Incredibly great skiing continues – with mostly powder and packed powder midwinter cross country ski conditions.  More cold weather (preserving that great skiing!) is in the forecast, but moderating from the below zero cold of earlier this month.  Lots of great cross country skiing coupled with some wonderful events and festivals should keep everyone busy!  See the updated ski reports here.

Great backcountry skiing is available – well anywhere!  If you have a great Summer Trail – explore it in winter.  Photo above is near North Creek on the Raymond Brook Ski Trail – more info here.
