1.1.2021 — Happy New Year, plus a little holiday weekend advice

It’s New Year’s weekend, always an extraordinarily busy weekend at Bearskin. We’d go so far as to say a “crazy weekend” at Bearskin. So we have a little advice if you are coming to visit our ski trail system:

  • A snowshoe trail is different from a ski trail. The middle of a ski trail is still a SKI TRAIL. Snowshoes ruin the trail for skiers. We have a really nice, separate snowshoe trail for you. Let us help you find the right trail!
  • Those “no dogs” signs on our trails mean = no dogs. Not even your dog. Dogs ruin the grooming. Quinn has to do a lot of extra work this morning redoing the trails because of someone’s dog yesterday.
  • Park at Golden Eagle! Start on the north side. If you get to our parking lot and there is not a sensible spot, park on the Golden Eagle side. So easy! So much smarter than some of the unsafe parking we saw yesterday.
  • You need to buy a ski pass. This is not a state-funded trail. These gorgeous trails through the woods don’t just happen— it takes so much work. Your ski tickets help fund all that effort.
