It’s been a busy week for both groomers with new, fresh snow coming down each day since the 17th. Trail conditions are excellent and the scenery is gorgeous!

We have now passed a benchmark for total snowfall on the year at over 50 inches since November 1st. With total snowfall now at 51.35 inches, we are slightly ahead of where we were last year on this date, which totaled 50.40 inches. At this rate, we are looking at another 120 inch season! Keep it coming!

Skiing is still the best it’s been all season! All trails are open, conditions are excellent, the snow is plentiful, and the wilderness is inviting, peaceful, and waiting for adventurists. Come on up and have some fun cross country skiing; it is full blown winter on the Gunflint Trail!

We received a total of 5 inches of snow from the storm on January 3rd and a total of 7 inches since the morning of January 1st. Both groomers have been hard at work grooming in the fresh snow as it was coming down yesterday and again today for the final touches. The new snowfall has helped immensely to level out a few remaining uneven areas on select trails as well as to add to the quickly growing trail base, now averaging between 6 and 7 inches in depth. All trails are groomed and open - conditions continue to be fantastic for both skate and classic skiing; you can't ask for a much better snow situation than what we've received so far this season.

It is time! With much enthusiasm, we are delighted to publish the Central Gunflint Ski System’s first ski trail report for the 2014-15 ski season! The snowstorm on December 16th and 17th dropped approximately 11 inches of snow in our area and gave us an opportunity to get a huge jumpstart on grooming after about a month packing in a trail base. The majority of the ski trails are groomed and set with either double classic tracks or with a classic track and skate lane. Summer Home Road, Campground Loop, Deer Mouse, and Red Pines particularly are in excellent shape, providing great conditions normally not seen this early in the season. There are still a couple trails that, due to the rocky terrain they traverse, are snowmobile packed only. With a bit more snow, these will ready to be groomed shortly.

With more snow in the forecast for this week, trail conditions can change daily. Please contact Bearskin Lodge (1-800-338-4170) or Golden Eagle Lodge (1-800-346-2203) for the most up to date conditions and grooming information on each trail or route. Central Gunflint Ski Pass Required.
