Notes: What a difference a day’s worth of weather makes….yesterday’s high-quality conditions with fresh snowfall changed to somewhat challenging trail conditions after a day of sunshine and high temperatures, plus lots of skier traffic.
Next Event: We have one more Tuesday on the schedule, February 7. Gather at the Spafford Chalet between 6:15-6:30 p.m., skiing begins about 6:45 p.m. or when we are ready. Low-key, fun, free, and no trail fees required.
