Yesterday, I received a report from my friend David who went to Gore, he said that most of the trails were in great shape, including Sunway and their offshoots. Twister was well covered and Hawkeye and Chatemac over on the high peaks area again good cover and bumped up.  His comment for the day was given what the facility had to work with they did a great job. I am sure they will be making snow as much as they can over the next few days to get ready for the Presidents week vacation next week.

Seasonable weather has returned to New York State bringing with it fresh snow and great snowmaking weather which will set up a great week of skiing for the President’s Week Break. Ski conditions around the State are strong with plenty of open terrain. Ski areas will also be making snow to open additional trails and while there may or may not be snow in your backyard there is plenty at your local ski area.

Temperatures will quickly rebound for the rest of the weekend and will be absolutely perfect for skiing and riding all over New York State. Whether you are a seasoned skier or learning for the first time it will be a great week to enjoy the slopes around New York State.
