LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

TUE, NOV 13

Lakes of the North: They rolled the race course loop. Pretty good early season skiing

MON, NOV 12

Nubs Nob: There is 14-16 inches of snow in the woods on the upper loops at Nubs! They have been packing and dragging the upper red loop since Saturday and it is in brilliant early season condition. All sections are pretty firm and you can easily use your best gear. They also packed the upper blue loop for the first time today. That loop is not as wide yet and is still a bit soft. Access is only available from the Valley Rd. trail spur. Before driving around make sure you buy your pass in the main lodge and give them some love for their commitment to the sport.

Bay Meadows GC: Well its not Swede Town but it is snow and early November at that. Skied Bay Meadows again today and the conditions were not as good as Saturday and Sunday but it was very doable. Actually got better just skiing it in a little. A bit icy but after a few loops it was pretty good. Ran into Ruth the HS coach and one of her HS team members. Seems like mid winter up in TC country. Hope others get some reports out, I know you are skiing somewhere.
