ABR Ski Trails

Great news on our trail system, all 75 km of trails are now open. And, as you can see from the photo, we've been able to take our Pisten Bully out for a spin! The cold overnight temps of -3 F really helped freeze down our recent 6-8 inches of “localized lake effect snow”. 2 crews of 4 shovel operators worked on rough areas on the Highlands exit hill and Rudy’s Shoot (Dog Trails) yesterday. We have all 75 km of trails open for skiing:

The 45 km we have been grooming daily since Nov 9th is in very good – excellent condition. We call this “old ABR”.

The 26 k of trails south to the Highlands has been groomed about 5- 10 times and has some icy rough areas and an exposed dirt area here and there, fairly flat because we are leveling the trail; Not recommended for race skis or beginner skiers. Rated good by skiers that tested it today. The Highland Entrance is very rough in the low lands but gets much better once it hits the Highlands.

Ski conditions are being called very good to excellent and very close to mid winter conditions. ..2 inches of new snow overnight…We groomed 45 km again this morning including resetting all 45 km of classic tracks and regrooming and leveling 30 km of skating. We are heading out to regroom again early Wednesday morning. We are open daily including holidays. My take on the forecast is we will have very good skiing for the weekend, Friday late afternoon /evening the temps are warming and a chance of rain for a short time then turning cold and snow. The base we have should survive Friday evenings warm up fine.
Please check our website for most recent trail updates.
