Ski Season Beginnings

Santa dropped a little teaser in our ski boots this week, in the form of 3 inches of nice snowcover! A little wet and a little dense as it lay on Friday, it was perfect for our base-building. Lead groomer Dale Monthany got out to roll a bit of it upon our trusty Scandik 800, compacting the snow in anticipation of the nighttime firm-up. Overnight temps dropped into the lower teens, setting up a good base capture and hold additional snowfall as temperatures and some snowfall potential look good in the immediate future. We'll keep our eyes glued to the forecasters, you keep your eyes glued here for updates on our opening for the 2011/2012 Ski Season!

In anticipation, we've been working hard getting the Ski Shop ready for your visit. New equipment has been arriving and improvements to the shop are ongoing. We are pleased to announce that we'll be having hot soups and chili for sale during the season at lunch time (which, in the Nordic ski way is nearly all day!). This is in addition to the traditional snack, power-foods and cold and hot you'll need to keep fueled up and comfy.

New Rental Skis

New Rental Snowshoes
I ventured into the backcountry the night before the snow fell and came across this Adirondack beauty:

Our local Forest Ranger and his crew built it upon the a popular and local ski/snowshoe trail, and you will get to check it out this season! Lots more to come -- stay tuned...
