    It rained at Kolapore overnight, and the temperature has dropped below freezing.  The trails will be icy - I strongly recommend against trying to ski until we get some new snow.  There is still a decent base of snow.  I will post again as soon as conditions change.  That may happen later today, because there is snow in the forecast, and it is snowing lightly as I post at 10 AM.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Happy Days! It's spring skiing time. You can practically hear the sap starting to run. No wax skis if you got 'em. Don't fear the klister if you don't. Plenty of snow in the bush. (The snow gauge is down to a mere 55cm/22") Take your time! Pick an easier route. You can always extend. Go easy on the hills. Time your visit. Late morning when its soft but not too soft. Bring a snack and a beverage. See you on the trails.

    On Wednesday the temperature got up to +4 at Kolapore.  With the subsequent cold temperatures, the tracks will be icy.  There is a dusting of new snow.  The trails are likely to be treacherous.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    The high yesterday was just above 0, so there was some glazing on the snow.  Today initially there will still be some fresh snow in places but there will also be glazed areas.  As the temperature warms up we will get more mashed potatoes snow.  Unfortunately that means that with the cold temperatures tomorrow, the skiing on Thursday is likely to be icy unless we get new snow.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore received a few cm of damp snow yesterday, but no rain.  It is snowing lightly at the moment (8 AM).  Conditions may be a bit tricky today - there is good potential for "clumping".

    Conditions are generally great as of this morning. The entire outside perimeter has a good track set despite the new snow. Kolapore church-> paradise loop is also in great shape.

    Unfortunately some portions of the northwest passage have been post holed and have snowshoe tracks, plus some snowmobile tracks. Despite this it is still great conditions to ski.  Conditions will be getting faster on Sunday.

    Over the past two days (Wednesday and Thursday) , the skiing in the south half of the trail system was as good as it gets at Kolapore.  Southern Crossing and Quiet Pastures were nice if you like quiet trails.  Get out and enjoy.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore received 25 cm of new snow overnight, and a few more cm during the day.  There's a lot of snow in the bush - 75cm/30" at the Kolapore snow gauge.  The Kolapore parking lot was plowed today, and a number of skiers started from there, so some of the popular trails should be broken.  There were a few skiers in from the east end of the County Forest.  Enjoy the prime mid-winter conditions (but be prepared for potential trail breaking in the short term.)  Kolapore Trail Guide

    I did a long ski today, and it was one of the best ski days so far this winter.  Hills were delightful.  The only downside I noticed was that a large group had snowshoed and walked in from Kolapore and then followed the Kolapore Church trail for a while.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore has received 5 cm so far, and it is snowing at the moment.  It sounds like there will be more light snow during the day, and possibly heavy snow overnight.  Skiing should be good, but parking may be tricky tomorrow.  I will post an update later today.  Kolapore Trail Guide
