UPDATE 10:30 AM:
Apparently it was warmer than expected in Lake Placid Saturday night. All the snow that made the golf courses skiable as of Saturday afternoon melted. So, no base left as it cools down - except on most of the Whiteface Highway.
As of Sunday, 12/13, the warm weekend weather has not totally melted the snow on the Lake Placid golf courses or the Whiteface Highway, so there is still skiing despite temperatures around 40. Monday will be cooler, then mid-winter cold Tuesday through Friday (highs only low 20s), followed by 30 on Saturday. No major snow with this cold, so the ground should freeze and the lake ice may become thick enough early so that there is less slush after we have some snow on top.
Absent any chance for any significant new snow, the next update will be Thursday or Friday when the weekend forecast is clearer.
Trail Conditions 101
Trail condition reports are posted frequently during the ski season. The Adirondack backcountry can be a hard place to predict with weather and trail conditions that often change rapidly. We can't offer the same detailed descriptions of trail conditions as groomed nordic centers.
