If this looks good to you than come on up and ski. I skied almost all of Maple to Spruce and Broadway this morning. But really folks , the only thing that has enough coverage to ski is Broadway to pond loop. That could even change tomorrow. But if you don't mind hopping over grass and creek crossings then you could try world cup or Bryant. We are done with rental gear and lessons. However the sports center will be open at least the next week. Thanks again for a great season, we look forward to the future with the Land Trust and catering to the local schools by meeting the grooming needs of the sport on that level. See you soon.-Rob D

Happy St. Patrick's day. I made the rounds today, but I forgot my camera so you will have to take my word. For Nordic we have Broadway to Spruce and upper Maple Loop, Pond loop and and upper world cup as of the end of today. For back country we have Bryant, Gardner's Lane , birch loop, heavenly highway and devils drop still covered. It is soft there are a few water crossings and it is possible to sink through the untracked snow. So like the beginning of the season be careful but if you want to get one last ski in it is possible.

So believe it or not I was able to groom and everything is still open with nice spring corn snow. There are a couple of spots on each trail you need step over but you don't have to get out of your skis on any trail yet. I don't know how long it will last so get it while you can.

Definitely coming in like a lion, so far March seems to be quite wintery. With more snow over the next 24 hours the backcountry will only ski better and I hope to keep up with the grooming for skate and classic on the nordic trails. Its snowing and blowing right now but I hope to get out and groom later this morning.
