Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The groomer went out early yesterday morning and groomed and set track on Loops A & B of the Valkyrie Trails. Due to the extremely warm temperatures for this time of year, the groomer was not able to do Loop C. The base on a majority of the trails is about 6 inches and dropping with the temperatures. The Teuton and Valkyrie Trails have very soft snow and it is sticky. Predicted weather for the rest of the week will be too warm to attempt grooming. Until we receive colder temperatures and more snow, grooming is on hold. Get out and enjoy the warm weather skiing!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The groomer came out early this morning and groomed the Teuton Trails. The tracks were reset before it got too warm. A few skiers said the trails are excellent even if a bit soft. The Valkyrie Trails were not groomed due to the temperature being too warm so it would have done more harm then good. Weather depending, the groomer may try to come out to groom the Valkyrie Trails tomorrow. It is so warm and sunny up at the Valhalla Recreation Area that you can ski in just a sweatshirt. Come on out and enjoy the beautiful weather and trails!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The Valkyrie and Teuton Trails finally got some good snow. The base on 8 to 10 inches on both the Teuton and Valkyrie Trails. The snow packed tight after grooming and setting tracks. They are fast! On the Valkyrie Trail where trails were bare in the pines the wind has blown down needles into the tracks so beware. It has been very windy the last few days, so the Sunbowl Loop may have snow drifted across the trail. The parking areas and paths are getting drifted with snow in spots as well. The warming room and chalet are open. The sledding hill got new snow that should make it really fun. Note: the back door of the chalet (closest to wood shed) is in the process of being repaired and is locked. Please use the side door or the door towards the sledding hill entrance.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  The Valkyrie and Teuton Trails got a few inches of new snow over the past few days. The groomer went out and packed the new snow and groomed all of the trails on Thursday, January 5th. The base is about 3 inches on the Teuton and portions of the Valkyrie Trails, so no tracks were able to be set. On the Valkyrie Trail where it was bare, there is now about an inch of snow that finally covered the ground. Tracks will be set once we get enough snow. On the Sunbowl Loop, there is drifting of snow across the trail due to the strong winds. The parking areas and paths are getting drifted with snow in spots as well. There is ice under the snow in the parking lots and around the buildings- please drive and walk with care.
Please note that fat tire bikes are not an authorized use on any of the trails. Many roads across the forest are packed down by snowmobile use and maybe utilized for fat tire bike use. Pick up your Motorized Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) to see what roads maybe available to ride.
