    14 inches measure at the snow gauge including 2 of fresh powder over crusty base this morning. A little slow going and rocks poking through in some sections but still quite skiable. Liquid glide on the no-wax rock skis. Don't plan to set your record for the Church Loop or ski Red Death for the first time this season but it's all about the base and we still have one.

    The trails are becoming hard packed.  The strong sun yesterday glazed the trails in open or south facing areas.  Off track skiing is not recommended because of the breakable crust.   I think conditions today will be "fair to poor".  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore received 2 - 3 cm of snow overnight and this morning.  After a ski around County Forest, I would rate conditions as "fair+" - not quite "good".   Skiing is quite pleasant in areas where there was a good track before the thaw.  Hills could be a bit tricky.  I would strongly recommend against off-track skiing - you will break through the crust with almost every step.  The snow gauge is at 40 cm, so there's still a good base.  There are a lot of twigs and branches down because of recent high winds - please help with the pickup.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Sadly, today marked the end of a stretch of great skiing conditions.  Kolapore received rain and temperatures have now dropped.  The trails are likely to be crusty/icy until we get some fresh snow, or warmer temperatures soften the snow.  I would recommend staying off the trails.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Skiing for the past week has been "as good as it gets" at Kolapore.  Saturday should still be good.  However, that will likely end on Saturday evening with the predicted "mixed precipitation".  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore received a few cm of new snow in the past 24 hours.  Ski conditions are excellent.  Get out and enjoy!  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Ski conditions on the Kolapore Trails remain very good.  We had 5+ cm of new snow yesterday, which helped to freshen the trails.  Get out and enjoy the great skiing before the +4 and "mixed precipitation" that's forecast for Sunday.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    I did a long Kolapore ski today, and conditions were about as good as you get at Kolapore.  The trails generally have good tracks.  The light flurries today helped to freshen the trails.  There are still a few branches and trees down from the wind storm last weekend.  If you can, please help clear the trails.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore received another 5+ cm of snow today.  Conditions are generally excellent on the trails, with substantial new snow on a firm base.  The trails are gradually getting skied-in after the heavy snowfall on Monday.  Trail breaking is reasonably easy.   The parking lot was plowed on Tuesday.  Because of the recent strong winds, there are many branches and some trees down.  If possible, please remove branches.  If the job is too big send an e-mail to info@kolaporetrails.org, and we'll see what we can do, although some clearing will have to wait until the spring.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Today was great!  And sooo beautiful!  More trail breaking to be done but it’s not tough as it’s still light and fluffy. I had to ski county forest side as lot was not plowed in the morning but was plowed by 11:30am.    Enjoy!!
