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.
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.
