It may be getting warmer down in the lower elevations, but we are holding our own. High of 39 tomorrow will be our highest and then our temps are going back down and snow in the forecast for this weekend as well.
Remember we are 4000 feet higher than Rapid City and Spearfish and 1500 feet higher than Lead, that is why we hold our snow. Our ground is good and cold and holds the snow. You may not see much for snow until you go by Cheyenne Crossing and then it continues to build.
We are looking for part time help for our winter season if anyone is interested, please call 605-584-3464.
We received around 18 inches of new snow here on November 30th. There was up to 30 inches closer to Lead. It is deeper in places. The wind blew and made some pretty big drifts. We already had a good base of around 15 inches on the ground, so this will add to our base.
The trails officially open up on Dec 15. The trails won’t be groomed until the night of the 15th, so we won’t rent any snowmobiles until Dec 16, since the trails won’t be all groomed until then.
Call 605-584-3464 to make a snowmobile or cabin reservation.

I think we can officially say that our UTV season is over. We have gotten 40 inches of snow since October 10th. At least half of it is still on the ground. We have had several days of cold temps and more on the way. It was 15 below the morning of October 30. More snow in the forecast for tonight through next week.
The snowmobile trails open Dec 15. We have been taking reservations for the snowmobile season, so if you are interested, you may want to reserve to be guaranteed a snowmobile for when you want it.
The Black Hills is looking gorgeous this summer! We have gotten plenty of moisture, along with everyone else, that shows off the beauty in the Black Hills. The weather is straightening out and it has been beautiful up here, weather and scenery. Great time to get away and enjoy the beautiful Black Hills. We are in a great location to get away, relax and explore. You can do any of the 3 or all above. We have cabins to stay in and UTV’s to ride. You can bring your own as well. It is a great place to go motorcycling, dirt biking, or scouting for wild life. You can even hear the elk bugle in the middle of the night.
We provide detailed laminated maps with suggested routes to take in our rental UTV’s. We also sell the maps to others that already have their machines or need them to go hunting, camping, exploring, etc.
Call 605-584-3464 to reserve a cabin and/or UTV.
We still have cabins available during the Sturgis Rally. We don’t hike our rates during the rally.

The end of the season is getting closer. Our parking lot and Lodge lot is a muddy mess at the moment. Riders are telling me that the trails are holding up and it is still deep off trail and they are still finding some untouched snow, which is surprising! We are going to have 2 warm days on Tuesday and Wednesday with 46 degree temps. Temps are dropping on Thursday with a chance of 3-5 inches now. Temps are suppose to stay down in the 20s and 30s starting Thursday through the first week of April. The snow is still chest deep off trail, in some places. Most of the trails are still 3 to 4 feet deep.
It is spring riding right now. The snow is sugary. Maybe we will get one last blast to finish the season off. The trails haven’t been groomed for a week due to the warm temps. They can’t go back out after the 30th.
We received 30 inches of new snow last week. Groomers are still working on all the trails, getting them in awesome shape. Temps will be in the 30s through Wednesday, low 40s Thursday, Friday, Saturday and back in the 30s for the following week. More snow in the forecast for the last weekend in March. The trails will be groomed through March 30th. We will be renting through the 31st. We will have plenty of snow to finish the season.
We will be selling our 2018 Arctic Cat Lynx Trail Sleds after the 31st. If anyone is interested in purchasing one or more, call 605-584-3464 to give us your name and credit card information to hold what you want. They are $3500.00 each.
We received 2 feet of snow yesterday and through the night. The drifts are 3 to 5 feet or higher. The groomers are planned to go out tonight. It is going to be awesome riding Friday and through the weekend. The temps will stay down in the 20s and 30s. The temps are predicted to be in the 40s later next week. We do have some chances of snow for later next week and the first part of the last week in March.
The trails will not be groomed after March 31st.
