Light snow falling early Sunday morning. Mild temps below freezing, great day of skiing on tap! Mid winter ski conditions! Great skiing this week with moderate temps. Frost snow falling on the most recent groom with a few snow showers sprinkled on top making for special skiing. Conditions couldn’t be much better and now is the time to come to Maplelag if you haven’t made winter plans!
