Cross Country Ski Trails & Conditions
Rentals will be offered at the following locations as weather permits:
Bunker Hills Campground Visitor Center - Daily, 9:00 am-4:00 pm
Coon Rapids Dam Visitor Center - Saturday & Sunday, 9:00 am-4:00 pm
It is recommended that you call prior to arrival to ensure rental equipment is available due to trail conditions.
Trail conditions will be updated as consistently as possible when new information is available. It typically takes trail groomers 4 days to go through the entire trail system. After a fresh snowfall, 2 days are needed to pack and roll trails and another 2 days to groom and set track. Trails locations are address in the following priorities: Bunker Hills Regional Park (Park, Golf Course, Skijor), Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park, Chomonix Golf Course, and finally Rum River Central.
Due to the significant rainfall and warming temperatures, cross country ski grooming and equipment rental has ended for the season.
With soft trail conditions and expected, rental equipment will not be available until further notice. We will reevaluate trail conditions later in the week.
With soft trails and warming temperatures, no grooming activities will take place today. Trails will be evaluated after the rain has stopped to see about future grooming or skiing opportunities.
Due to last nights storm, trails will remain snow covered on Sunday with crews clearing parking lots and roadways. Grooming will begin on Monday starting in Bunker Hills. No ski rental equipment will be available on Sunday.
Chomonix and Rum River Central were groomed and tracked yesterday. Conditions are good with a hard skate deck. Bunker Park, Golf Course, and Coon Rapids Dam will be groomed again today to refresh trail conditions. Grooming will be evaluated as necessary with the cold temps keeping ski trails in good shape through the week.
Operators will groom Chomonix Golf Course, Rum River Central and Bunker Hills Skijor today. The extreme cold may limit how many sites can be groomed. Trails remain in very good condition.
