UPDATE: It’s been snowing all day. It is 2:30 and 0 degrees. In addition to earlier mentioned groomed trails, Spring Hill down, the Upper Portion of Dickey Loop were groomed today.
It was a wild, windy night in Essex. Temps plummeted and we received 6 inches of snow. At 8am, the temperature is negative 2. It is currently snowing lightly and we have light wind. The forecast is for a high of 2 degrees with a wind chill value as low as negative 26 degrees.
Short loops, lots of layers and coming to the inn between laps to warm up by the fire or with a hot beverage in the Dining Room or Flag Stop Bar is highly recommended. Today we are grooming Essex Road, Starlight, Pileated, Towering Pines, Essex Creek Up and Highline Down. Yesterday we groomed the entire complex, Spring Hill and the Upper stretch of Dickey Loop. We will post an update if we are able to groom more today. They are looking into the River Trail today, I will post an update about it’s condition as soon as I hear.
