Monday night saw a mix of sleet and freezing rain and even some rain before changing over to wet snow. Therefore, no definitive report on ski conditions for today or for the next few days as temperatures will fluctuate above and below the freezing mark. There won't be any significant melting of the 4-6"base that we have on the ground. Likewise, the lake ice on Avalanche Lake and Lake Colden will remain crossable as long as one stays away from the inlets and outlets. The outlet to Avalanche Lake especially should be given a wide berth. We'll update later in the week when we have a better idea of what the weather has done and what it will do for the weekend.
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.
