Temperatures have been above freezing since Thursday afternoon and remain well above freezing as of 11 AM Friday with moderately heavy rain. It will cool down by evening, but not before we lose even more snow with not much new snow currently predicted. So, not much skiing to report for the coming weekend, but the hiking trail will be icy. Cold temperatures and wind will make for winter conditions on any exposed summit. Be prepared.
Next week does not at the moment look all that promising to have any good skiing for Thanksgiving, but stay tuned. Just a slight dip in the currently predicted temperatures for next week could produce some more snow. We'll update as conditions change.
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.
