City of Lakes (Bog)

Fast, icy, rutted in places, all around fun and scary.

I skied a a loop of the Bog at dusk tonight and I'll second Zach's report for yesterday. There is still full coverage, and most of it has an edge. It's not wicked fast, but scary on some of the icier downhills. There are a couple wet spots too. I only took one loop because it was getting harder in the dark and mist, even with a headlamp.

Oh, and getting to it — there's no parking near the bog (the lot there is icy and sketchy and maybe illegal?). I parked at the beach and skied over—it wasn't too bad although I'd stay on the older climb up to the Parkway crossing, and take car coming down (even I snowplowed!). Still, it's skiing, or some approximation thereof.

I can only get to two trails at most, on a good day! Check out all the trail reports at
