Today there are about 4 inches of snow at Summit. It is wet underneath and there are lots of sticks down. 26F, blue extra worked well. By staying on fresh snow where prior tracks were wet I was able to avoid icing. I went out Ridge and down distal Christian to the crossover, then over to and down Leonard for a ways, until it started getting too wet. Then back. The snow is slippery and there is decent glide. I think you could down and back on the other upper loops and spend some time in the drop dead gorgeous winter forest. I cleared a lot of sticks and there are plenty more. I think today and early tomorrow morning will be OK, then it is supposed to warm up again.
It is November 13, and in the Village of Allegany we have 6 or so inches of snow on the ground. If anyone gets up to the trails, let us know what you find.

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.
