The trails are open and skiing is great! Fantastic classic skiing with excellent tracks on Twin Lakes, JibFly, Sap Run and North Loup as top picks. Warming up big time on Monday making for ideal conditions. Dusting of snow Thursday night with just under an inch of fresh snow. We have been grooming daily and groomed a good portion of the trail system on Friday. Sap Run, Loon Return and Wavy Gravy groomed Saturday morning. Fantastic weekend of skiing. Thursday we took out the Pisten Bully trail groomer for the first time, mainly to do some testing to see if enough solid base and the end result was mostly good. We will be using the Pisten Bully when appropriate after a bit more new snow.
Very good reports from the trails (thanks to everyone who has submitted reports to skinnyski) and despite cooler temps, trails seeing solid skier traffic. There is no reason not to ski….bundle up and just ski!! Conditions are great!
