                                         OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM

 

 

 

02/26/17  5:33AM  25 degrees and snowing.  Noon forecast of 31 and flurries.  51% chance of snow at noon.  15-20MPH breeze from the NW.  2" of new snow overnight with another 1-2 inches in the forecast during the day today.  I will be grooming for skating and set tracks on a 13 inch base of packed powder/ wind blown base.  Monday and Tuesday have forecast highs of 42-43 before getting colder again with snow for Thursday and Friday.  Lots of snow - variable conditions and spring training for the Mets.  All is good.  266 inches of snow for the season.  Six weeks of skiing left until April 15th.

 

02/25/17  6:39AM   50 degrees and cloudy.  Noon forecast of 56 and possible thunderstorms - 70% chance of rain and a daytime high of 59.  Sunday has a forecast high of 35 with AM snow showers.

Most of the forecast has snow starting at around 7PM tonight with a westerly wind.  With wind direction and colder temperatures I would not be surprised by accumulating snow by Sunday morning.  As always I am more confident about my forecast after it is on the ground.  14 inch base of spring conditions / wet snow.  If you ski, bring dry socks and a change of clothes for the ride home.  264 inches of snow for the season.

 

02/24/17  6:26AM  34 degrees and overcast.  Noon forecast of 55 and cloudy with a 37% chance of rain and a daytime high of 59.  Very similar for Saturday with a daytime high of 59 and a higher chance of rain.  Switching back to snow for Sunday.  17 inch base of snow with spring skiing conditions.  I hesitate to tell  skiers that it is probably best to wait a few days.  Yesterday turned out much better than expected.  The radar today already shows rain.  Possible later today or early Saturday might have skiing without rain.  Personally, I think I would wait.  264 inches of snow for the season.

The Osceola Tug Hill Cross Country Ski Center Inc is dedicated to the best cross country skiing possible.  With this in mind, we only offer cross country skiing (winter months).  No hiking, no tubing, no pets, no snowshoes, no disc golf in the winter months.  (two eighteen hole disc golf courses and pro shop available June 1 through October 31 of each year)

 

40k of groomed ski trails for both classic and skate techniques.  Groomed daily with an Alpina Sherpa featuring a 4 cylindar Peugot engine and a 84 inch Yellowstone track system groomer that get 2 passes on the entire trail system. 

 

Largest selection of nordic or cross country ski equipment in the northeast.  Hundreds of skis available to rent under our RENTAFLEXIBILY program where all rentals are credited toward purchase if you so desire.

If you golf when the pro shop is not open, the kiosk at the first hole on the south (lodge) side of the road has course maps, scorecards and pencils.  There is an honor box for the $5 green fees which entitles you unlimited play for the day.  In the pro shop we have product from Innova, Vibram and Discraft.  We have a wide selection of discs for sale or rent, along with misc. bags, accessories etc. 

 

APPOINTMENTS AT OFF HOURS ARE NOT A PROBLEM, BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO CALL FIRST TO MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE AROUND.

 

 

We groom with an Alpina Sherpa.  This is a 1.6L, 4 cylindar truck on a snowmobile frame.  An Italian made machine designed for pulling and climbing in the Alps.  This machine produces 75HP and 82 lb-ft.

 

One of the main advantages we have in Osceola Is a wealth of fresh soft snow.  At 0.38 pounds per square inch ground pressure the Shepa allows us the abilty to groom - renovate - pack any amount of snow.  This lets our skiing stay firm to the ski for skate skiing.  Set track for classic and no rug burns for those inadvertant sudden stops (falls).  More specs. and pictures on www.alpinasnowmobiles.com

 

I use a Yellowstone 84 inch Ginzu groomer. With 250 pounds of down pressure we have the ability to smooth out all snow regardless of the age.  The Alpina is 1180 pounds dry weight, the Ginzu groomer is 330 pounds.  To give you a feel for the size of this equipment, the work class snowmobile from Bombardier the Skandic super wide track is 650 pounds.  Two passes on all the trails with a touch of overlap gives you trail widths of 12 to 14 foot with classic track and skate lanes.   www.yellowstonetrack.com

 

04/16/14  7:25AM  Closed for the ski season.  3 inches of fresh snow this morning.  0k open for skiing.  Thanks for your support.  Hope to see you for disc golf in June or next year skiing. 308 inches for the season.
