Ski Report – Saturday, December 15, 2012

The temperature yesterday afternoon started cooling at 3pm and the skiing became quite fast. Because of the warmer temps we will not be able to groom today.
There some small bare spots on the Manitou trail, but it really is pretty good, as is the Rolling Hills Trail. The Tall Pines trail is marginal (many pine needles), as is the Ad venture trail. Trapper’s Cabin Trail is OK.
