HAPPY EVE OF THE NEW YEAR! The last day of 2022. Come enjoy it in Essex!
9:00am: Final Report of the Day:
GROOMED: Starlight, Cabin and Caboose Lanes, All of Essex Road, Kendi’s Crossing, Up Side of Highline Loop, Down Side of Essex Creek Loop, Down Side of Towering Pines, Down Side Pileated (pretty chunky), Boy Scout Crossover
7:15am – GROOMED so far: Essex Road, Kendi’s Crossing, Up Side of Highline Loop, Down Side of Essex Creek Loop, Boy Scout Crossover
6:30am – The really good news: We received 3 inches of snow in the last 24 hours! The not as good of news: It is currently 31 degrees and it did not cool down much below 30 during the night. HOWEVER, the groomer is reporting mixed results. Thus far, trails that are less woodsy and more open are coming out pretty darn good. Trails in the denser woods, especially by the creeks, are coming out inconsistent and somewhat chunky. The grooming plans for day have changed. We will update as we get more info.
We are forecasted for a high of 35 degrees with a 40% chance of snow. It looks like we will be getting back to cooler temperatures as the week goes on.
By the way, how do mountains stay warm?
They put on their snowcaps!
