My life was changed and would never be the same again. I can’t help but think much of it was due to those absolutely magnificent tracks laid down by Dave Forbush over 35 years ago.

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

THU, NOV 15

Bay Meadows GC: Glad to see so many trail reports, as mentioned earlier by another skier, Bay Meadows still has some very good skiing. The skate loop is around 2.5 K and has been skied in nicely. Skied over 20k with Milan.

Bay Meadows GC: Still good skating as of noon today. Grass beginning to show near the road but avoidable

Michaywe: Golf course at Michaywe has a frozen base and some fluff over the top. Just in from a nice skate ski - some of the best early season skiing in a while. Usually the ground is too warm and you get the slushy icing situation but not today! All good.

Noquemanon Trail-Forestville: Forestville Real Grooming Report: It has been 4 days of skiing on the roller packed Noque to 17k, Animoosh, Papasay, Boozhoo, Zhing, and the stadium. Continued cool weather has kept trails in good shape. The surface is uneven but coverage is very good.

Our call for feedback produced comments from Jack, Laurie, Vivian and Joe just to name a few. The most useful write up follows: “Out at 9:30 AM and the center of the trail is well packed, narrow and bumpy, and the edges powdery. Around 12 K the Noque path widens and continues to 14 and skating is good. Coming back the hill demands more than the usual caution and the sun improved the snow condition. Awaiting good conditions for the equipment to groom. Jack”
