We expect to have about 3/4 of the trail system groomed and open for the weekend. Conditions - a mix of powder and loose granular surface on groomed trails. Some tracks will be set. There is pretty consistently 4 - 8 " of cover. There are a few washouts here and there that I have been patching up and you will occasionally have to work around a thin spot or two but it should be pretty fun.
Skiing Sat. 9 - 4:30. Skiing Sunday noon to 4:30 (you may come at 9 if you have your own gear and are familiar with our trails)
Saturday night, you are welcome to join us for a potluck at the lodge to celebrate the coming of longer days.
