Got out for a few hours today, things are good and getting better. Over/Undercliff have a few scratchy spots, as does Old Minnewaska. Oakwood, Forest Drive, and Long/Short Woodland are good.

Just got back from a moonlit ski, there's still good coverage everywhere! Go out early on Friday, this stuff is going to get waterlogged by lunch, and then the weekend rain is gonna wash it away.

It's all gone until the next round of snow. There are a few patches here and there, but not what I'd call skiable.

Things are pretty good, but there's a few scratchy spots. Not as windblown as expected, but you still wouldn't want to bring a new pair of skis out.

Undercliff: little pedestrian traffic, ski trail broke out all the way to Boxcar Boulder. Basic snowmobile track from there to Rhododendron Bridge.

Overcliff: groomed, lots of traffic.

Old Minnewaska, Laurel Ledge, Humpty Dumpty, Short Woodland, Lakeshore: groomed, enjoy the solitude.

None of the groomed carriage roads are tracked for classic skiing.

Get after it before Sunday's warm precip wrecks this stuff.

Out to the southern leg of the Northville Placid Trail yesterday. Good coverage to about two feet deep with 7 inches of freshies on top. This is just down the road west of Lapland Lake, so condtions at Lapland should be stellar as well.

Ski partners with us mentioned Trapps Carriage road from Trapps Bridge to Minnewaska as being a little boney, so we were quite happy to be where we were.

We got just enough yesterday to make it do-able if you want to push it and get out...or wait for the mother load tomorrow.
