Snow conditions history for North Woods

Thank you to all the snow conditions reporters who provide these updates for us.

27 March 2022

Good morning - It started out very wet yesterday morning but, by evening, we had accumulated a few inches of dry snow. Very cold this morning with gusty winds up to 35 mph forecast for today and continued snow - possibly another 4 inches. Grassier trails of the NW should be decent today to take advantage of the Spring surprise Winter encore. Most of the trails are clear of fallen trees - there's a pretty large tree down near the top of the upper North Woods loop as you begin to descend along the Galecrest border but, it's passable.

Good Morning - 4" to 6" of snow yesterday. Ground was very wet prior to arrival of snow but sharply falling temperatures firmed conditions up by evening. High winds have calmed down but it remains very cold this morning and the coverage is variable due to drifting. Temperatures should warm up into the 30s this afternoon and conditions should be OK outside of the usual wet spots and rocky areas. Enjoy the extra daylight today...

Good morning - Conditions improved thru the day yesterday and remained very nice thru to this morning. In fact, we received an unexpected accumulation of about an inch of powder overnight to freshen the trails. A lot colder (about 19 F) but calm with light flurries continuing at this moment - rather pleasant out. Should be very nice conditions again today in the North Woods and surrounding areas.

Hello - Mild temperatures and sun softened up the snow quite a bit by the end of the week but coverage on the NW trails remains good and we were spared the rain last evening and. received an inch+ of snow. The snow was very wet underneath but the surface was not too bad early this morning ... there will likely be some wet spots remaining and conditions thru the day will depend on how the temperatures hold. Currently, temperatures are pretty mild with a bit of a breeze in areas.

Conditions turned out to be excellent in the North Woods yesterday - low traffic on the trails yesterday gives the opportunity to experience similar conditions today. Starting out cold again this morning but mostly sunny with temperatures reaching milder 30's by noon. A great day to get out onto the North Woods Trails! Note that there has been no road maintenance beyond the upper Tunnel Road parking lot - risk of getting stuck past there is pretty high.

Just a quick update - conditions have shaped up nicely since earlier this morning...about 3 inches of fresh powder and some additional accumulation expected thru the day. Still very cold - around 12F - but a nice bright day. Condition of the crust may be variable but, with the new snow cover and cold, conditions are generally very good.

Rain and high temperatures mid-week turned the base to an Italian Ice consistency but the base held up surprisingly well with coverage remaining generally good except where drainage cut through. Temperatures fell sharply thru the day yesterday combining with the freezing rain early Friday morning to form a thick hard crust but the base is at least now frozen again and firmed up again. Light snow thru Friday evening and early this morning has accumulated to about an inch so far with flurries continuing thru the day. Skiing in the existing tracks should be decent and skiing on the untracked base could be OK depending on whether your skis are wide enough to keep you from breaking thru the crust. It's very cold again this morning with temperates in the NW currently around 12-14F but winds are calm.

Conditions remain about the same as yesterday - no new accumulation overnight but some snow accumulation forecast for today and conditions in the NW are very good in any case. Very cold out again this morning (feels a bit colder than yesterday) but calm. Looks like another beautiful day.

Several decent snowfalls thru the week and little wear and tear on the trails due to cold temperatures. It remains very cold today but eh snow conditions are excellent - about an inch of fresh snow overnight to dress the trails and more snow forecast this weekend ... in fact, it's snowing now. Should be a great weekend to get out but dress for the cold!

Trail conditions remain very good this morning. Milder temperatures today with calm winds and mostly clear skies with some sun make for comfortable weather for an outing in the North Woods today. Snow is forecast to bring maybe 1 to 3 inches of fresh snow by later this afternoon.

Over 16 inches of snow thru the week. There was heavy drifting with the initial snowfall on Monday but coverage is still good and there have been several inches of new snow thru the week - warmer temperatures mid-week and sunshine followed by colder temperatures have firmed up the surface but conditions are still very good and there's a possibility of some new snow this weekend. Temperatures dipped below zero yesterday but not as cold this weekend (even though still cold) and sunny skies forecast for today. Should be a nice day to get out in the North Woods!

A dusting 0f fresh snow last evening accumulating to 0.5 to 1 ". Temperatures are very cold this morning - around 10F - but winds are relatively calm and it should warm up as the morning progresses with sunny skies forecast for today. All-in-all a nice day to get out but be prepared for cold conditions - dress warm and minimize exposure to bare skin ...

Happy New Year everyone! Well, it was a rainy December but looks like we're getting a decent start to the New Year. Cold temperatures and dry conditions thru this week allowed the Christmas rains to drain off and the. ground to dry out a bit and firm up - ground conditions were excellent to accept the snowfall thru last evening with all of it contributing to accumulation rather than melting in. We ended up with about 6 inches of dry snow accumulation - not enough to ski the rockier trails but should be very good conditions to ski the grassier trails in the North Woods and surrounding areas ... should be nice for snowshoeing in Roaring Run area as well. North Woods trails were generally clear of branches and down trees but there is a large tree down across the Loop Trail from the lower Tunnel Road parking area just as as you head down the hill towards the Shaffer Run bridge - about 150 yards from the connector trail that leads to the meadow. It's very cold but winds are generally calm. Dress for cold conditions - temperature is currently 17F but is expected to drop a little further and remain around 15F thru the day.
