Hurray!  We received about a foot of fluffy new snow yesterday, so skiing season is about to begin.  The winds are still gusting to 40+ MPH and as a result we expect to find post-blizzard drifting and downed trees throughout the trails.  We'll be cleaning up today and Bob is planning a full system groom tonight with the Pisten Bully, so the trails should be in great shape for skiing beginning tomorrow.

Pincushion Ski Trails Grooming Report
December 7, 2021
We received about a foot of new snow over the weekend.  All of the green trails have been compacted with the Pisten Bully and there is a track set on Lower Snowman.  Work will continue through the week to complete Pisten Bully grooming of the remaining trails, expected to be completed by Friday.  Snow is a bit thin in lower elevations (at the bottom of the Pincushion loop) so use caution.

Things are returning to more normal conditions at Pincushion this summer after a challenging Covid year.  Here are a few changes and things to keep in mind as you enjoy the Pincushion trails this summer.
 
  • The Pincushion chalet is open to the public
  • Dogs are allowed on all trails, but must be kept on leash.  This is both a courtesy to other trail users and a safety measure, as there are wolves nearby.
  • There are no fees or trail passes needed for using the trails during the summer, but donations to the North Superior Ski and Run Club are welcome to help the club continue to maintain the trails.  You can donate on-line at http://pincushiontrails.org or drop a donation into the box outside the Pincushion chalet.
