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.
Friends: The ski season at Hidden Valley may finally be over for the year. The base of packed snow is now quite deteriorated with lots of bare ground. Grooming has been suspended. There is snow in the forecast and cool temps, so things could change. Stay tuned.
Friends: High in the fifties forecast for today and rain for tomorrow. Not good for the last die hard skiers of the season. According to Wayne, "The end is near... unless we get more snow, which may happen later this week. Currently things are getting a little boney. Tracks have burned through in many places and bare spots are becoming more abundant, but Hidden Valley still remains skiable." So this may be it. Come on out one last day.
Friends: We received about 4 inches of fresh snow Friday night, on top of our remaining base. Our main trails have all been groomed for both skate and classic skiing. Conditions are near ideal for this late in March and the woods are a winter wonderland. Come on out and enjoy the last days of a great skiing season.
