The good news is even after all of the warm temperatures and rain we received we still have plenty of snow in Cook County. Here’s a report from the Sugarbush Ski System followed by a report from Lutsen Mountain.
Sugarbush Report February 24, 2017
We finally have cooler temperatures, so grooming has resumed today. We have snow, unlike many other areas of the state.
Onion River Road, Britton Peak small loops, Hogback, and Homestead have been groomed today. Some areas have the track re-set and some not. This is due to the condition of the trail and the groomer’s best judgement for the situation.The Tofte Ski-Down trail has been closed, due to icy and un-safe conditions.
If you want more cross country skiing this winter, we have the snow and trail for you! Details for specific sections of the trail are updated by the groomers when they finish. See http://sugarbushtrail.org/ski_trails.php
We hope to see you on the trails
Lutsen Mountain Report WINTER IS WAITING FOR YOU
Winter is alive and well Up North. With a deep midwinter snowpack, the February thaw had minimal effect on slope conditions. In fact, the glorious days brought out some record skier visits for the holiday weekend. Average base around the mountain is still 4+ feet. Even off-piste there is a couple feet of snow in the woods. Temps have returned to normal and the long range forecast for March shows temperatures skewing slightly below normal, giving every indication that we are good for skiing daily through April 9th and weekends until May. Time to plan your spring ski vacation!
