Our trails are open today with for skiing and snowshoeing. A lot the trails still have good coverage, but the wetter areas are melting quickly, as are exposed spots (like the Dene). The forecast says it will get to 50° today and close to 60° tomorrow, so this might be the last day we have enough snow.
Everyone must check in first and purchase admission at the Welcome Center.
Parking is in the main lot adjacent to the Welcome Center. For your safety and so we can be aware that people are on the trails, everyone, including members, must sign in at the Welcome Center. Thank you!
Also, please note that we are a pet free campus.
