Open today with great skiing and more to open through out the day

Good Morning, Yesterday's rain storm dumped about double the amount of rain that they forecasted. Never the less though, our deep snowpack absorbed the blow well and we still have great coverage on the trails. The following trails have been packed and tracked as of 9AM. Trail #2 around the airport, Trail #5 through the woods out to Trail #7 and out to Trail #4. I have also groomed trail #5 down to the bottom of Repeat Hill. Trail #5 through the fields will have to wait till the water drains out and freezes up properly. The coverage remains great and the ski surface did not turn into bullet proof ice. That has allowed the trails to be tilled nicely resulting in a great skate lanes that will b

Good day to organize the sock drawer

Good Morning, It is around 9:30 and a tad wet out there. It is raining at a modest clip, and as of right now the snowpack still looks good. There are still more that a couple of hours of wet weather and warmer temps to endure. I am confident that we will still be left with good skiing at the end of this annoying weather pattern. Once things refreeze and the trails drain from water, we will attack into the snow surface and get the trails open and skiing as good as possible.. Until then, at least for today, trails will be closed to protect our respectable base. Please stay off. A 16" deep ski rut into the mush will freeze into a 16" frozen trough and screw up the trail. As well as causing the

100 % open and things are fantastic

Good Morning, We have 100% of our trail system open and it is all skiing great. All of the trails were groomed out yesterday and everything should prove a pleasure to ski. Folsom Brook, Cold Springs and The Bundy trail were packed out last night and the plan was to groom it to perfection today but with the rain coming in tonight and tomorrow we will hold off and try to keep some air in the snow. Otherwise it will just turn to ICE CITY. No fun. The wet weather we have to endure tonight and tomorrow is pretty annoying but it does not, at this time look apocalyptic so I am optimistic about making it through and after things refreeze on Friday we should be styling for the weekend. They are talk

16" of fresh grooming out nicely

The trails are great and are starting to set up nicely Call for details or just come up and enjoy all of this snow. See you soon. n.

Great snow but really cold

Good Morning, We have amazing snow but the temps are currently eight below zero and there is a steady wind of 20mph with higher gusts. That equals about a 30 below wind chill.

Please call with questions and don't venture out. Call with questions, see you soon.
