Late Winter Wonder
|That late winter sun is soooo lovely.
Cold mornings and warm days make for wonderful skiing. Hidden Valley has plenty of snow. Skate or classic: you choose.
If skiing in the warmth, go with skate unless you want to get out the klister.
Ski Pine Park while you can. It's amazing this time of year for sure.
Be aware than south facing slopes will be a little crusty at times.
We are still grooming most of our ski trails. The groomers are still setting classic tracks and the skate deck is wide and firm. Come out and enjoy the spring skiing under sunny skys.
Trail conditions remain near ideal. We are still grooming as needed for both skate and classic. There is more snow in the forecast for this weekend and we hope to be skiing most of March. See you there.
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
