​SNOW CONDITIONS:
Latest Update:  9/24/2021.  4pm. 

We’ll be updating snow conditions soon I promise.  While we’re all waiting on the snow to arrive, here’s a paragraph from our annual mailing about some exciting things for the upcoming 2021/2022 winter season: 

Once again we’ve been busy with some interesting projects.  We’re pleased to announce the purchase of a 2012 PistenBully 400 groomer.   This big boy grooms an impressive 17’ wide trail.  Best of all we’re converting it from diesel to 100% electric drive.  We still have our old 1999 PistenBully 100 too, so we now have a fleet of PistenBullies.  Also new for this winter we plan to add both snowmaking and lights to Potato Farmer trail (1km).  This will bring our total snowmaking and lighted loop up to 3km.  We’re also adding one more water pump for our snowmaking system (getting us from 60 gpm up to 90 gpm).   We’re getting homologated too!  What the heck is that?  It’s a certification of our 5km race course, as well as our sprint courses to make sure they meet FIS regulations for trail width, total climb, and stadium setup.

Natural snow days open last ski season: 83 days.  So far our 13th best year of 21 seasons for natural snow days open. 

Snowmaking days open last ski season:  107 days.

Eli’s 10-point Rock Skiing Scale:

  • 10: Should have used my race skis.

  • 9: Very nice skiing, but will see the occasional rock or icy patch.

  • 8: Very good skiing. There may be some bumps, rocks, ice or grassy spots to watch out for, especially on corners.

  • 7: Not too shabby. You might think it’s an 8, but then you snag a rock and fall on your face. It’s a 7.

  • 6: You’re out there thinking is this a 5 or a 6? Then the sun comes out. It’s a 6.

  • 5: Halfway decent skiing…. Still some rocks, grass, ice, or wet spots, but well worth the effort to get out the door.

  • 4: Meh.

  • 3: Fairly bad skiing. May be occasional patches of good skiing, but in general quite rocky, grassy, wet or icy.

  • 2: Pretty bad skiing… Not for beginners, use your most banged up rock skis…. Better than running, barely.

  • 1. I should have gone running
