Trail Conditions Going Forward From Thursday, 2/11/16

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.

Successful Workday!

Jack Luzier reports that a beautiful, sunny day was experienced by a dozen members and friends with our workday on Sunday, November 15, 2015. All upper trails, including upper Ridge, and Patterson were cleared except large trees. All trails were snow covered. Jo Ann brought copious refreshments. Tom Livak from the Park was there initially; we will be reporting problems to him.
Thank you very much to all who helped out. Your contribution should be appreciated by all using the trails. It’s folks like you who help
keep Allegany Nordic viable.

Work Day Horse Power

1025141344aThe 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.
