08/13/18  6:00AM  65 degrees and overcast.  Rain supposed to re-start in about 5 minutes.  0.42 inches of rain in the last 24 hours.  Noon forecast of 72 with a 51% chance of rain during the noon hour.  Daytime forecast of 76 with showers and thunderstorms.  Wednesday 82 with partial sunshine and humid.  Thursday 82 with PM showers and thunderstorms. Friday 78 with showers and thunderstorms around.  All in all yesterday was a good day.  Between rains I was able to cut a few trees so the solar panels on the weather station work better, a day closer to snow and to the utmost the Mets beat the Yankees.

 

08/13/18  6:19AM  62 degrees and overcast.  Noon forecast of 74 and cloudy.  There is a 47% chance of rain during the noon hour.  Daytime forecast of 77 with a couple of showers.  Tuesday 75 mostly cloudy with a couple of showers.  Wednesday 81 sun and clouds and an elevated humidity level.  Thursday 82 with PM showers.  Completed the "Nostalgia Tour" with grandkids.  Sylvan Beach Amusement park Friday, Syracuse Zoo and BBQ Saturday and Fort Rickey Sunday.  So much easier 30 years ago.  Loved every minute of it.

 

08/12/18  6:32AM  60 degrees and mostly clear skies.  Noon forecast of 76 and mostly cloudy.  Daytime forecast of 78 with clouds and sunshine.  Monday 78 with a coupls of showers.  Tuesday 76 mostly cloudy with a few showers.  Wednesday 79 partial sunshine and humid.  Looks to be another nice mid August day.  Just a couple of sprinkles at the Zoo yesterday before clearing.  Today looks similar with possible light sprinkles from time to time.   First time at the zoo in 7-8 years.  Syracuse is lucky to have such a nice zoo.  

 

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.  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.

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 also 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
