Weather Update Sunday, 12/29
Some "interesting" precipitation moving in tonight and into Monday. A true "wintry mix" of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. We could end up getting 3-4" of wet, heavy snow, which would get our base back to where it was. However, we'll just have to wait until later tomorrow to know exactly what we got and where. Monday doesn't seem like a day to be driving around checking the various ski trailheads, but we'll try on Tuesday so we can hopefully have a good report for the rest of the week and weekend. Still no really cold weather in sight with daytime highs in the 30s through next Saturday.

I can tell you that Fish Pond is still “skiable” as of today, 12/29/19. We skied out to St. Regis Pond canoe carry off the main trail about 3 miles in. Someone cut some of the bigger trees out of the way (thank you) and a few smaller ones are left to cut. Nothing is unskiable on the big climb and descent. Several other words come to mind such as “marginal” and “negligible”, however, we slid on snow with skis, so that’s good.

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.
