Winter in Heaven
The My Lake Home Groomed XC ski trails
We host and groom 8k of groomed single track trails. My
lake Home trails travel thru hardwood forests of red and white pines, winding thru frozen wetlands of
cedars where viewing the lake is magnificant. There are a few easy and short side hills where Aspen and
Birch preside. The varied terrain makes skiing enjoyable for the beginner, intermediate and experienced skier. No
permits or fee's required. Our trails are very private, very scenic and right outside our doors. Maps available.
Beginners like our Loon Lady trail that runs
clockwise just inside the forest line off the lake then swings back to The Ole Inn trail which leads guests back to the
Intermediates have several
options, most like to follow the Lower Pigeon trail which cuts by the cedars where lots of deer like to gather. Keep
your eyes peeled and you'll see lots of tracks and maybe even a deer or two. This trail leads you right to Sams trail
and up to the Middle Pigeon trail, from there you have 3 options. Intermediates usually take the Avenue of Pines trail where
we usually see wolf sign so watch for tracks, they are very illusive so chances are you will never see them. From there you
can head back to the Lower Pigeon and watch out for the butt bouncer hill on your way back to Ole Inn.
skiers will follow the outside loop from Ole Inn thru Loon Lady to Sams then the straight away to the Eagles Nest trail which
skirts around a cut area with natural hills and winding trails. Keep your eyes peeled for eagles as you pass directly
below the nest. This trail leads you out of the back country and back to Middle pigeon. Expert skiers will continue
down the Middle with its hills and huge Pines to the Ladyslippery trail that starts on a hill and has a long straight
away thru thick forest toward the lake, here we often get spooked by a fleeing grouse. The trail then swings back up
hill to the Avenue of Pines which splits into two directions. From there you can loop back around to the middle
and go in any direction or head back to Ole Inn.
This is such a great ski area, I felt like I was the only person on earth out
there! Jack Mason
The Never Ending Winter Trail Report
We are still skiing and our snow has shrunk to a flat
track with less than a 15 inch base . The trails are mostly shaded so we still get out there in the mornings and
really enjoying the trails yet! My last day out was April 25th and we got with-in 25 feet of a Barred Owl, she just sat
in the tree above us and stared.
