Central Gunflint ski trail conditions holding up
Despite the recent rain, the ski trails have held up quite well. With the recent new snowfall from yesterday, both Bearskin and Golden Eagle have been able to get out on the trails with snowmobiles and pack it in.
The rain did NOT have an ice-rink effect on the trails and skiers should not have a problem with slipping on freestyle or classic skies. The classic tracks that were set prior to the rain are, for the most part, still present and very solid; the skate lanes also seemed to have held up well. Some things to watch out for include areas of low snow/base in a few select sections of ski trails and newly exposed rocks.
