing some major projects, so not all the cabins are open for this rate. Early December is always a hard sell, as everyone is so busy with holiday events, parties, programs, and shopping. If you can make the time for a quick getaway we’ve got the snow, we’ve got the groomed trails, and we’ve got some cozy empty cabins just waiting for some guests. Bonus: moose are everywhere on the ski trails lately!
