The Trails at Hidden Valley have now been cleared of all downed trees following the recent summer storm and we have also completed fall mowing of the grass on the trails. Now we wait for snow.
Heads up, summer trail users. Both the upper and lower Screamer should be considered "Closed" until Memorial Day. We have spread grass seed to help prevent erosion and would like the seed to set down some good roots. All our other trails are open to summer use with care required in low lying areas where conditions are soft and wet. Thanks for your cooperation
The ski season is over and the trails are open for summer useage, but care is required. Many low lying trail sections are soft and muddy yet. The frost is still coming out of the ground. Snow drifts still exist. This means that careless bike travel and even hikers can leave ruts and footprints that eventually dry in place and are hard to grade out. So please stay on the high ground and help us keep the trail system pristine. Thanks.
There were still skiers on the trails at hidden Valley yesterday and this morning, but the forecast is for highs in the 60s and lows above freezing, so the last vestiges of snow on the trails is melting fast. All grooming has been halted and there are many bare spots even where there still is some snow on certain trails. Please do not come out expecting to be able to ski, you may be disappointed. It has been a great ski season. Thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible and thanks to all the wonderfull folks keeping this tradition alive and well.
4 inches of fresh, heavy snow and we're back on our skis. Wayne has groomed the Powerline, Bambas and part of Somers for both skate and classic skiing. The woods are a winter wonderland but that won't last long if the high temps return. More snow in the forecast. Enjoy.
