Mid-Week Update 1/27/21
Aside from a few inches of new snow, conditions have not changed much from last week. Mt. Van Hoevenberg, Cascade, Paul Smiths VIC, and Dewey Mt. all report full, or nearly full, operation. On the Jackrabbit Trail and in the backcountry, the new snow has "refreshed" the surfaces, but not allowed any new routes to be recommended. The only true news is that the parking for Boreas Ponds is now being plowed, and there is a good broken track on Gulf Brook Rd.
Significantly colder Friday and Saturday, but warming to 20 on Sunday followed by a milder, but not too mild, beginning of next week.

does anyone know if the Mr. Van ski trail is passable between the Loj and South Meadow? I know there have been issues with the crossings there in the past.

Hey Chris - Mr. Van is in good shape and broken out, however we've received reports that the crossing off Marcy Brook between the Loj and the truck trail is not passable,

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.
