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

18 January 2019

Light powder snow atop solid base with about 7" on the mountain. Grooming all and getting ready for a busy 3 day MLK weekend. Lots of furloughed skiers from WDC here and while skiing not making a living! Hope everyone gets out to ski soon and often!

Ski legs all worn out as winter cold and light snow continue on daily basis. Looking forward to a busy holiday weekend with crazy weather and perhaps some new snow along with sleet and everything else! Trails here are packed, thin, yet dry and 100% skiable. Cheers Nordic Crazies!

Rime ice coats our magic crystal palace world lately. Scenic is a light way to describe it! 50km open, 1200 acres, 1200 vertical, 10 shelters, gourmet café, telemark glades, and Pittsburgh's never take for granted WYEP usually rockin' inside the lodge.

Rime ice paints the mountains like only Jack Frost can do! Powder skiing in a most scenic surrounding! Good forecast and hope we all get out there and ski ski ski!

Ski the mountains....all our trail open, lots of grooming, and cool weather forecast equals happy skiers. Just enough base around 6" average creates a Nordic paradise. Happy Return of Winter!

5" new over a thin base yet all 50 km open and we are grooming as much as we can, 10" on ground at 4000. Skiathon and Snowshoe Discovery today and powder skiing! Cheers.

Snowfarm to the rescue where we have groomed to near perfection...all other trails kinda like flat tire skiing and not covered well enough. Full weekend of events and delicious meals at the café. Yeah Winter Returns!
Chip Chase8:14 am 12 January 2019

11 January 2019

Six inches has fallen with lots of sideways snow drifted to our convenience...the snowfarm is really deep and other trails are really not quite deep enough to suggest commercial skiing, especially hills! Snowshoeing is fine as well as rock skis. Full set of special events including Brook Trout snowshoe walk, Kids Clinic, Café dinners, Yoga in the Yurt and a WEEKEND!!!

Dusting of snow makes things whiter than yesterday yet it is a hike situation here in Canaan Valley. Café doing its best to entertain disappointed skiers, some strips of snow for crazy attempts at sliding and a short yet well used strip of snow with sledders not really allowed yet looking the other way. Happy New Year to All!

Little white stripes across the meadows creating about 5 km of broken ski trail, wet granular with mixed mud, cow poop, and leaves. Free skiing today and we are shoveling to make some connections. Café dinner next 4 nights will keep skiers somewhat occupied.

Powder skiing rocks on...Day # 28 skiable, our legs are getting tired! Snowfarm snowcat groomed to near perfection...rest of the trails footpacked as trail work, rock tossing, and miles of ditch digging coming to fruition. 6" at 4000. Skiable! Happy Holidays to All!

17 degrees sunny calm BLUEBIRD day of skiing with just enough snow to roam about anywhere. The snowfarm was buried deep with feets of snow and we Pisten Bullied it out for skating and striding yesterday. Happy Holidays to everyone!

Merry Christmas Skiers! 50 km open with caution as ground is still warm and snow is windblown in the fields near the lodge. 10" last few days settles down to 3"- 7". Open today and all thru the week and plan to snowcat groom the snowfarm early tomorrow for nice skiing most of the holiday week. Happy New Year!

24 December 2018

24 and windy after a 5" new snow atop barely 2-3 inches and so skiing is better yet caution with warm wet ground. We are grooming and the snowfarm is buried in 3-5 foot drifts and unskiable until we pull the Pisten Bulley out later today. 50 km open and 15 groomed for now. Naomi featured in the pic at WG midstation yesterday and she made us go all the way to Baldy and back, challenging in places yet FUN!

24 clear BLUBIRD day with light snow in forecast and some on-the-marginal-side skiing in the meadows and snowfarm. Plan to groom all of what we can. 4" in the woods and more where it drifted in the open. New WG website is up and will help in finding info. Happy Holidays to all!

Skiable day 22 and hangin' in there barely. Wind has been depositing fresh powder on the snow farm. Picture from yesterday. The "R" word is in the forecast and our limited skiing may head south. Happy Holidays to All!
Chip Chase8:53 am 13 December 2018

11 December 2018

Cold high pressure lingers, 18 degrees in blazing sunshine and skiable once again along the snow farm and upper trails where not your best skis are needed. Snowy start to another great season and Happy Holidays to all!

Busy Saturday with snowfarm skiing and many going for it on marginal cover (4"-5"). 110 season passers and day # 18 skiable pretty sweet for this time of autumn. Great Winter Ahead!
Chip Chase8:15 am 9 December 2018

8 December 2018

Handy Dandy snowfarm to the rescue where set track and deeper powder snows create some sweet skiing conditons....elsewhere kinda skiing on flat tires and a wonderful place for old skis or your friends that you are mad with...Café, shoveling snow where needed, and the good hang out with fellow skiers and friends. Go Winter!
Chip Chase8:17 am 8 December 2018

7 December 2018

Wind blown snowfarm the only ski trails we can openly support...others please use caution and skis not real happy with anymore. Shoveling snow and grooming what we have...no snow forecasted so it appears to be a marginal weekend although we are open, skiing, café, and ready to ski every flake! Cheers to winter.
Chip Chase8:38 am 7 December 2018

6 December 2018

6" new snow over nuttin'...thin yet the winds are drifting deeper bases along the snow farm and will groom there this morning. Will see about the rest of the trails yet it will surely be thin and marginal. Last eve several skiers yet one skied onto warm ground and froze up. Scrapers being installed at every intersection!
Chip Chase8:41 am 6 December 2018

28 November 2018

Mini blizzard in teens and snowing sideways...lots of wind and drifting as we are open for skiing. About 6" has fallen over warm ground and so green conditions prevail mid atlantic Nords! BIG PARTY this weekend our 37th Annual Jack Frost Celebration likely in the rain!
Chip Chase9:05 am 28 November 2018

23 November 2018

Sunny and chilly as we regroom the little bits of snow we have...it's there and MUST BE USED. Free skiing this weekend, trail work, Wreath Workshop Sunday, café is open, shop is rockin' and we are open for the season. Skiable Day #8 although rough thin conditions so far. Happy Holidays to All!
Chip Chase10:21 am 23 November 2018

Little bits of old snow and now new freshies. Marginal yet forecasts point toward Friday being the best of the week. Promise to update.

Open, skiing, and grooming snow for the real first day of the new winter season. Only 3 or 4 inches snow yet it is thick and keeps one off the leaves. Posting fresh photos on our website, have a great winter everyone! chip
