Conditions and grooming (January 20, 2017)

Due to warm weather today we are not doing any new grooming.  Ricker's Field and lower trails in the woods are tracked.  No grooming occurred Thursday so trails are still covered with powder.  Pond Loop is not tracked but could be fun to ski in the soft snow.  Skiing should be fun as it warms today.  We plan to groom early Sat. and Sun. mornings if conditions improve. 


 

Conditions and grooming (January 18, 2017)

All trails groomed and tracked except Pond Loop, top part of Ken's Drop and Entrance Trail.  Pond Loop will be rolled this afternoon but no tracks.  Please do not ski down top part of Ken's Drop.  There is a bad washout at the bottom.  We cannot fix the washouts until we get more snow.  The new 2" of snow made the trails beautiful.


 

Never met a snowstorm I didn't like...

Love it when it snows!

Conditions and grooming (January 17, 2017)

Another great day for skiing!  All trails have been groomed and tracked where possible.  The Pond Loop, the top of Ken's Drop and the Entrance Trail are closed.  Please do not ski them because they are very icy. Grooming was done yesterday afternoon so conditions should be very good as it warms today.  Maybe a little snow tonight.


 

Grooming and conditions (January 16, 2017)

Beautiful day for skiing.  We will continue grooming later this morning into early afternoon. Grooming is more effective in these conditions as temperatures rise.  Ricker's Field has good skating lanes and  track set where possible.  The plan is to start working on trails in the woods.  For those that like to skate this is sugar snow where groomed.


 

Conditions and grooming (January 15, 2017)

Ricker's Field is now open for skiing.  Skating lanes are in very good shape.  Some track set where snow was soft enough.  Hope to open more trails in the woods tomorrow.


 

Conditions and grooming (January 14, 2017)

The good news is we kept our snow base.  The bad news it is like a brick.  Since we do not have a tiller our grooming equipment is limited in these conditions.  Our goal is to open up a small area for the Bill Koch program on Sunday.  If we can do anything else it will be posted tomorrow.


 

Moonlight Ski cancelled

 

Although the moon will be bright, it will be hidden by clouds dropping the tail end of a day's rain on a very soggy parking lot and trail system. Sighhhhh....

 

It does rain each January. It does snow again, and this wonderful ski season will continue. 

 

As the temps drop the trails will harden to cement, and the grooming crew will do their best to scratch out at least a loop in the field for us. 

 

Snow dances are appropriate at this point. 

Grooming and conditions (January 11, 2017)

Trail side parking lot will be closed today.  There will be no grooming until cold temperatures return. Looks like Friday/Saturday winter will be back.  Snowshoeing could be fun in the warm weather.  Latham Brook will be running hard.  


 

Grooming and conditions (January 9, 2017)

All trails covered with 1 " of fresh powder.  Skating lanes will be groomed later today.  Tracks on most trails are in good condition.    Beautiful day for skiing or snowshoeing.
