Tonight/tomorrow's forecast for the Cats was predicting 6-10 inches. Anything would be an improvement, but this would top it off fairly well. Hopeful, RC.

The latest snowfall has quickly consolidated to only a few inches in some areas. We skied up to the ridge on Ashokan High Point from the Peekamoose Rd trail head. We turned left continuing on the Red blazed trail and dropped down through the woods to intersect the lower red trail on the return. Areas under the hemlocks were very thin, open areas better off, but not worth another visit unless we get another 4 or 5 inches. Northern or western Cats should have faired much better after Tuesday's snow fall. RC

Keep praying. Forecasts for tonight through tomorrow include expectations of up to 15 inches in the Cats. Even half that would go a long way to improving all the standard ski tours. RC

ok i do plan on doing a day trip this weekend. ive never skied ashokan high point before, im considering doing that, is the trail steep enough to get some descent speed on the way down? some tele turns? or is it to low of a grade? also if i want to try the glade were is a good spot to drop off the trail to the north from the left trail up top?

With the depth of the snow as of today, Ashokan High Point will need to compact a little. The first 2.5 miles is pretty low angle. Slow going in 6 inches, near impossible in multiple feet. Tremper, Hunter, Slide, Balsam Lake Mountain would be a go. Enjoy. RC
