01/09/2015 - We have rolled/packed trails at Elver, Yahara, and Odana, but due to the nature of the snow/heavy winds, coverage is still not adequate to ski on. Skiing is not recommended, please be advised that if you choose to ski, you may encounter exposed grass, sticks, rocks, and asphalt paths.
A cross-country ski permit is required for this trail system. The West Trails are lighted trails for night skiing. These trails are groomed 3-5 times a week as conditions allow.
