The register at the start of the trails is the official count of how many skiers and hikers use the trails and helps determine how funds are allotted by NYS.  Please remember: Everyone should Register every time.  Let's keep our future funding intact.

Trail conditions are updated courtesy of Ed & Judy Fuhr:

11/20/14: Ed will be grooming some trails and re-grooming roads this morning.  Snowing at a pretty good clip.  We may have to groom again later, but at least the base will be packed.  For those who can get out skiing should be good.  The ground is still warm so  there are a few sticky spots.  It does not appear that this bonus to winter will last-so enjoy while we have it.  Once again lodge open 8-3, trails 8-5. After all the hazard tree removal work the Park staff and Ed did this fall the trails have stood up well to the winds we have received.
