The 41 km. Banadad Ski Trail System is accessible from two trail heads, both with free parking; the eastern trail head is located 30 miles up the Gunflint Trail off the Lima Grade; the west end trail head is on the Gunflint Trail at Fire # 10045. In addition to the Banadad the trail system consists of the Lace Lake, Tall Pines and Tim Knapp Trails. The Banadad is the BWCA longest tracked ski trail and likely the longest wilderness tracked ski trail in the USA. For more info call 218-388-4487.

Snow on the Trails; More Needed

There has not been much change of the conditions on the Banadad this past week. We only had about 1/2 inches of snow during this period and what snow is on the ground is crusty so it does not blow around. There is still 16" of measure snow remaining on the ground. Banadad does have a slight track yet.  Likely groomable snow will arrive this coming weekend.

Last week four parties ski the entire Banadad and many more ski in and out from the two ends. I can not say we currently have great skiing but the trail is skiable.
