XC Ski Headquarters: Ski Report Thursday March 8, 2012
Temps have cooled off. We did receive some rain last night and depending on how fast the snow pack dries out we may be able to open some of the trails for classic skiing later this morning. In spite of the warm weather there is still a lot of dense snow pack in the forest and on the trails.
