Trails Open After a early morning high of 37 degrees, temp falling to the mid teens mid morning. Few flakes of snow giving way to broken clouds and sunshine. Wind back in action but not so noticeable in the woods and ended up being not as strong as forecasted. Wind has brought down organic forest matter but still some fantastic skiing to be had.
