Cross Country Ski Report – Saturday, Jan 27th

Trail Conditions Jan 27th 2024 Cross Country Ski Headquarters

We got a little drizzle yesterday afternoon. We did not get nearly as much precipitation as predicted, and much of it has drained from the trail surface. ALL TRAILS ARE OPEN, though conditions are soft. It appears as though most of the trails still have full to mostly full snow coverage, and no bare spots are visible from the trail head. It only got below freezing for a few hours last night, so we will not be grooming. Classic skiing will be preferred over skating today due to the softness of the snow. There is approximately 8″ of snow in the woods, and about 5-6″ packed on the trails. The Stone Turtle Day Lodge is open for lunch and drinks today. Join us for the free ski lesson today at 10:30am!

Today’s Forecast: “Overcast. Areas of dense fog. High 38F. Winds light and variable.”
