There is enough snow to ski on, but it's mush. :? Wait until it freezes up later today.

SNow is setting up. The golf course has been rolled for skating. It looks a bit narrow and rather lumpy, but it's a start. A few folks have skied classic on their own and now that it's below freezing, it should be fine. Expect some icing of the bases though so bring paste wax and/or a scraper to tend to that. Ice is forming on the pond and although I shouldn't have to say anything about that I will - stay off the ice! At least for another week or more. It is still officially fall yet, you know. :-)

Drove by this morning. 0F and windblown. Nobody in the parking lot. The pond is frozen over now though. :D Crystal Ridge ski hill (a mile away) was blowing snow on their hill FWIW.

8 inches of new snow yesterday. Groomed for both skate and classic.

Quite a few folks out this morning.

I'm going out a little later.
