Incredible frosty conditions to start the day. Temps in the low 20’s. Great morning of skiing. Getting warmer in the afternoon but snow holding out great. We have been shoveling on thin areas this week to build up base for Section race course. We do not salt or sand the trails, parking lot or driveway so it doesn’t get slushy or wet like the streets. An afternoon ski found the trails in good shape after today’s warmth. A few southern exposed hill did lose some snow but overall things looks good and spring like skiing on tap. Tracks are glazed after freezing down and will be fast until it warms up again. Grooming yesterday on select trails brought up drier snow. Sap Run groomed with new tracks set. We are holding off on any more major grooming until needed so we can preserve the snow as best as possible. Ski conditions rated good to excellent (thanks for your reports, we appreciate it!). All 64km of trail open with track set on 56km of trail and 15km groomed for skating. 4km of snowshoe trail open. Ice skating rink in good condition.
Compacted base on trail 2-6″. Snow depth in the woods 6-14″. Snowfall last t week around 7″. Total snowfall this season around 18″. Although this is a low snow year, we spend every dry day outside the winter season preparing the trails to be in the best condition possible so we can have good skiing on minimal snow.
(Not the best day to take photos with hazy conditions but many calls today asking if we still have snow. Photos taken mid afternoon)
