Please remember DOGS are NOT allowed through the gate to the upper trails. The sign is currently not in place but we'll get one up there.

Conditions: Mostly good. It should firm up considerably tonight, and coverage was pretty much complete. Not quite enough snow to put in a classic track quite yet. If Monday's storm materializes or it dumps a bit overnight tonight (Friday) that might get us there!
