Comments: We are happy to start this ski trail report with a very familiar statement: it snowed once again! We've received 3.2 inches of snow over the last few days, the perfect amount needed to resurface the ski trails back into perfection after the recent warm weekend. The trees are once again snowcapped and the wilderness as pristine and gorgeous as ever.
More snow is forecasted each day over the next 4 days so the groomers look to have a busy weekend ahead of them. If we receive a constant light snowfall like is being predicted, expect trails to have some light new snow cover on them in between groomings.
Trail conditions this year have been excellent and this weekend is looking to be no exception. Temperatures over the next several days are predicted to be in the teens and 20's; perfect skiing weather if we do say so ourselves.
