Such a beautiful surprise ski!!! I got there about 10:30, had to blow drive to get out! I was just starting to soften, so still pretty fast. I did badlands, flatlands and a few spots of roller coaster that was groomed. Just lovely. Melting fast but such a treat. All smiles here!

We're back, baby!! We received about 6 inches of heavy, dense snow throughout yesterday afternoon and last night. Groomer Stu began rolling the trails at dawn this morning, starting with the Rolling Hills and Trapper's Cabin trails. He is rolling in tracks first, and then will pack and snow comb the skating lanes. Temps will rise rapidly as the day progresses, so grab your skis quick and enjoy this awesome surprise day of skiing!! Skiing is on the house today, and while the Stone Turtle Cafe will not be serving lunch, we WILL be serving coffee and muffins! We will be open until 5pm. Ski you soon!!

If you want come out and ski today, we will have badlands and flatlands groomed. There is plenty of good skiing out there on all of the trails as we still have most of our base left with around 4 inches of new snow on top of it. Skiing by donation today, spring skiing is pretty awesome.
