Sad to say a big snow storm just missed us and ski conditions on the trails at Hidden Valley are not in good enough shape to hold the High School ski meet that was planned for Saturday. Some sections of some trails can be skied but conditions are still marginal. Take care.
Everyone is welcome. Come on out and join us for the annual ENSC general membership meeting at the Chalet starting with a potluck lunch at 5:00 P.M. followed by the Board Meeting at 6:00 P.M. Hear about all the projects completed this year and the plans for next year. See you there.
Some sections of some Hidden Valley ski trails are groomed and skiable. All trails have sections that are icy and rutted with dirt and rocks showing in random spots. Great care needs to be taken skiing these trails now. The weather forecast is for more days above freezing in the day and below freezing over night, with no significant snow in sight. Please check the trail grooming board at the trail head kiosk for current information before skiing.
Recent rains and warm weather have melted much of our snow base and returning cold weather now leaves frozen slush with ruts and rocks showing. Trails are not formally closed but skiing is not recommended. What we need now is more snow. Stay tuned.
Hidden Valley is getting a little more freah snow tonight and with cold temperatures the grooming is going well. It is still early to declare victory but our hopes are high that ski conditions are improving. Here's hoping the cold weather holds.
