A visit from the Ski Maven.

Yesterday the Ski Maven visited us. And it sounds like she had an awesomeskimaven-for-site-banner-slice backcountry ski… and had some nice tele turns in the birch glades. The photos she took area amazing and it’s great to see how much snow is in the woods.

Good Question.

We have fielded calls from curious skiers all week because it’s so hard to tell from the valley towns what snow conditions are- here are a couple of your questions with our answers.world-cup-bryant

When is your last day? Sunday, April 5 is our last day.   So come and get it while you can!!

What trails are open? Yes!15 groomed and 70km backcountry.

Will you be grooming this weekend? Absolutely. We will have about 15km km skate and classic groomed.  It is spring conditions and this makes setting classic tracks sometimes challenging.

Are there waterbars on Bryant Trail? It has been warm here this week, but the snow pack is so deep and it’s been getting cold enough at night to refreeze everything.  If you come a cross an open water area in backcountry there is plenty of snow in the woods to go bryant-trailaround.

I want to ski Bolton to Trapps Trail- Is that possible? Yes- there is still a huge base of snow in the backcountry. We expect that you should be able to ski most of the way.   The one place that is getting a little bare is the part of trail as you descend into Nebraska Notch Rd.

When does the $110 Nordic pass deal expire? This deal expires after next Sunday April 5th.  So now is the time to invest in next year’s ski pass at the best price of the year.
