Blue Hills Trail CONDITIONS
The trails are in good shape, they have a thin layer of crusty snow.
Heads Up! There's active logging on the East Side (details below).
1-Avoid the following East Side trail segments where there's active logging: 4 to 5, 4 to B1, B1 to 5.
2-Logging on the West Side between intersections Y & Z was done in June.
3-Autumn 2022, loggers cut a big timber sale on the East Side. It's probably wise to avoid hiking those trails in all but very dry weather. Click here for a map showing the involved trails.
December 9: 1/2" wet snow
grooming & MOWING
Grooming Report / Plans:
Ski trail grooming begins some time in early-mid December after the deer gun hunts wind down, and the weather cooperates.
The infamous Blue Hills Bill shut off his alarm and casually stretched. This year, it wouldn't take him long to dig out his front door.
Snowfall this winter hasn't been great, luckily just enough to keep him cozy during January's cold. After munching a quick breakfast, Bill started digging. Just in the nick of time, he crawled out of his burrow at 7:27 this morning and delivered his annual prognostication to downtown Bruce, WI. Unlike last year's sparsely attended event, there was a big crowd of boosters awaiting his presence.
Big snows on Bill's burrow,
His sleep was so thorough;
Then a night to remember,
Bill hunkered down deep,
And focused on sleep;
Cold winds came his way,
And skiers did play.
Alas winter's so short,
Not nuff time to cavort;
No shadow this morning,
Snowmen take warning.
