Another light dusting of dry fluffy snow overnight, accumulating to less than an inch. We are waiting for more snow to groom and open the trails. The temps have been plenty cold! We have been taking advantage of the dry weather and working on the trails, fine tuning here and there, clearing deadfall and putting up signs. There are sections of crusty snow patches here and there with Twin lakes trail holding the most snow and also Suicide hill. It won’t take much snow to open up Twin lakes and the other trails are in great shape as well. Signs of wildlife seen in the woods with tracks, beaver activity and the winter birds making sounds. The lakes, ponds and sloughs are making good ice which is great before the snow comes and we have been enjoying ice skating on the lake Little Sugarbush has been “noisy” as the ice expands and contracts.
We received 4″ of snow mid November and were able to groom and ski about 10 days, including on Thanksgiving, before most of it melted off.
