WI- Underdown Winter 2012-2013

Postby fishskicanoe » Sun Jan 06, 2013 8:50 pm

We haven't had a whole lot of snow so I didn't have any idea of what the local ski trail would be like. Surprisingly it was decent. There were a few scratchy spots under the balsams and one trail juncture was down to a mixture of grass, gravel and snow but the rest of the loops we skied were fast and fun. Hopefully any loss we have in the next week will be replaced with interest by the predicted snow and colder temps next weekend.

Did most of the long, Blue trail on the 9th of February. Planned to ski the whole trail but darkness and a light freezing drizzle sent us back to the car via a groomed Loop Road. Best conditions of the year. The trail was in excellent shape other than a few places under the big pines by Mist Lake and through a few sections of hemlock and balsam bog where the Tidd Tech raised its tracking molds. Now to see what the weather gods do with this afternoons sleet/freezing rain/snow combo.

Unbelievable skiing for March 21st. Fresh tracks. Deep snow. Hard wax temps. Uffda.

Should be good all through the weekend too. Temps around freezing for highs and lows in the teens. Unfortunately I've got to work 12's all weekend and then its off to Baltimore for a week. Even if there is snow when we get back , no way it will be this awesome. Is there?

Thank you for your lovely pictures ! What a beautiful blue trail ! Have to confess to heartache here in snowless West England though. Am off to Italy for Easter and hoping for snow on my trails........
