Cross Country Ski Report – Thursday, January 17th, 2013

After over an inch of fresh snow between last night and today, we are happy to say that the ski-able trail network has expanded!
We have good to very good skiing on a majority of the Rolling Hills Trail now; everything except the extension is great for skating and classic. An abbreviated Trappers Cabin loop is open as well, and with the fresh powder on top of the groomed hard-pack, the skiing is much less treacherous than a couple days ago. Groomer Stu has been packing and grooming since 9:00am this morning. It is still snowing and people are skiing!
Today: Variable clouds with snow showers. High 17F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 70%. Snow accumulating 1 to 2 inches.
Tonight: Snow showers this evening. Becoming partly cloudy later. Low 8F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 50%.
Friday: Windy with snow showers. High 28F. Winds SSW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of snow 60%.
Friday night: Mostly cloudy and windy with on and off snow showers mainly during the evening. Low 26F. Winds SW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of snow 30%.
New Snow: 1 inch
Snow Depth in Woods: 2 – 5 inches
Packed Snow Depth on Trails: 1 – 4 inches
Ice, Glaze, Barespots: 2 trails are in very good shape. The rest are skiable but marginal.
We have great sandwich specials in the Stone Turtle Day Lodge and of course the old favorite Spicy Chili!
It’s a great day to demo! We still have great sales on cross country skis and cross country ski packages. Also, great deals on cross country ski clothing abound!
It’s Silver Streak Week – skiers age 55+ ski for free! And we are X-C Skiing today!
