How great is this! Both the boys and girls Ely Nordic ski teams qualified for the State Tournament again this year and both teams are ranked in the top ten. Racing starts at 10:00 A.M. at Giants Ridge and it would be great if local ski enthusiasts showed up in force to support our teams. See you there
Warm up is on the way. Time to venture farther. With the new snow that fell, Pine Park has now been in part snowshoed and trimmed, partially groomed and certainly skied. If you've never skied the full loop, it's worth it for some technical and beautiful northwoods classical skiing.
The upper Hannah Jo loop is groomed and is very nice classic skiing for some intimate skiing more close to the security of the Bambas Trail.
Everything else is predictably awesome.
Reminder: check our race events and keep making luminaries for the Feb. 3 candlelight ski. Per Tyler Fish
Trails are in great shape considering the little snow we've gotten this year. The inner trails of the Bambas loop are particularly good: Birch Highlands including the Horseshoe, Hang On Tight, the Plunge and Voyageur's Highway.
The base is solid, grooming fine and there's a feeling of mid-winter skiing on our trails. Enjoy. Per Tyler fish
Hidden Valley is a winter wonderland with fresh snow over a well packed base. Both the boys and girls ski teams finished in first place at the latest tournament held at Spirit Mountain in Duluth. New skiiers will be joining MYSL for ski instruction soon and the slopes will be full of parents watching their kids learning to ski. Come on out and join the fun.
We finally got enough snow to declare all our trails groomed and open. There is more snow in the forecast and skiing should be excellent. Our Nordic Ski Team will race this Wednesday at Mt Itasca. The ski season is off and running. Enjoy.
