Snow Base is Firm

25 Dec 2016 3:14 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We went skiing on the trails for a few hours today.  The last couple of days, we've had some warm days so the snow consolidated quite a bit and there was still about 15 inches of base, although it was pretty much rock solid (good for base, not so much for skiing as you didn't have the give) so it was a roller coaster ride going up/down  hills, especially in the hemlocks.  It was kind of like spring skiing with just a bit of granular snow on top.  Open ridges were better.  More snow will be needed but that is coming -- will just need to wait a few days.
