Cross Country Ski Report – Sunday, January 15th

The trails groomed up wonderfully yesterday, giving many skiers the most ideal conditions all winter, with blue skies, mild temps, and lots of sunshine. Ginzu Dana will start snow combing all the trails and setting new tracks where needed early this morning. We now have a 8 to 11 inch packed base and 12 to 16 inches of snow in the woods. It’s hard to believe all the snow we have in the forest! Conditions are excellent for skating and classic skiing on all 8 trails.


Today: A mix of clouds and sun. High 29F. Winds light and variable.

Tonight: Partly cloudy skies. Low 17F. Winds light and variable.

Tomorrow: A mix of clouds and sun early, then becoming cloudy later in the day. High 37F. Winds light and variable.
