MARCH 2 MEETING UPDATE - SEE SKI CENTER FOR SALE PAGE!
04/20/19. 4:47AM. Missed the report yesterday due to way to much playing with a 3 and 5 year old. Currently 49 degrees and rain. Noon forecast of 66 and cloudy. Daytime forecast of 71 and clearing. Sunday 66 with variable cloudiness. Monday 65 and mostly cloudy with showers. 1.11 inch of rain already in the last 24 hours.
04/18/19 5:37AM 46 degrees and raining, Noon forecast of 57 and cloudy. Daytime high of 63 with variable cloudiness. As the plowed snow banks recede, you find lots of items. A lot of peeled off kick wax containers, a few gloves and tissues etc. So far I have only found 5 cents. Usually my total for the spring is 2 to 3 dollars worth of change. With about 1/2 the footprint now of a couple of weeks ago, I hope to get up to the 1 dollar value as the rest of the plowed snows get recycled. Friday 66 periods of rain and mild. Saturday 68 and mostly cloudy. Sunday 62 rather cloudy with a few showers.
04/17/19 6:56AM 25 degrees and clear skies. Noon forecast of 54 and mostly sunny. Daytime of 59 and mostly sunny. I had to scrape the trucks windows this morning. Thursday 62 with variable cloudiness. Friday 66 with periods of rain. Saturday 66 mostly cloudy with showers. Still a little snow visable along the back edge of the open field. Plowed snow at the edge of the parking lot will be around for awhile. Two trees cut up on secondary trails yesterday. Trails are still too wet to try to get very much work done.
04/16/19 5:30AM Welcome to winter 2.0. Somewhere the message that the ski season is over and 70 degree temperature is welcome got miss filed. 31 degrees and mostly clear. Noon forecast of 44 and mostly sunny. Daytime 48 partly sunny and windy. We did have some fairly heavy snow yesterday off and on in the air. Ground started to whiten up some, but nothing accumulated as the ground temperature was a bit to warm. Wednesday 58 mostly sunny and not as cool. Thursday 62 with variable cloudiness. Friday 68 with a passing shower or two. Whatever this is - a blog or ski condition report etc. will be a couple of hours late tomorrow. I will be away from a computer in the morning.
I have placed a summary of the March 2 meeting on the ski center for sale page. Also included is a questionaire that if you have time I would love to hear where you would like to see the ski center go. Questionaires will be available at the ski center. If you prefer to print it out and mail that is also very helpfull. Thanks for your help
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..
40k of groomed ski trails for both classic and skate techniques. 84 inch Yellowstone track system groomer that get 2 passes on the entire trail system for a skate lane and set tracks.
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.
OPEN HOURS SKI SEASON - 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM
APPOINTMENTS AT OFF HOURS ARE NOT A PROBLEM, BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO CALL FIRST TO MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE AROUND.
WE HAVE TWO GROOMERS, OUR NEW ONE THIS YEAR IS A POLARIS EPS 1000. TRACKED MACHINE GENERATING 80+ HORSE POWER. IMPLEMENTS INCLUDE ROLLER, DISC DRAG, YORK RAKE AND TWO YELLOWSTONE 84 INCH GINZU GROOMERS.
We are now grooming with two Polaris Rangers. Heated cab means more now than it used to. Picture to the left is the Red Camp across from the main lodge that we rent.
One of the main advantages we have in Osceola Is a wealth of fresh soft snow. The way we groom 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).
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 Ginzu groomer is 330 pounds. www.yellowstonetrack.com
