Conditions reports

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

White Grass

Skim of snow in the spruce this morning about to topple over Blackwater Falls. 30 skiable days so far, only a dozen in ok shape...reminds us of 1985. Forging on with diversified business as everyone has to eat and hike. Keep the faith yet a major change in the weather pattern needed for xc skiing the WV highlands. We stay open into mid April if called for. Cheers, heading over to Canaan's manmade snow to tele ski. chip

Oil Creek State Park

The skiing today was fun and spring like. No-wax skis were the ticket. We enjoyed seeing some ski friends too. the conditions deteriorated a bit by the end of the day. Tomorrow may be it for awhile. Early morning may be icy but don't wait too long to get out there or you'll miss it. HUGE SHOUT OUT to the ski trail work crew. If it wasn't for your efforts over the years of putting in culverts, digging drainage ditches, cutting trees and trimming, digging out rocks and roots, etc. we would not have been able to ski with the minimal snow we've received these past few years. This weekend was made possible because of you. (you know who you are) MUCH THANKS!

Fat tire biking was a success!! Everything is pretty soft, but groomed and track set!!! Skating should be decent in the am tomorrow or later tonight.

North Woods

Cold temps the past few evenings have firmed things up and trails are frozen except in the wettest areas and covered with an inch or so of dry powder - nice conditions for more snow but nothing significant in the forecast. Nevertheless a bright sunny day ahead with temps rising into the mid-30's so still a nice day to get out for a winter hike.

Laurel Mountain

Laurel received 5-6" of heavy wet snow with wet areas underneath. Not enough to ski but additional snow is coming down and forecast is for more accumulation tonight and tomorrow. That said, the snow accumulation has made the forest beautiful. So skiing is not good but recreating is great. Ski patrol plan to be in the warming hut tomorrow and will be demonstrating knot tying and map reading. I don't think they plan to have any food or drinks available. We will also be doing the snow dance.
