Ski conditions update 12/29 (S of ADK)

Not seeing much recently on this site for skiing, I thought I’d provide some ski condition update for Saratoga & S Warren County. The good news is that with the few inches before Christmas (later settled by rain & cold), plus the 6-8” ending on Christmas day, many local spots have good skiing – and are free.

For the skinny ski fans – including 2 of my daughters - Cole’s Woods (off exit 19, near Crandall Park & the YMCA in Queensbury) has groomed the 5K loop for both skating & classic style. Conditions Wed 12/29 were very good except for some downed pine cones & tree debris. They have a lighted trail for night. Park behind Inside Edge ski shop on Rt 9.

The Lake George Recreation area (W of exit 21 near transfer station) had good cover & ski (or SS) tracks on most of its trails as of Tues 12/28. The trail up the W side of the mountain 200 yds after the first bridge was rough & water flowing – so not attractive yet. No grooming here (that I’ve ever seen).

Wilton Preserve (off exit 16) was skiable before Christmas and had been rolled. Surely good snow there now. Not extensive nor any real hills, but nice to get out.

With the local snow & verrrrry cold temps, I haven’t needed to drive any further yet. Skied the XC trails at Prospect Mtn (E of Bennington) the week before Christmas. They had great snow, and continue to have equal or more snow than other ADK locations other than Tug Hill. There, Lapland Lake & Garnet Hill are common destinations for groomed skiing - with a fee of course.

N toward Lake Placid finally got more snow, with good conditions reports periodically posted here: http://www.jackrabbittrail.org/conditions . Paul Smiths appears to have had the most reliable snow before the Christmas storm.

Enjoy winter! Any reports from ADK trails? Botheration?, Hoffman notch?, Pharaoh Lake?
