Wow, I had to WD40 the keyboard for ABR updates!  The summer has been very busy with work off site, septic fields, basements, garages, driveways, and trailbuilding and mowing.  We have some new trails  flagged and partially cut but witht the wet summer it was better to work off site.  ABR Trails are brushed, cleared and mowed , we are just waiting for the snow.  Daily walks in the woods are really pretty with Angela and English Setter Darla

A new house for rent on the ABR ski trails!

A young family who has been skiing at ABR Trails for over 15 years, purchased the Saari House Friday. Adrianne and Logan will be renting the Saari house out when they or their family and friends are not staying there. Please contact them directly at 715-379-3481 or better yet email them at saarihouse@gmail.com

Welcome Logan, Adrianne and baby Beckett to being our new neighbors!

A big Thank you to Nancy  Zak for taking care of selling the house

 

Sunday night 7:30 PM

We had a great Season Closer, groomed up 55 km today with the PB’s and had great spring skiing. It was fun to have a beer and brat with our friends and pass holders and say “see you next season…Thank you for a great Season!”

The ski trails, ski shop and wax room are closed for the season.

Please remember to use the ski racks when you park your skis at the end of your visit!           Video

Just coming in from grooming in the bigger Bully…It was a “sweet, bitter” feeling as I put in the Bob Seger CD ..Silver Bullet Band and power-tilled into the sunset for my last evening grooming of the season. The Trails groomed up great tonight. We will be back out with both Pisten Bullies again in the early AM. Groomed tonight Blueberry, Bards, Hautanen, Popple Flats, PitPoint and Cherry. This will be great skiing after the temps warm up a bit. On the Groom schedule for early AM Tamarack 2 Track Ridge Runner, Coyote, Saari, River Trail ,Memory, Sulos with both Bully’s
Summary: 57 km groomed up with powertillers Sunday skiing schedule for early AM Tamarack 2 Track Ridge Runner, Coyote, Saari, River Trail ,Memory, Sulos with both Bully’s
Summary: 57 km groomed up with powertillers Sunday skiing

Friday 9 PM

I am just coming from grooming with the big Bully. I powertilled and reset tracks on Blueberry Bards, Hautanen, and Meadow Ridge so far tonight. the Trails are well covered and powertilling up nicely.  I will get a few hours sleep and partner up with Little Bully and we will double team powertill Tamarack 2 Track and then split up and powertill Ridge Runner,Coyote, Saari and Cherry and River and all side loops.  Time permitting we will most likely hit the dog trails with one of the Bully’s. We will not be retracking classic onlys since we have a good deep track in them and it will ski OK when the temps soften the track. Peltonen is also not going to be regroomed or reopened with the steepness it is too tricky to ski ….and dangerous without grooming.

Summary we will have about 50 km groomed up 65 km open and we have great snow coverage thru the weekend. We close Sunday at 5 PM
