  Below freezing temps and a little fresh snow yesterday combine to produce excellent mid season conditions. Tracks are set on all primary trails. Skate deck is firm and fast. No bare spots, bring your "A" skis.

  All Hidden Valley trails are closed. Below freezing temps and 6-8" snow is in forecast. We most likely will re-open for the weekend.

  We received two inches of fresh snow on Monday. All trails are in excellent shape. Skating deck is flat and wide. Tracks are well formed and firm, not icy. Put away the klister, we are back to hard kick-wax.

  Here is a current description of trail conditions from our Chief Groomer, Wayne Pasmick:
Our base is holding up quite well. We lost some base, but still have plenty to work with. There are no bare spots or ice. The tracks are not even glazed. The trails are firm, I loosened up a little of the top, so it is ski-able and controllable. The skating deck is in very good shape and fast. The tracks are fair. I tried to re-cut some tracks but the snow is too transformed ("corn snow") to form a good track. What I need is about an inch of fresh snow to mix in with the old snow, then I could form a track I could be proud of.

[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  After a week of very warm weather, rain, and lots of use, we still have a solid base of skiable snow on our trail system and the forecast is for cooler temperatures. We have kept grooming to a bare minimum and classic tracks are not at their best, but conditions for skate skiing are still good and all we need now is a little fresh snow. Come on out and ski so the Snow Gods know we care.
