Snow conditions history for Oil Creek State Park

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

12 March 2022

Dear XC Ski Friends, Sun Valley Nordic is done for the season but we wanted to thank you for your support this winter. We had a good run for a few weeks and were glad to see everyone. Last night we received 4-5" of snow. Not enough to groom on wet ground and we suspect there will be a bunch of branches and possibly trees blown down. You are on your own to enjoy spring skiing if you can. See you next winter!

At 7:00 AM it is beginning to snow and radar shows snowfall in the area for the next couple hours. Forecast shows temps hovering around freezing. The tracks are holding up well. Use caution on the downhills.

We received an inch of fresh snow today. The tracks are holding up well. Tomorrow it will be below freezing in the morning (faster harder conditions) and will climb above freezing in the afternoon (slower softer conditions). There is good snow coverage everywhere. In some areas where the tracks are hit by the sun they may be glazed. Use caution on the downhills in the morning. Check the weather report if traveling a distance. Possibility of drizzle or light rain in the afternoon.

We got about 7" of new snow on top of what we already had and we have a good solid base. John groomed and set track on all trails. If you thought the skiing was good last weekend, it will be equally as good if not better this weekend. Don't miss one of the best classical ski experiences around.

As predicted we got rain and sleet and finally some snow (about 4" maybe more at the park).. John will be heading to the park to groom this morning. Watch for an accurate report this evening.

If you've been thinking about skiing at Oil Creek, now is the time. With the fresh inches of snow we've been getting, the skiing has been excellent all week and is sure to continue into the weekend and early next week. The scenery and trails have been gorgeous. Get out and enjoy it while you can.

John will be out at Oil Creek grooming this morning after the 3-4 more inches of snow we got yesterday and to clean up where the gas well tenders went through. The base is solid so we should be set up for some very nice skiing all week and into the weekend.

With the addition of 4" of new snow over solid base the skiing was near perfect yesterday. More snow is expected later today so it looks like good skiing all week. John will groom again at some point and we'll let you know when. Enjoy some great skiing and please use the mailbox for your trail fee. Happy Trails!

The forecast is calling for some flurries throughout the day which should improve the good conditions we already have.  We recommend caution on the downhills until we get snow on top. Skiers had fun yesterday and it should fun again today. --

Good sub zero morning to you! Hey, it's going to get to 20 degrees this afternoon. Beautiful day to ski. All trails have been groomed and track set on Thursday. We haven't received any new snow so the hills are a bit icy. We recommend caution if skiing on the downhills. And don't forget we are having a ski swap this weekend too. Lot's of used equipment that must go to a good home. Donations accepted from the equipment for the Friends of Oil Creek and the PA Biathlon Club. PS. Thanks to the park staff for treating the icy parking lot but be careful anyway. --

John is heading to Oil Creek to groom this morning to set things up nice for the weekend. Cold temperatures are suppose to remain so the skiing should be pretty good. Come and enjoy it while you can. There is a ski swap this weekend too. Oil Creek is the place to be!

The conditions should be great today at Oil Creek. There is a base of about 10" with light snow on top. All trails are groomed and track set. The scenery is beautiful and the temperatures will be mild. The roads should be better today too so come on out and enjoy it while you can. Please use the mailbox for your trail fee when the ticket booth isn't open. Also, filling out an envelope helps us with demographics and numbers. Thanks!

John just called from Oil Creek. There is 10-11 inches of snow and the parking lot is plowed. He is grooming now starting with green, blue, and some white trails, followed later by the red and rest of the white. Skiing should be great this afternoon. Reminder, classical skiing only. Peg will be at the ticket booth by 1:00 for trail passes or use the mailbox before then. Still only $5 for day and $40 for season. Let the skiing begin! --

We received 10 inches of snow here at our house and assume there is that much at the park and it's still snowing. However, we have to dig ourselves out and wait for the township to plow before we can safely venture to the park. (we don't live close by). Plus the park has to get to plowing the parking lot at the ski area too. John will try to get to the park to groom as soon as possible. When that happens, we will send out an update. Be safe out there!
