Until We (Can) Meet Again

By |2020-03-20T16:35:31-06:00March 20th, 2020|News, Trail Reports|

Sadly, we've reached that time of year where varying temperatures and little new snow signals the end of the ski season. It's been a truly terrific season of skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking! We'll be taking down the signs at Sibley and Cutler this weekend. Once the "no dogs" signs are down at Sibley, you [...]

We've had about 3" of new snow this week, but we're definitely getting on toward the end of the season.

Still Snowing!

By |2020-02-29T14:03:44-07:00February 28th, 2020|Trail Reports|

Late winter/early spring invariably brings the best snows of the season, and this week brought yet ANOTHER 8" of new snow to the trails. Do NOT get all crazy and start your spring cleaning when you could be on the mountain enjoying blue skies and freshly groomed ski trails! ❄ Sibley Lake Nordic Trails - [...]

Batting Cleanup

By |2020-02-23T08:13:21-07:00February 22nd, 2020|Uncategorized|

Well, Ma Nature finally gave us a little bit of a break this week so we could get the trails whipped back into shape! Thanks to your volunteer groomers who continued to battle soft, snowmobile-swallowing underlying conditions in order to get things back on track (groomer pun!😜).   Just a reminder - please no hiking [...]

Taking Back the Trails

By |2020-02-14T19:01:57-07:00February 14th, 2020|Trail Reports|

Holy cow, what a week it has been! We just beat back the snow by packing on Tuesday only to have Ma Nature dump another 8-10" on us. We've been stuck and dug out so many times we lost count, and sadly our ATV is on its way to the shop, but we WON (at [...]

Winter Returneth

By |2020-01-31T20:32:54-07:00January 31st, 2020|Trail Reports|

What a roller coaster ride of a season it has been! Just a week ago one of our volunteer groomers (we'll refer to him here as "Doubty McDoubterson" to protect his identity) was declaring that winter was over. And then... we got 8 inches (up to 10 in some spots!) of fluffy new hope. ❄Sibley [...]
