Hidden Valley Report

Ski Trail Report for 11/23/2015

Ely has received close to three inches of snow and we are enjoying cool weather, but our Nordic trails are not open yet.  We need another few inches of the powdery stuff to begin grooming.  We could get a little more snow on Wednesday (knock on wood).  The ski team is planning to ski on the local golf course tonight.  Life is good.

Trails are lush and green with blueberries ripening.  No snow unfortunately.

Hidden Valley, January 5th, 2015

On Saturday a good amount of snow fell in the Ely area. Groomers worked hard to keep up rolling and dragging the snow over the very firm base. As of today, the outer Bambas and Sommers Loops and the Birch Highlands are groomed and have tracks for classic. The striding was quite good in the cold temps this afternoon. Voyageurs Highway has been rolled as well. It's all white and beautiful, so you should just go.

Hidden Valley, December 19th, 2014

First...there was magic. Our groomer did some amazing work with the very little snow we received early eason. It was wonderful skiing at HV--with rock skis, but very few rocks to be found. Then came the thaw. Then the fluff. Now we are left with a very firm base and some rolled in airy fluffiness. There are more rocks exposed, so watch out, in particular where wind and sun could remove too much snow before it was rolled again. it's bound to be pretty good, though, so enjoy.
