Conditions and grooming (April 3, 2017)

Do I have a plan for YOU for after work today - spring skiing!  

 

Most trails were groomed this morning, Pond Loop to the entrance at Lost Valley, with tracks set.  

Skate lanes smoothed, and will be lovely.

Still great cover.

 

It's light until 7:30, and will be plenty warm.  

Muddy parking lots, so park on the side of the road, pulling off as far as you can for safety.

 

Enjoy!

 

Conditions and grooming (March 25, 2017)

All trails covered with a new inch of powder from yesterdays snow.  Skating lanes were dragged before the snow so they are very flat.  Skiing should be fun today and tomorrow as temperatures warm.  Please park on road or parking lot across the street from trails.  No new tracks but trails are soft enough for some fun classic skiing.  You may even be able to ski in the old tracks with the new powder.


 

Conditions and grooming (March 24, 2017)

The following skate lanes were groomed out this AM:  Ricker's Field Loop, Pond Loop, Ricker's Ridge Trail and lower field, Mary and Faith's Trail and Jim's Split.  One pass was made down lower Ken' Drop and Broadway.  There is still a ton of snow out there especially in the lower woods.  A couple of bare spots on the Pond Loop but the rest is 100% covered.  No new tracks set but skating lane is soft enough for classic skiing.


 

Conditions and grooming (March 21, 2017)

Although the next 48hrs look to be pretty chilly, once daytime temps get back above freezing starting on Friday, the skiing and snowshoeing are plenty fun.  I love seeing folks out there enjoying the warm days - there should be enough snow out there to move on for the next week or even two.  Three and a half months of skiing - what a season!


 

Conditions and grooming (March 18, 2017)

Another absolutely beautiful day for skiing.  All skating lanes were groomed this AM.   We will groom all trails we have opened up tomorrow morning and possibly break open up a few more trails if time permits.


 

Conditions and grooming (March 17, 2017)

Another beautiful winter day.    Skating lanes and tracks on the following trails:  Ricker's Field, Pond Loop, Ricker's Ridge Trail and lower field,  and loop on Mary and Faith's Trail.  Skating lanes were freshly groomed this AM. (No pots of gold seen on the trails...)


 

Conditions and grooming (March 16, 2017)

A beautiful winter day for skiing.  The following trails have been groomed for skating and set track:  Ricker's Field, Pond Loop, Ricker's Ridge Trail and lower field, and a loop on Mary and Faith's Trail.  It looks like we have a few more days of good skiing so we will continue to groom some of the trails.  Snowshoe trails need some pack for those that need a good workout.


 

Conditions and grooming (March 15, 2017)

Ricker's Field, Pond Loop, Ricker's Ridge and a loop on Mary and Faith's trail were packed out this AM.  Snow got too sticky so tracks and rolling will not happen until  Thursday AM.  It looks like we are going to have some great late season skiing.  Grooming will continue as long as winter conditions persist.  Get out there and enjoy the March sun.


 

Conditions and grooming (March 9, 2017)

The good news is that the snow shoe trails are a great way to get out to enjoy a bit more winter while you can.  They're still covered with snow, clear of blowdowns, and fun for tromping.

 

The bad news is that the ski trails aren't groomable unless we get a little more snow.  They're still covered (except the bottom of Ken's drop - beware!) but now a sheet of ice again, and our equipment is just not able to soften it up enough.  When the temps climb into the mid 30s and above, the top surface softens enough to have some fun skate skiing and waxless classic.

 

These are odd winters we've had lately, but we make the best of them.  The good news is that we've had snow covered trails for 3 months so far.  Not bad.  Not bad a'tall.

Rich D'Alessandro was able to groom the Pond Loop and Perkins Ridge Trail to give you a chance to get out of the wind.  Enjoy!
