Due to the rain and warmer weather, our trails have gotten very thin and slushy–we are going to close for the time being in order to preserve the snow until we can open next.
Sue was up skiing today on Backway, Hidden Pond, Blueberry, Boardpile, Pine Ridge and Laurel. Snow was soft and there are a few more rocks and roots out, but trails are still skiable. Trails open at 9am tomorrow and please check in at our Office, not the Ski Shop.
Trail conditions as of 3:00 remained very good. I did Lake, Boardpile, Back Way (all rolled) and also Wild Rice, Sassafras, and Zinger (first tracks.) The snow after two days remains powdery and wonderful. Morning skiers Monday are in for a treat. However, the sun has made patches of the trails within sight of the lodge melt away. Don’t be discouraged. Also, PLEASE check before visiting in case the road or trails iced up overnight.
Hello skiers, Michael here. I skied today with two of the grandsons seen five years ago on the main page background photo. We went out Wild Rice, up Boardpile, around the Oak loop, down Boardpile to Blueberry, over to the connector to Lower Zinger, down to Hidden Pond, and back. Most of the trails have been rolled. There are remarkably few rocks but yes, a few. Coverage is thin but complete, and the surface easy to control. The unrolled trails skied well. We caution skiers to avoid the steeps, as a few snowplows could scrape the cover down to underlying ice or soil. There are bare areas on Bluel Moon, but Pitch Pine and Laurel are almost good enough to skate (I am told; not by me!) We’ll be open from 9-5 Sunday and trail passes are at the half-day rates all day. The weatherman says “Don’t count on skiing Monday.”
Get some skiing in before the New Year! Today we will be open from 9-5
Conditions are certainly not ideal (Rock Skis would be advised), however our trails are skiable. Some rocks and roots can be seen on our inner trails, and there are still icy sections of Boardpile.
We have about 2 inches of fresh snow from yesterday, however our trails still need to be assessed and groomed before we can ski. Many of our trails were quite bare due to the warm temperatures and rain, so the new snow will help build a new base but it might not be sufficient enough to ski.
We will assess and potentially groom trails today, so continue to check our Facebook page, Twitter feed, and this blog for updates
We are open for Snowshoeing–trails are still not in great condition.
Due to the rain, the roads are also quite slick, so please drive slow!
Similar to the last two days, our trails are very icy and not quite skiable. We will be open today but only for snowshoeing!
I had the chance of snowshoeing in Colorado up near the Continental Divide and it was glorious–if you haven’t tried it before, I encourage you to come up, rent some snow shoes, and explore our property. Trails open at 9.
Please check in at the office, not the Ski Center, upon arrival
Great skiing again today–despite the “wintery mix” of sleet and snow this morning, skiing was a blast and the trails were great.
Tomorrow, however, we will be closed unless stated otherwise. The temperatures will rise above freezing and we are expecting rain. Not only will this make for less than ideal skiing, the roads will be dangerous to drive on.
Check back for updates on when we will open next!
Precipitation has stopped! Trails are groomed and tracked and ready to be skied!
Come out for some good skiing!
