  Beautiful skiing this morning. 1.5 feet of natural snow. VR 50 worked great. VR 55 an hour later. Should be good skiing for the next week... unless nature has its disastrous imprint. Early morning skiing is recommended. The Valkyrie trail is a magnificent... a wonderful wilderness ride. The tracks are firm so you can really ride the downhills with abandon. A real April treat in February.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  There was a brief window of opportunity to get out and groom Wednesday. On the Teuton Trail system, the groomer was able to break up the icy trail conditions and groom and reset the tracks. The higher winds have been blowing leaves, pine needles and branches onto the trail tread, so be aware. On the Valkyrie Trail system, the snow has melted down to the ground in various spots. The groomer was able to get snow into the trail to cover some of these bare spots, but there are still pine needles and leaves poking through. Due to the weather conditions, the groomer was not able to groom Loop C (Sunbowl Loop). Just like on the Teuton Trail system, there are pine needles, leaves and branches being blown on the trails.

  Snow has finally arrived! The trails in the Valhalla Area received about 6 new inches this week. The Teuton Trail system was rolled, groomed, and tracks set on Wednesday, February 8th. The Valkyrie Trail system was rolled, groomed, and tracks set on Thursday, February 9th. Both trail systems have excellent snow conditions. Warmer temperatures have set in today and are predicted through next week. This could melt the new snow on the trails considerably and put a hold on grooming operations. Get out and enjoy the warm weather skiing and hope the snow hangs on through the unseasonably warm temperatures. 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. The warming room and chalet are open for the season and also have maps and information.

  The Teuton and Valkyrie Trails have approximately 6 new inches of snow finally! The Teuton Trails were rolled, groomed and tracks set. The groomer is reporting that the tracks set up well with the new snow over the last few days. A good cold night will help freeze down the tracks so they are solid. The trail conditions are excellent. The Valkyrie Trails will be rolled, groomed and tracks set on Thursday. It looks like it should be a beautiful warm weekend to get out and ski. The chalet and warming room are open for use between 6:00 AM and 10:00 PM. The sledding hill has fresh snow and is ready for the kids to use. Come out and enjoy the trails and sledding hill.

  Two inches of new snow fell on the ski trails. All trails have a 4-5 inch base and are in good to excellent condition. The Teuton Trails were groomed and tracks set on Wednesday. The groomer reported that the snow conditions made it difficult to re-establish tracks. The skating lane is reported to be very fast. The Valkyrie Trails were groomed and tracks reset on Thursday, February 2nd. The snow conditions made setting new tracks difficult. Loop C (Sunbowl) is in good condition, but if we receive any windy days, drifting may occur across the trail where it is open and not protected by any vegetation. More snow is needed to help improve the snow conditions so the tracks set up. 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. The warming room and chalet are open for the season and also have maps and information. The daily user fee to use the trails or facilities is $5/vehicle per day or the 2016 Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Annual Pass is still valid through March 2017.
