Sunday afternoon saw some heavy, wet snow fall above 1,500 feet. This has bent down a number of trees across the trails, but otherwise improved the already good skiing surfaces.
The Monday into Tuesday forecast calls for 1, maybe 2, inches of snow; but that won't change the earlier report below. After that, temperatures drop so that by Friday it will be in the low single digits for a daily high. The pattern continues into Saturday before it again warms up.
Next update on Friday 2/3 when we have a better idea of the exact temperatures for the weekend.

Avalanche pass was very good 1/31. A few rocks from marcy dam to avalanche camp. Past there 2-3 new inches of snow and only one skier ahead of me. Only one skier after me as of 1:30.

Saturday 28th skiid to Stony Pond in Minerva. 3 or 4 blowdowns across trail and no ski tracks across the pond near the outlet. More open water then usual near the Beaver dam but that should change this week with the cold weather.

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.
