We have just endured a thaw/freeze cycle which brought a decent amount of rain on Monday morning followed by single digit temps on Tuesday. This weather event has damaged the already thin base on the Nordic trails and caused what snow is left to ice up. Due to these poor conditions, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing will be closed until we get more snow and surfaces soften. We are still open for lift served skiing and riding and the Sports Center will also remain open.

After a tremendous day on Sunday, our weather roller coaster has taken another dip. We’ve had freezing rain overnight, which changed to rain this morning. The wet precipitation that has started the day should change to snow by the afternoon, as temperatures will fall from a morning high in the 40s to the upper 20s by the afternoon. This wet weather has caused the Nordic trails to ice up and forced us to close all Nordic skiing and snowshoeing for today. Once the storm passes we'll re-assess the trails to see if we can get anything open but, in all likelihood, we'll need more snow before we can re-open.

Two inches of fresh snow overnight has allowed our Nordic groomer to smooth out a few of our lower elevation trails. Broadway, Maple Loop (Upper, Middle & Lower) Picnic Loop and World Cup are all primed for skate-skiing this morning, and we'll keep this page updated if we get any more terrain through the day. Though there's some fluff on top, trails are still considered early-season, and will be for advanced skiers only.
