There is good snow cover on all trails and conditions are fast! You may encounter some thin spots but they are easy to avoid. We highly recommend you avoid the field between the biathlon lodge and Rte 73 (the trail closest to the access road, Bobsled Run Lane, has been mapped out of bounds) as there are piles of gravel left over from summer hiking trail construction. Hope to see you there,
