Comments

Saturday was the best day of the season to date given the combination of the snow conditions and the weather.  Today is looking to be just as good.  We have received over four feet of snow over the past month.  As a result, all of the trails have very good snow coverage.  With so much snow, now is the time to try those hills & more challenging trails that you may have been avoiding.  All trails are open for x-c skiing with excellent packed powder conditions.  The trails have been groomed and tracks set.  There are trails for all ability levels, and we are receiving numerous positive comments about skiers enjoying the variety of the terrain.  Since the vast majority of the trail system is in the woods, skiers & snowshoers are protected from the wind.  The ungroomed "back-country" trails that are marked & mapped but never groomed offer a fun wilderness exploring adventure for these seeking that experience.   All trails are open to snowwhoers.  

We believe that taking a lesson will greatly enhance anyone's understanding & enjoyment, will minimize the frustration that can be associated with learning something new, and will give you the confidence to explore more of the trail network.  Our "We Love Beginner's" special includes a one-hour group lesson, equipment rental, and use of the trails for the remainder of the day for just $38.  The group lesson takes place at 10 am on Saturdays & Sundays.  Advance reservations are recommended.  Private lessons are also available at mutually convenient times.  

Weather

A mix of clouds & sun with temperatures rising quickly into the twenties.  Forecast high temperature of 27 degrees.  One to three inches of snow expected on Sunday night.
