Happy New Years! Steve and I packed with the flat drags all of the skate trails, including: Anchor, Jolly Long, Seagull, Rollercoaster, Telford, Sugarbush Dog Trail and the New Trail. Dave and Steve plan on grooming tomorrow am, and Bill plans to work on some of what they don't finish.
In addition to what was groomed yesterday during the day, Sugarbush Classic, Raven and Deerpath were groomed. Good skiing conditions out there. Very pretty with the snow in the trees.
Between Steve, Greg and myself, we got Anchor, Seagull, Rollercoaster, Telford, Sugarbush Dog Trail, and the new trail from the cabin to the bench on Seagull packed, groomed and tracked with the ginzus. We also packed with the flat drags Sugarbush Classic and Jolly Long. There were a lot of trees bending over, but the snow packed up nicely. I would rate what was fully groomed as very good to excellent.
This morning I groomed the skate lanes on Anchor, Seagull, Power Line, Jolly Long, Dog Road, Dear Path to Black Bear, Black Bear, and Roller Coaster. I did not touch the classic tracks.
With 2 cm (sounds better than less than an inch) of new SNOW the skate lanes will ski very well. I would still say 50% of the trails are good to very good, 45% good, and 5% good to poor with thin spots. All of the trails have leaves and needles mixed in with only a hand full of dirt spots. The Dog Road and Jolly Long are most in need of snow, you can ski around the thin spots but caution is advised. The better conditions are higher on the ridge so unless you can’t help yourself wait before you ski Jolly Long.
The classic tracks are glazed/icy with more thin spots and will need more snow before they will get any better.
Still early season conditions not suitable for your good skis.
The tubing hill is currently closed until we get more snow. Please check back for updates.
We work hard to keep our reports current.
