The register at the start of the trails is the official count of how many skiers and hikers use the trails and helps determine how funds are allotted by NYS.  Please remember: Everyone should Register every time.  Let's keep our future funding intact.

Snow/Ski Report


11/18/18:

The grooming attempt on the E-Z trail was not very successful. One of our dedicated skiers has been establishing fresh tracks on Overlook and some of the other trails.
We are headed to pick up the Friends sled which will put grooing back in business.

Special thanks to Ed Fuhr who tirelessly grooms the trails into perfect shape!

Of course, Ed does get the occasional chance to put the slats on himself.






We wanted to pass along the following information from the Park Staff:

1). The normal Lodge hours are 8AM-3PM.  They are 8AM-5PM on weekends during the ski season.
2).  Park hours are going to be 8AM-4PM.
3).  Night skiing will only be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings - like in the past. 


Happy skiing!

Ed & Judy
