Friday 60 with intervals of clouds and sun. Saturday 67 and cloudy. Hopefully the Mets hit the low spot of thier season after losing 5 straight.

Severe thunderstorms of last evening and last night not as bad as forecast. We did receive 0.54 inch of rain and one very isolated gust of wind at 28MPH. This weather station is somewhat protected from the wind, so recorded speeds are always probably a little low. Tuesday 58 clouds and sun. Wednesday 65 partly sunny. Thursday 69 with thunderstorms in spots. After playing decent ball over a week, the Mets have fallen into a funk - losing 5 games in a row. The last 3 to the team with the worst record in the league. We did hit 82 for a high yesterday. Goooo weather!

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.

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
