Cross Country Ski Center
OPERATING STATUS: Open daily for cross country skiing and snowshoe hiking.
NEW HOURS: 9 am to 5 pm DST
WEATHER: For Tuesday, March 11th: Cloudy and mild, High temp 41 deg F.
CONDITIONS: At 7 am, cloudy skies and 35 deg F. with 2 inches new snow down. Base depths are 14-20 inches. All trails are well covered and 100% open. Snow surface is soft.
GROOMING: Temperatures will be surprisingly mild today, which may limit the grooming plan somewhat. If the new snow is too 'plastic', we just might wait for it to dry out tonight. In any event, we will get out on the Main Loop to pack and track this morning and see how it goes.
BACK COUNTRY REPORT: Touring the low angle trails will be fine, but skinning up and tele skiing down the drops could be a bit challengeing today as the surface has been skiing a bit crusty. Most climbing routes have been packed out. New snow storm Wednesday should improve it. Be sure to come in and sign out your route with the desk when you get your pass.
SNOWSHOE HIKING: A great alternative to skiing for access to our wilderness valley. Maps, trail advice and rental shoes are available at the Center.
WAX OF THE DAY: ouch. yellow klister? anyone? Plenty of swix F4 on your waxless skis will help the sticking.
Please Note: Stowe Nordic Center will not be participating in the Ski Vermont Nordic Season Pass Reciprocal Program this year. We are considering a new offer for next year.
