Much of the trail network is packed out and open for skiing with good snow cover, though there are some thin spots where the ground is not frozen to be on the lookout for along the trail edges. We are looking at a variety of precipitation in the next 36 hours; we will be staying off the trail network and hope to return to grooming Thursday evening if the trails refreeze by that time.
We will be hosting the annual Bill Chenard Memorial Nordic High School Season Opener. Come join us to cheer on the young athletes as they get their season started. Boys Race starts at 11am and the Girls are targeted for 12:30pm. The trail network will be open for recreational skiing as well during the races.
The Bull Moose Café will be opening for the season next Saturday, 12/20 with hearty soups, sandwiches and delicious baked goods.
The Ice Rink will remain closed and will not be available until we get a few days of cold storm-free weather, but as soon as that window opens up, we will be working to get it up and going ASAP.
***We also wish to share that Trail 23 will be out of service for the next few weeks to support forest management activities on Sugarloaf land. Please use caution at the crossings on Trail 1West and 21, and you may wish to remove your skis at these plowed crossings. We will keep you updated on when this trail will return to skiing.***
We look forward to seeing you soon, and if you haven't picked up your season pass yet, you should do so up in the Alpine Base Lodge at the Guest Services Counter. If you haven't purchased your season pass yet, we encourage you to do so to get the most out of winter here at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center.
