Saturday Conditions

Fog this morning in the Mountains is starting to lift and the sun is shining through.  Temp’s in the mid 30’s.  Beginning to feel like Spring and there’s still a lot of snow on the trails out in these beautiful wooded mts.  We had some snow last night, followed by rising temp’s and a bit of rain.  Groomed trails are granular over the deep, packed base.  Picnic, World Cup and Broadway have been groomed and are ready to ski! (No tracks set.)

Today is the BackCountry Challenge Race from Trapps to Bolton Valley!  Racers will be coming over the Catamount Trail and are expected to finish right here at the Broadway trailhead between 12 and 2.  Looking forward to seeing all the racers and supporters around the finish and Nordic Center!

Forecast is for 2-4 in. tonight into tomorrow.
