Just got back from skating at the Lodge this morning. It is in excellent shape for skating! (There are no tracks for classic skiing here. Go to the lake at Pilot Knob for some classic tracks.)
If you've never skied this area, I would describe it similar to a roller coaster ride. It's small with hills and tight corners. But it also has a small flat loop on the North side for an easier time. This is one of my favorite places to ski!
