We have not had this amount of snow in years!  Get out and enjoy our winter wonderland!!

Soaring Eagle Ski Trails – 2/12/2019 – All trails groomed at Soaring Eagle.

From Skinny Ski – We had 4-6″ new snow in this latest round, so trails have been classic skied but not yet groomed. Should happen in the next day or two. Snowshoe/Hok trail, 0.8 mi., has been flagged again and there are maps out there. This has had increased use this year.
