Awesome corn snow. Full coverage. High traffic trails provide a good poling platform. Less traveled routes are a touch "punky". Skating is excellent AND tracks are still in good shape for kick and gliders.
The official ski report from Tom is that it is "Great!"
We worked all through the night to keep ahead of Vulcan - the snow storm, and packed, rolled and groomed everything possible. A snow depth probe revealed at least three feet of snow out by Brown Gate!
The woods are quiet and protected from the winds and just feel like a winter wonder land.
This morning Jane and I skied out over Holland - Frost - Brown Gate - Upper Gilmore - Gilmore and back to the shop. Alex headed out on snowshoes to find in his words: "great quality powder snow" - It truly is the best snow of the year! You really don't want to miss out on this one!
Now back to the shop for a hot bowl of soup and some other yummy chow.
