Central Gunflint Trail Area
We’ve received 3.5 inches of fresh snow over the last 3 days allowing us to re-groom all the trails without a tiller. Temperatures over the upcoming days look to be comfortable and moderate. Please keep in mind that we are well into March and the spring weather can change conditions quickly. Ski conditions are still excellent so get out there and enjoy the trails! Please contact Bearskin Lodge or Golden Eagle Lodge for the most updated conditions on each trail or route. Central Gunflint Ski Pass Required.
We are now beginning to deal with spring conditions; please keep in mind that trail conditions change daily as temperatures rise and fall. Many trails have been tilled and the rest will be, and continue to be, as the week progresses. Surface conditions vary depending on the time of day and the temperature; however, conditions are still very good for both classic and skate skiing. Best conditions will be in the morning and early afternoon. Please contact Golden Eagle Lodge or Bearskin Lodge for the most updated conditions on each trail or route.

Total snowfall since February 12th has now reached 31.15 inches! Both Bearskin and Golden Eagle have been grooming daily to try to pack as much of that snow as possible into the trail base. Classic skiing is fantastic, but due to the large amount of snowfall in such a short amount of time, expect conditions to be soft for skate skiing. We will continue to groom throughout the week to try to pack the base as much as we can.

It has been a snowy week; we’ve received 18.15 inches of snow since February 12th making for beautiful snow covered pine trees and constant freshly groomed ski trails. The groomers have been incredibly busy these past few days trying to keep up with the fresh snowfall as to not let pile up too high between groomings. Reports are that trails have been a tad slow which is to be expected after fresh snowfall, but with warming temperatures in the forecast, we predict some faster conditions in the upcoming days. Temperatures appear to stay in the low 30’s and upper 20’s throughout the week so get out there and take advantage of this beautiful weather!

Beautiful mid winter snowfalls are in no shortage on the Gunflint Trail! We received another 6.5 inches of new snow yesterday, now all freshly groomed into classic tracks and skate lanes. The ski trails continue to be in the best shape they’ve been all season, and with weather for the upcoming days forecasted to be much warmer than we’ve been accustomed to seeing so far this winter, this offers a great opportunity for skiers to get in some of the best skiing of the winter!

It’s been a cold week, but fortunately it looks like things will be slightly…less cold… throughout the next few days (at least to temps slightly above 0). All ski trails remain in fantastic shape and have a very solid base due to grooming during the recently cold weather; the skate lanes and classic tracks are holding very solid. All ski trails will continue to be groomed on an as-needed basis, determined by use or fresh snowfall. Be sure to throw on an extra layer of clothing before you head out, a warm skier is a happy skier.
