Trails open Another 4″ of snow today. A snowy week with 8″ of new snow. A period of light rain at the end of snow fall today but cooling down in the evening with more snow. The temps will fall rapidly and dry the snow out nicely. Incredible two days of racing for the Section 8 Nordic Ski Championships. Nice job to all student athletes and thanks everyone who helped make it a great day. Results and photos posted on Skinnyski.
