*** Trails closed as of 4:30 Saturday 11/26.  We opened November 17 and enjoyed nine days of early season skiing until rain and warm weather required us close trails.  We will re-open trails as soon as winter weather returns. ***

December 1:  November ended with rain, and December started with two inches lake effect snow.   We had about 90% coverage remaining after the rain and today’s snow is helping us rebuild base.  However there are enough wet or thin spots that we are not able to re-open trails today with this amount of snow.  We are working on our trails, so we can re-open as soon as weather permits.
