26 February 2021

Update: Trails were icy and hard packed and unable to be groomed today. Skiing was fast and trails well covered. A couple of washed out areas on Towhee were easy to ski around. Lippo's Loop was pretty good shape. Road to warming hut is rutted and icy. Forecast low of 35 degrees and mid to high 40's tomorrow so it should soften up.

Skier reports icy hard packed conditions in the morning with lots of tree pieces frozen in the trail and soft mashed potatoes when it warms up afternoon. There's still good coverage on the trails and we might squeak out another weekend of skiing if the weather cooperates. Warmer temperatures and rain in the forecast so who knows? Also, We've been trying to reach you regarding your car's extended warranty. Ha ha, just kidding. Woot!

Trails we normally groom were cleared yesterday by 10 or so volunteers. Ungroomed trails may still have fallen branches and hanging trees. Main road is open.

Tracking trails this morning.

Trails have been cleared and groomers will be out today to work their magic. About 12 volunteers helped to clear trees and branches from the upper trails that we groom. Thanks everyone. Skiing should be good today and improve as we approach the weekend. Wild and wonderful Western PA! Woot!

16 February 2021

And so it goes, the trails are a mess. Icy and covered with tree limbs and sticks. PACCSA volunteers are helping to clear as much as possible in the next couple days. Snow is forecasted for Wednesday night into Thursday so until then conditions are bad. Summit road is currently closed due to downed power lines and trees. We've had a great ski season up until now and this is just a mogul in the trail. We will update you on conditions once they become skiable again. woot(note that was in lower case letters and no exclamation point).

7 February 2021

Excellent conditions. Groomed upper trails, Loop, Interstate, Lippo's Loop, Alberts, and upper Towhee. It's great to see so many new first time trail users however groomed tracks are set for the enjoyment of skiers and we should direct non-skiers to the other more backcountry trails. PACCSA grooms about 10k of trails for skiing and there's 90k or more trails for snowshoes, hikers, dog walkers, etc. Trail maps are available at the kiosk across from the warming hut. Based on the forecast the snow isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Woot!
Bruce Cox2:12 pm 7 February 2021

Skier report today is the trails have a thin layer of ice on top of hard packed base. So poor conditions until we get more snow. Keep doing that snow dance.

22 January 2021

Denny and Bruce say that the conditions are excellent. This weekend should be stellar. Loop, Interstate, Lippos Loop, Alberts, and upper Towhee have been groomed and track set. Still too thin for lower Towhee to get to Silvermine. Soon! Keep doing that snow dance and enjoy. Woot!

17 January 2021

5-6" of new snow last night was enough for the groomer to set track on Loop, Interstate, Lippos Loop, Towhee, and Alberts trails. A good day of skiing was had by all. Lots of hikers and dogs have taken their toll on the groomers but maybe they'll be touched up tomorrow. You'll have to go up and see. Happy MLK day. Woot!
Bruce Cox4:33 pm 17 January 2021

16 January 2021

Mediocre to poor but skiable. Good areas but icy/wet washed out areas that you have to ski around. 5-6" powder on top of wet/icy base. Sounds terrible but its some of the best December skiing we've had in recent years. Say goodbye to 2020 with a last nordic ski. Happy new year! Woot!
Bruce Cox3:37 pm 26 December 2020

Excellent conditions today. Tomorrow should be excellent as well. A few icy spots should freeze up overnight so bring your "good" skis. Best December skiing we've had in a long time. Grooming of upper trails provided by PACCSA volunteers so after you thank them make sure you renew your membership and even consider a donation. PACCSA provides the webcam(s) also at Laurel Mt. and Laurel Ridge. Thank you and get out and ski! Woot!
