Trail Reports



2019 April 3, Grooming Report;

2019 April 3, Grooming Report;   Noque’ near 510 and Saux Head:  Andy groomed from Co Rd 510 all the way to 12k on the Noque and Animoosh…and then 2” of snow fell.  I wish I were joking about the new snow part.  File this under “no good deed goes unpunished”.  Skiing will be good until the new snow goes through transformation and becomes the freeze end of the cycle. Too Long Grooming Report: Sorry about not having an April fool’s edition.  I have never been able to come up with a good enough story.  Ever since I was hooked

2019 March 31, Grooming Report;   The Forestville Trail Head is Open This last Weekend!  Expect hard trails everywhere today.  Crust skiing looks to be great again all day long. Forestville (near trail head):   We are not able to groom east of the logging (see map below) so skiing is either crust skiing or trail skiing in the Goldie Locks Zone (no Goldie Locks Zone today; trails will be rock hard all day long).  Skiers can access everything east of the powerlines all the way to the Tourist Park although I expect east of the 5k mark trails are very

2019 March 29, Grooming Report;   Grooming is now being done from the trail head at Co Rd 510 due to logging at the eastern end of the system.  The best skiing is near 510 anyway and the snow is quite deep near 510 so we will be skiing for some time.  See the map of affected areas. Forestville/Co Rd 510 Trails: No grooming today but skiing will be quite good regardless provided you pick the time and place. We are in freeze thaw cycle and trails will be rock hard this morning.  Sunny skies and light air will make

2019 March 26, Grooming Report;   Today’s report is brought to you by the kind people that will not give me guff for my poor graphic arts ability.  Ok, so I am working with some dull tools but one should still be able to cut a straight line.  Oh well, guilty as charged. Anyway, I took a shot at a graphic representation of the logging effect.  I used a jpg file with some dated trails and for that I must apologize.  However, late spring skiers understand the lay of the land and will fill in any necessary gaps.  Anyway, you

2019 March 25, Grooming Report;   In case either of you missed yesterday’s report, I am running a good deal of the logging comments again today.  Please do read this report to understand what trails will be affected by logging this year. Today’s report is brought to you by the Sibilsky Family.  The Sibilsky’s sponsor the Co Rd 510 trail head.  Without folks like the Sibilskys we would not have the great skiing we have come to expect. TRAILS NEAR FORESTVILLE CLOSED FOR LOGGING:   Skiers will be using the Co Rd 510 trail head for the rest of the year.

2019 March 24, Grooming Report;   In case either of you missed yesterday’s report, I am running a good deal of the logging comments again today.  Please do read this report to understand what trails will be affected by logging this year. Over 99% of the trails we ski, bike, run and walk are owned by private land owners.  Most of the trails are on commercial forest land.  These land owners wish to see their land used by skiers, bikers, runners and walkers for 99+% of the time.  All they ask is that we understand they need to use the

2019 March 23, Grooming Report;   I actually hope you both read today’s report.  There is real information provided (if not entertainment). Today’s report is brought to you by our land owners.  Over 99% of the trails we ski, bike, run and walk are owned by private land owners.  Most of the trails are on commercial forest land.  These land owners wish to see their land used by skiers, bikers, runners and walkers for 99+% of the time.  All they ask is that we understand they need to use the land for a few months per decade.
