Trail Snow Report

Flandrau State Park

Trail conditions:

Ski/Trail Update 2/13/2019: The groomed ski trails are currently in very good condition. Ski trails were last groomed on 2/13. The trails will not be regroomed until the snowfalls and winds are done and allow for safe conditions. **Ski and snowshoe rental are available on weekends.Call ahead for rentals on weekdays to make sure staff are available.

While we are still in the process finishing the trail reroute, we have been given permission to allow use on the non-groomed trail. The Cottonwood and Oxbow loop will not be groomed until the work is completed. The Oxbow trail bridge was removed due to safety concerns and in preparation of a new crossing next spring. At this point the only segment of trail that is closed is the segment of the Oxbow Trail were the bridge was. We appreciate your patience and understanding on this matter. Please do not go around snow fencing - it was installed to block off unsafe areas of the old trail segments. If there are issues on the open trails please notify staff so that we can remedy that issue.
