Latest Trail Report- Laddies Loppet Course

The past three days of warm temps and rain on Sunday has pretty much cleared the snow from the trails at Maplelag. There are still some ice sections here and there and the frost is out, at best, 4-5" down. We are looking at least two weeks before the trails will be open for mountain biking. Last year we hosted a short notice mountain bike race in the Spring, thanks to an early melt and unusually warm March. We were hoping to host another short notice race but with Easter very late and limited weekends available, hosting a Spring race looks tight at this point. We might try to do an event early May and will have information available here.

Mile marker one on the Laddies Loppet course. Clear of snow for the most part but needs a good couple weeks of "drying".

Lakeside singletrack drying up nicely. First to dry up proper with exposure to the sun most of the day.

Many low areas are holding water on the ski trails but most of the Laddies Loppet course avoids these areas. It will be a wet Spring though with water tables at record levels.
