Thaw/Freeze


After several days of January playing tricks with our hearts, it looks that we will be back to temps that are more in line with winter than mud season. It got colder overnight and it’s expected to stay that way this week with most of our extended forecasts predicting that we will not see highs above 30 for five days or more. Flurries are in the forecast as well. 
For the next few days, we will close our backcountry and groomed terrain to skiers. The thaw significantly reduced our base depth, and created several spots where trails are down to dirt. What snow does remain on our Nordic trails is frozen and very slick. While the colder temps are a great thing, we are in need of more snow to build our base depth back and soften the surfaces. This makes things pretty unskiable for now, however, we will keep our groomed terrain open for snowshoeing. And, for non-pass holders, you’ll be able to explore on snowshoes for only $5! Check back for updates as conditions improve and terrain re-opens.
