    Overnight Kolapore received several cm of new snow.  It is very difficult to tell how much, because the strong winds moved it around.  I would guess that we received no more than 5 cm.  The good news is that there didn't seem to be any freezing rain or freezing drizzle.  The County Forest parking lot is well plowed.

    Kolapore has received a few cm of snow over the past 24 hours.  This should help to freshen the trails.  I think conditions should be quite good today, although I'm still planning to wear rocks skis.  I know from skiing on Thursday that there are rocks that aren't snow covered.  Based on conditions yesterday, both the Kolapore and County Forest parking lots should be in good condition.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Thursday afternoon Kolapore had some light freezing drizzle.  Overnight we had a cm or two of powder snow.  I think the skiing will be OK - the freezing drizzle coating was quite thin.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Over the past 24 hours, Kolapore has received about 10 cm of new snow.  Skiing should be good, although there will still be some rocks.  The County Forest parking lot has been carefully plowed this morning.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    The warm weather and sun on Sunday melted the snow surface, and it has now refrozen.  Tracks will be icy.  Skiing is not recommended until we get the new snow that is predicted for mid-week.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    This morning I did a long and enjoyable ski on many of the trails on the east side of the Kolapore system.  However, the snow is thin - 17 cm (7") at the snow gauge, which means that there is about 10 cm under your skis.  There are rocks showing, and caution is required on some of the rockier hills.  On Sunday the temperature is predicted to get above freezing relatively early.  That's when many skier have problems with skis clumping, so I recommend putting glider on your skis.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Kolapore received 10+ cm of snow overnight.  This means that skiing is again possible, although caution will be required because we lost a lot of our base.  Rocks won't be far below the surface in some locations.  The County Forest parking lot just off Grey Road 2 has been well plowed this morning.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    After the very warm temperatures yesterday, and the subsequent cold temps, the trails are hard and icy.   There are also quite a few rocks sticking through the crust.  I strongly recommend against any skiing.  There is a good chance of a significant amount of snow overnight - I will post again Friday morning.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    With the warm temperatures yesterday, followed by colder temperatures overnight, the tracks will be icy in the morning but will soften as it warms.  This pattern will likely continue for a day or two.  Because of the relatively thin snow base, rocks will start to reappear.  Sadly, a few Kolapore veterans are calling this the "worst ski season ever".  We are still hoping for a late season return of cold weather and snow.  Kolapore Trail Guide

    Yesterday and overnight the south end of Kolapore received about 8 cm of new snow.  This is on top of the crust that was left after the rain on Thursday.  I skied in the County Forest and vicinity this morning, and conditions were better than expected.  Almost all rocks were covered, and there was enough snow to set decent tracks.  HOWEVER, some skiers were icing/clumping this morning, and that is likely to get worse as temperatures warm.  Be sure to prepare your skis and bring a scraper.  Kolapore Trail Guide
