Not All X-C touring center are closed

We are open and it is snowing!

 We still have skiing leaving from touring center

We took the weekend off due to the very cool temps. Trail surface was very hard and temp remained too cold for surface to soften or groom. Now things are changing. We have received a light coating of snow already and it is still snowing.  Give a little time before coming out to ski. Trails will be beautiful today, streams are running, birds are out and it is a winter wonderland, all in same day. Due to fact our base is still intact even a small amount of snow will make a huge difference in quality of skiing. We expect to be open again on a day by day basis as long as we have decent spring skiing. Stay tuned winter is not over yet.

Best skiing on: Waterfall Trail (some ice down low) to trail #19, Upper Albany Brook Trails and experimental Forest Trails.

Our trails are closed today.

Up until today skiers have been enjoying a late season spring ski leaving from our touring center. The key words being spring skiing. Today is not spring like. Trail surface today is very hard and temp will remain too cold for surface to soften. Even groomed trail surface would be too fast. Sorry but skiing today would be dangerous and we don’t want our skiers to get hurt.

We did not receive snow last night and we do not plan to be open on Saturday. Overnight temps were very cold and are not expected to rise above freezing on Saturday. Without new snow or warm temps trail surface will be too hard to be safe. Due to fact our base is still intact even a small amount of snow will make a huge difference in quality of skiing. We expect to be open again on Monday. Stay tuned winter is not over yet.
