At this time I have not personally been on the trails or had any direct reports. Below is what ASP posted today. Please leave a comment if you have been on the trails.
2/11/2016 Allegany State Park Cross-country Ski Report:
The base that we had previously established has almost completely disappeared over the last two weeks. The Art Roscoe Ski area has received approximately 6” of fresh snow over the last 24 hours. We are currently under a Lake Effect Snow Warning until 4:00 PM. The National Weather Service issued a Lake Effect Snow Watch that goes into effect all day Friday 2/12. Park staff is taking advantage of these two systems in an attempt to roll all trails and re-establish a base. It is looking very promising to be able to set track for this weekend.
The Art Roscoe Loppet has been postponed until Sunday, Feb. 28.
Stay tuned to www.heartrateup.com for latest news regarding the Loppet.

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.
