1/20/18 - Conditions

Overlook has been regroomed . skate lanes have been touched up and repairs made from snow machine damage, e & f trackset. The temps were 34 when we were at the Park this morning. Skiing was good except the wind has blown a lot of needles, leaves, and pinecones onto the trails.

If you see a sled where it should not be and can get a license number or description, please let us know.

When I asked for volunteers for ski groups I made an error on one date. The second Edwards-Knox group will be at the Park Feb. 8, not the 7th.

Thank you for your patience.

We wanted to pass along the following information from the Park Staff:

1). The Lodge hours are 8AM-3PM right now, 8AM-5PM on weekends .
2).  Park hours are going to be 8AM-4PM.
3).   Night skiing will only be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings - like in the past. 

Hopefully, this will be the opposite of last season and we will enjoy great season long conditions.

Happy skiing!

Ed & Judy
