Morning Update: We had a slight mechanical delay getting on snow with the cat, but we’re now back in action on the Livermore Road side of the North End. We’re also going to get Swan’s Way cleaned up with the snowmobile to give us a nice connection. Use caution on Village Trail, a few spots were extremely thin before the new snow fell overnight.
Fresh snow and hot sun, what more could we ask for on April 6th!? I’m not sure what all the other XC areas in the state are doing but we’re not giving up on winter and neither should you! We continue to have a phenomenal base on the North End and we’re grooming as much as the weather allows. With a potential for warm snow it’s going to be an F4/Universal glidewax day so don’t forget it at home or pick some up in the shop.
Sadly it’s time to say goodbye to skiing the South End for the season. There is still decent coverage on a few trails but Pond Loop is pretty much bare in a few spots and will be even more so after a warm weekend. The good news is we’re going to open it up to fat biking for the weekend. So if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to send the hairpin on a fat bike, now’s your chance! We should be able to hold onto Swan’s Way and Inner Mad River for a while longer to get you out to the North End without competing for a spot at Depot Camp. The parking lot has improved but will definitely be soft and muddy this weekend
The plan for grooming will be a Saturday morning groom on most of the North End and likely come down Swan’s or snowmobile groom it if we’re running low on time.
Nordic Kids is done for the season. Special thanks to Rachel and her kids for making it such an amazing program.
PS: We are still planning to stay open every day through April 14th.
