Monday

The North End is being groomed Sunday P.M. Cascade Brook is back in action, just one narrow section climbing from Jnct 28 to 29. John Deer will be ungroomed for Monday, watch for a narrow wet spot near Jnct 39. The rest of the North End is in great shape and should ski extremely well.

The South End will be groomed Monday into the morning as we work to smooth things out and push a little snow into a couple thin spots. The coverage is still holding strong with one thin spot near the top of Jennings Peak being the only trouble spot at the moment. We have closed Upper and Middle Fletchers for the moment.

Enjoy a great day of skiing!

Sunday

We’re back to winter on Sunday! The cold overnight will allow us to get out and do a good bit of grooming. It will be slow going as we grind things up so we’ll leave a couple trails closed to make sure we have high quality skiing out there. The North End will see action Sunday evening and the South End will be on the agenda for Sunday morning. We will reopen quite a bit of the outer South End. It’s looking pretty darn good out there considering we had rain and 50 degrees on Friday. With the cold hanging around through most of the week we should be in great shape for a good long while still.

Saturday

Morning Update: We still have lots of snow! Things were just a touch too soft still this morning to take the big machine out so we’ll be snowmobile grooming through the morning and all trails should nicely with pretty mild temps today. Late afternoon we might start to see a little refreeze begin as temps drop off and wind picks up.

Saturday morning we’ll be out on both the North and South Ends with the snowmobile groomers to smooth out the trails. We’re trying to wait for things to dry out and firm up before taking the big cat back out there. However, we will be making on snow decisions so if things are solid enough in the morning then there may be some cat grooming on the North End. Once it warms up a little by mid-morning spring skiing will be in full effect and all open trails should soften up nicely. We’re going to close a few outer trails for now and hope to be able to reopen them after they freeze back up. Hopefully the heat and rain on Friday didn’t open up too many water bars.

There is still some rental gear for sale and some great deals on what’s left on the sale rack. Don’t miss your chance to upgrade your gear and while you’re at it get your season pass for next year at a killer pre-season deal.

It should be a fun day out there!

Friday

Friday is looking warm and wet. If you’re absolutely dead set on getting out please try to stick to the North End, specifically Livermore or Tripoli Road. The less traffic there is on thinner side trails the faster we can recover from this weather event. There will be no new grooming for Friday due to the weather. It’s going to be a great day to clean and wax your skis!

Thursday

We’re looking at a chance of snow overnight that should put a nice dusting on the trails. Unfortunately the groomer is down for repairs for Thursday. Fortunately it’s going to be in the mid 40’s so trails will be soft and spring skiing will be in full effect. If we pick up enough snow to make skating troublesome then we’ll take the snowmobile out in the morning and smooth out some skate lanes.

Bring some sunscreen!

Wednesday

This is just an unbelievable stretch of weather we’re in right now. Cold overnight temps will really help firm up the new snow and we’ll still see the mid 30’s by the afternoon. The North End will be groomed out overnight minus Tripoli Rd and Cascade Brook. Then we’ll get out on the South End Wednesday morning. There is some danger out there… you might have too much fun and end up skiing all day. So make sure you bring lunch and settle in for a great day.

Enjoy,

Ian

Tuesday

Update: The North End is pretty much done, we smoothed out the skate lanes on the inner South End with the snowmobile after some overnight snow. Conditions are epic. Get out and enjoy the sunshine.

With warmth and a little snow expected Monday evening we’ll wait until Tuesday morning to get out and groom the rest of the North End. We hit Moose Run and Wicked Easy on Monday morning so those will be in good shape. The remainder should be done by mid-morning. Conditions continue to be out of this world up here.

Make sure you take full advantage of this week with a day of warm and wet headed our way Friday. The good news is we have so much snow it should just be a blip on the radar.

Enjoy the day!
