The Eagle Cliff Trails southwest of Lead are open again, after a closure for logging operations.

The popular cross-country skiing trails were closed in December for logging in response to the mountain pine beetle infestation.

Sherry Bea Smith, president of Eagle Cliff Ski Association, said that since it is late into the winter season, trail-grooming activities have concluded for the year. Even so, skiing may resume for those willing to enjoy an adventure without grooming.

“It is evident that some areas are going to be spectacular with the vistas now open,” Bea Smith said.
