Trail Report – 1/31/18

Ski Trails:

Our area had a brief warm-up last Friday. Trails glazed up a bit, but were otherwise undamaged. Sub-zero temps have since returned and groomers are busy renovating the trails. Cold temps are forecast for this week and trails should return to excellent condition shortly.

Super Bowl Birkie!

If you haven’t seen this yet, The Birkie Bridge has made the trip to downtown Minneapolis for the 2018 Superbowl Festivities. Add to that nearly a kilometer of manmade snow and a Pisten Bully Groomer and you have the makings for a midwest-style winter party!

It’s fitting that a part of the “Super Bowl of skiing” will be part of the “other” Super Bowl. We just ask one thing – PLEASE, PLEASE  bring it back to Hayward for the 2018 Birkie!

Birkie Fever, baby!  -Chris
