Cross Country Ski Report – Sunday, January 28th

Paella Cross Country Ski Headquarters

Many skiers ventured out onto the trails yesterday, and the responses were surprisingly positive: solid snow coverage, good conditions albeit slow due to the moisture in the snow, and a few thin spots starting to open up. We expect the same today. It only got below freezing for a short time last night, so we will not be grooming this morning. 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″ packed on the trails. The Stone Turtle Day Lodge is open for lunch and drinks today. Join us for Paella today, cooked over open flame on the sun deck and served at 12 and 2pm.

Today’s Forecast: “Areas of patchy fog early. Generally cloudy. Temps nearly steady in the mid 30s. Winds N at 5 to 10 mph.”
