There is plenty of snow up in the North Shore ridges. With a blizzard watch for tomorrow and a stretch of cold days coming after that, it looks like we've got a bonus week of real winter still ahead.I love these snowdepth maps from the climatologists at the Minnesota DNR. Check out that raindrop-shaped smear of mauve along the North Shore. That's snow over two feet deep.
Even if the forecasts for a big snow don't pan out, here are some great ski trails right in that mauve smear:
Northwoods Ski Touring Trail, Silver Bay
Sugarbush Trail, Tofte-Lutsen
Bally Creek Trails, Grand Marais
I've posted these with links to SkinnySki.com...you can watch for current trail conditions there.
