XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 11/07

We received about 3 inches of snow throughout the day yesterday. It is plenty enough for dogs and babies to enjoy (see below), and may even allow some diehards the opportunity to scratch the skiing itch (rock skis recommended), but there are still parts of the trail that lack full snow coverage, and the snow we do have is still thin. So, expect to "find" some leaves and dirt if you do go, and know that you may also find a lot of fun!

Ginzu Dana will be rolling all the trails this morning in an effort to begin establishing a base – we do not expect good conditions to come of the rolling; it is more of an effort to push the snow into the ground.

It’s looking nice and cold in the 10 day forecast, is promising for snow-making in the near future… stay tuned πŸ™‚

With all this November snow, it’s definitely time to get your ski kit fully ready!! We are open every day, and the Pre-Season Sale is in full swing. Shop our deep selection of winter and XC clothing, and cross country skis and packages, all on sale!

FYI, the Stone Turtle Cafe will open in early December, but until then, we do have a couple tables set up for BYO picnic lunches in the Day Lodge. Or, enjoy your post-rock-ski snack in the new outdoor Ice Dome Igloo (pictured with Donnie above).

We hope to see you soon!

We enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back! Beautiful trails and friendly skiers and staff. First ski of the season (and first pregnant ski) in the books! 😁

Beautiful day!

Wish I was there.

The trails are freshly snow-covered after the 2 inches from yesterday! By the way, does anyone know what these tracks are from? Looks like a large bird/small dinosaur was wandering the trails... @ Cross Country Ski Headquarters ... See MoreSee Less

Definitely small dinosaur. πŸ˜‚

I’m going with Dino the dinosaur!

Are the dinosaurs tasty if you catch them? I would think they taste like chicken. New dish at the Stone Turtle Day Lodge: small dinosaur soup!

we are coming up this weekend and look forward to trying out our new skis. You only got 2 inches yesterday? I am downstate, we got 8 in the city, I would love to share some with you.

I like the dinosaur theory. πŸ˜„

Emu on the loose? That is a very large turkey, long stretch.

Those look like Turkey tracks. They won't hurt you if you leave em alone. Watch out for train tracks though.

Baby rapture😳

Turkey of course!!
