SKI REPORTS LEFT ON FROM LAST YEAR. NEW REPORTS START SOON!
03/14/16 6:11AM We are closed for skiing for this season. Even if we get new snow this year, its over. I can be around if you need ski or disc golf equipment. It is best to call ahead (315-599-7377)as I will be in and out working on trails and enjoying some time off before we open for disc golf on May 15th. Thanks again for helping us have the greatest job? in the world.
03/13/16 7:49AM or 6:49AM You choose. Noon forecast of sunny and 44 with a daytime high of 51. Last day open for a ski/walk this winter season. 5k open on Malloy. Not very good skiing, but probably better than where you are. Thanks for those who have skied at our facility this season. Much shorter in duration than normal, but still lots of fun. If you need to ski today there will be no charge. Best to bring older skis as we are not renting skis any more for this year. Disc Golf season May 15th through Otober 31. Two 18 hole courses plus 6 bonus hole for a total of 42. Courses will be open 7 days a week and pro shop on weekends.
03/12/16 6:31AM 25 degrees and clear. Noon forecast of 48 and partly sunny with a daytime high of 53. Sunday's high around 50. Last weekend of skiing. I skied to Malloy yesterday and there was was 2-3 inches of granular / icy conditions. We lost snow yesterday even with the mid 30 temperatures. Gliders / deer run has some skiable sections, but also more bare spots than yesterday. My Snocountry report has dropped the trails open down to 5k. See 03/11/16 below for more detail. For the majority of skiers it is best to wait until next year. For those that want one last ski - bring older skis if you have them as we will not be renting skis this weekend. There will be no charge for skiing this weekend. Expect to take skis on and off.
If you are done for the season, I want to thank you for skiing here this year. A late start and early end compared to historical norms. Fairly good conditions from Jan 1 through Febuary gave us more flexibility than a lot of ski centers have. New Ginzu groomer arrived yesterday. New major weather station being built on site this summer. Six new bonus holes between the two eighteen hole disc golf courses this summer. All and all a fair season. Disc golf opens May 15th.
NOTE: Due to daily grooming, the snow on our ski trails will usually be deeper than what is in the webcam view as this spot is in the open with no packing.
We have a new groomer. Same Alpina Sherpa as before but this is a 2013 with a 1.6L Ford engine rather than a 2009 with a 1.4L Peaugot engine. Basically the same machine but the dry weight is now 1300 pounds vs. 1180 pounds with the previous setup. 6 new models of skis including Fischer Carbonlite's and Fischer superlites. Another nice addition is the Rossignol Evo Tour. 3 new models of Sporten skis

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.

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.
