Happy Monday skiers,
Here is a Jackrabbit-specific report covering the entire trail from Paul Smiths to Keene, based on observations on Sunday Feb 2. Our next full conditions report for the region will be posted later this week. Until then the big takeaway is that skiing improved everywhere over the weekend. A dusting of snow Saturday night and Sunday was just enough to soften things up on already well-traveled ski trails. In some areas there is a weak crust when breaking trail, but not enough to detract from the skiing (even on skinny classic skis).

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.
