Snow conditions history for Laurel Mountain

Thank you to all the snow conditions reporters who provide these updates for us.

3 February 2023

10° and windy. Better skiing than yesterday!! About an inch of new, fluffy snow. Ground frozen. Still a tad thin but definitely doable. Hill on Interstate is good. Trails to Wolfe's are skiable and fun. Decent coverage.

Rock skiing. Doable, but not great. Skis will take a beating. Ground is frozen, for the most part. It's 26° at 10:30.

Definitely skiable, but still thin. Better than yesterday! Ground starting to freeze back up. Now, if only it would stay cold. Then some snow. Recommended: Rock skis, as a few rocks showing through and a few persistent wet spots.

Is it skiable? Not really, although I did see two ladies go out. Looks enticing. Maybe 2" of snow, but thin with wet areas.

2" lake effect light snow. We groomed too silvermine. Other trails not regroomed till we get more snow. Conditions good 1/2 areas but there are some areas in fair conditions spots icing up that were wet. Some trails tracked, some not. 7" in woods but we need more snow. Might get some snow showers tonight which will help. Saturday will be the better day .

6"-7" on trail with dusting new snow. Track was set on upper trails. Most the track is good. Few areas with rocks showing. Fast but not icy. If we get couple inchs tonight will groom too silvermine

29 degrees, about 3" new snow. Powder with a little sleet on top. Rolled to Lippos loop. Need a little more snow to roll other trails. Conditions good for the 6" or so on the trails.

Conditions have deteriorated with more wet areas and rocks poking through. Still skiable if you must. Take your old skis. Hopefully we will get some forecasted snow. Keep to the upper trails accross from the warming hut. My rating 4/10. Woot!

Trails are still rather thin, but doable. Best to use rock skis, though. Many rocks poking out, and you sink in and hit the warm gournd in many spots. Take a scraper and silicone up the ski bases. Not enough, even, to roll the trails out. Hopefully we can do that tomorrow. We'll have to wait and see what this winter advisory brings. SNOW DANCE!!!!

Laurel Mountain: 3-4" trails mostly covered, dissent skiing. A few wet spots and some rocks easily skied around. Rating 6/10.

Not a good idea to ski today.... trails are thin, with multiple wet spots and rocks poking through. The trees are frosted, so best to enjoy the winter wonderland by hiking. Snow dance, everyone!!!

Looks great on Laurel Mt., but not enough snow, yet. And too wet underneath. We need more snow and a long period of cold to firm up the base. Do the dance!!?

Great skiing, again, on Laurel Mountain. Tracks held up well from Monday. Kick and glide was very good. Warm spell coming, so ski early on Wednesday morning before things turn to glue!

2" too 3" base on trails. Upper trails rolled earlier in the week. No tracks but decent conditions. We will groom Friday if we get the snow.

Upper trails rolled today.. Trails are skiable but thin. Hoping for snow later in week .

Trails at Laurel Mountain are definitely skiable...use touring skis or BC. Some moisture poking through in places, but not too bad for the first real day to ski. Not enough snow, yet, to set track (maybe by the end of the week!??). Monday, we'll probably take the roller out to pack down the snow to form a good base.

10:00 AM . Tried to groom trails, but not enough snowcover, yet. Many wet spots and rocks poking out. BC might be doable!?? Although, skis will probably sink through and pick up moisture, as the ground is still too warm:( Also, hunters are out!!!!! Use caution!

About 6", there was not enough snow too run the roller down interstate.
Bob Mazur11:05 am 19 November 2022

18 November 2022

Later saturday morning we maybe grooming interstate and lower loop with the roller. No tracks. Most likely not enough snow too groom the other trails but will evaluate. From looking at the cam looks like we may have 6".
