Snow Report - November 28, 2006

TRAIL OPEN FOR HIKING AWAITING SNOW-Thursday night's temperature dropped to negative 3 at the Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B. This marks the first time below zero since last winter! With only a dusting of snow on the Banadad Ski Trail, the below zero temperatures served to freeze the wet spot along the trail. What this means is that when the snow does come it will make grooming much easier. As for snow some is predicted for this weekend although it does not appear to be in significant amounts. Please "think snow" the frozen trails are ready.
