Thanks to Dan and Jack for letting us know there is still skiing at ASP. I got out there today. ASP groomed the couple of inches of new snowfall over the hard and fast base, and then another inch or so of snow sifted down. Conditions were good on the three upper loops. I have no info on Ridge-Patterson and Snowsnake. The snow is fast but there is enough loose snow for control. There are not many leaves or other debris in the tracks. The current forecast looks good for tomorrow and Wednesday AM. Leave a comment for what conditions you find going forward. -Allen
I am home for a long weekend and skied Ridge-Patterson Friday, Feb. 1. ASP was out grooming the old snow. The snow is fast and hard; tracks are shallow. The base covers the ground except for some spots in low areas in the saddle between the hairpin and the shelter, and near the Ridge-Patterson junction. There are oak and beech leaves in the tracks that made the kick wax grab unpredictably. Looking at the weather forecast, I expect this weekend to remain ski-able. I plan to switch to no-wax Saturday, both because of the leaves in the tracks, and the rising temperatures.
Please add comments to this post to report what conditions you find as we go forward into another predicted thaw. -Allen
We have had a foot of snow or thereabouts at my house, so there should be plenty of snow on the ASP trails. I am hoping for grooming, but it is Sunday, so we will see. Add a comment to this post to report what conditions you find!
It is January and we have no snow as of this date. I am going to be out of town for most of the next couple of months, so if ASP gets enough snow to ski, it will be up to y’all to add a comment to this post to report on conditions.

The 10/25/14 work day and pot luck was a huge success/ Crews cleaned and cut back all trails but Snow Snake. The Christian Hollow snow fence was also re-set.
And the chili selection at the pot-luck was of gormet proportions!
Remember to thank the gritty skiers that help keep the trails clear.
