LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

SAT, NOV 17

Hanson Hills: Hanson Hills Recreation Authority is a No Hunting park, so it's a safe place to ski on opening weekend of firearm deer hunting season. Although not groomed yet, it was a great ski, breaking trail through the woods & around the alpine ski hill. There was approx 3" heavy snow, along with many red oak leaves.

Bay Meadows GC: Snow squalls all day long resulted in a couple inches of new snow on an already good skied in track. Conditions for some might have been a little slow but it was snowing and it was a winter wonderland. Karen loves it when she has such great control. The trail is so skied in one might think it was rolled. Skiing is awesome and will be even better tomorrow morning when the temperature drops overnight. Would love to get over to Forebush to support those great folks but this is so close to my condo I could walk there. Love this place and all the great people.

Blueberry Ridge: 2-3 more inches of snow on the trails. Trails still pretty uneven and squirrely, but snow is relatively fast and hard packed. Hoping for more this week!

Forbush Corner: First skate of the year. Groomed up pretty nice. Good coverage, thin in the normal places but easily navigated. Looking forward to tomorrow. Rock skis for sure, but no new dings that I know of :)

Kensington Metropark: 10:40am just finished skiing. The snow is wetter and softer, so less good. It is supposed to freeze overnight, so early morning skiing might be OK!

Kensington Metropark: Out on the golf course fairways as I write 8:55am). Not bad! Transformed damp snow. I'm on my classic Super Skis (they can ski over gravel and sticks without care). Tony is skating the good areas and doublepoling between fairways. Rock skis only!

Forbush Corner: Larry’s says it is grooming out well enough to ski. We will be open today. Expect early season conditions.

FRI, NOV 16

ABR Trails: Trails are looking good for the opener tomorrow. We should have about 40 km open and 20 -25 is tracked. There are some thin areas and some ice spots in the lowlands from melting. See you at 9am Saturday

Bay Meadows GC: First ski of the season at Bay Meadows Golf Course with Kathy Cook-Dowd & Janine Hardin, and ok, except my lack of fitness & balance on the uneven snow. Thanks to the VSC members who have skied in a trail. Some of the asphalt cart path is exposed, so be careful. And, of course, respect the greens.

Hanson Hills: Although we have not started our grooming process yet. Trails have 2-3 inches of coverage. that would provide for some great wilderness skiing. Warmer weather is predicted for the future so we will be holding off on grooming. Feel free to adventure out onto the trails, All main trails have been cleared and mowed (PRE-snowstorm) Wilderness Loop ( Section 1, Wanderlust, and Bucksnort were mowed and cleared (PRE-snowstorm).

Lodge will not be open this weekend.
