Some of the snow on our trails was melted down by the rain yesterday; In addition, warmer temps from Saturday afternoon and Sunday have softened what we had on the ground.
We will stay closed to preserve what we have on the ground until our next big snowfall.
We had another great day of skiing on Saturday–thanks to all who came and enjoyed!
Temperatures were starting to rise in the afternoon, making the snow a bit sticky. Overnight, temps stayed fairly warm and it has been raining all morning–snow has gotten very soft, and roads are extremely slick. We have decided to close for the day. Stay tuned for our next opening!
Good morning skiers:
The 7 inches of snow has packed down some since yesterday, so it’s not as powdery. This morning will make for quite nice skiing.
The forecast calls for rain tomorrow (Sunday) and warmer temps. in the afternoon today
Tom is touching up some of the trails right now with the groomer, so we will be ready to ski at 9am!
Our trails are groomed and ready to be skied on! I went around the lake this morning, and it was glorious: the 7 inches on the ground in addition to the tracks made for a great morning ski
Wild Rice Trail is featured below:
We had a crowd of happy skiers today of all skill levels. The coverage remains good including the steeps. A few more rocks are poking through but as of Saturday afternoon they are easy to avoid. It’s hard to count on the weather coming in, so grab this good Crystal Lake skiing while you can.
Michael here. I just came in from skiing Wild Rice, Blueberry, Rocky Road, Zinger, and Hidden Pond. It’s impressively good for a five inch snowfall. The first inches were heavy enough for support, and the top is lovely medium powder, so skis perform in and out of the tracks. The skiing is moderately fast, not icy, and quite safe. We don’t intend to roll or groom, so I doubt that skating will work and it’s hard on the snow. There were no rocks except of course Rocky Road and the upper part of Zinger, and even they were easy to avoid. Bring rock skis if you are very concerned, but at early in the weekend they should not be needed.
Conditions are pretty much the same as yesterday afternoon–check out Sue’s post below:
Again, our trails are not groomed and coverage is quite thin. Please check in at our Office upon arrival.
