Trail Report

A gorgeous day on the trails after yesterday’s snow storm dropped around 6″ of snow on the Maplelag trails. Trees flocked beautiful this morning with white and sun peeking out middle of the afternoon highlighting the conditions. Skiing this morning was typical of October snow with slushy and sticky conditions underneath but still a treat on Halloween day. Around 3km of trail was packed in the afternoon and should be good skiing for the evening and tomorrow morning before warmer temps move in and most likely melt most of the snow. More leaves coming down before the snow but still oak leaves hanging on that would be good to come down before the snow flies for real.
