The ski cabin will be closed this weekend for equipment loans. The track set areas throughout Ellenwood have become patchy and poor for skiing over the past few days of mild weather. The centre groomed strip may still offer some fairly good snow for classic or skate skiing, but the DNR has been in the park with their plow and narrowed the skiable surface a bit.
Trucks will be in and out of the park next week so that construction of the new cabin in one of the camping loops can be completed. There will likely be some sanding done on the road down from the parking lot so walkers may actually benefit!
We’ll keep an eye on the construction as it progresses. Hopefully, it will be all wrapped up in time for our next fall of snow!
