There is now over a foot of snow and it is still snowing. We have been out rolling the Banadad- setting the base. When this is completed we will be setting tracks. It is anticipated that the east end of the trail near the B&B, cabins and yurts should be tracked and ready to ski within a week or so. The remainder of the Banadad to the West end will not be open for another two week. You can keep posted on trail conditions by going to the Banadad Trail Association's website .

Five inches of snow and it is still snowing quite heavy. I guess some of us just can not wait.
However I would recommend using your rock skis.

If you are looking forward to winter and live in the Twin Cities area you should plan to attend Midwest Mountaineering's annual Winter Expo . This event is scheduled for Friday, November 19 through Sunday, November 21 at Midwest Mountaineering's Store located at 309 Cedar Ave, Minneapolis, and in large tents erected behind the store. We at Boundary Country Trekking (BCT) will have a booth at the show and will be providing information about our winter Nordic Skiing program- including, ski and snowshoe vacations at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B and Ski-in Cabins, Yurt to Yurt and lodge to Lodge Skiing, and of course skiing the BWCA's longest tracked trail the Banadad.
As for the Banadad- this year the Banadad Trail Association with the assistances of volunteers from the Minnesota Conservation Corp (YCC), North Star Ski Touring Club and local skiers has spent a lot of time clearing the Banadad. The trail is perhaps in the best pre-season condition that it has been in years. We now are ready for snow. Let it come!
Attending the show for BCT will be Ted Young and his daughter Karla Miller. They would love to have you attend the show and stop at BCT's booth to say hi!
