                        OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM

12/12/17  6:22AM  27 degrees and snowing briskly.  4 inches overnight and 6-8 inches more expected today into tonight.  Noon forecast of 32 with clouds and snow which is also the daytime high.  Ski trails have a 2-5 inch packed powder base with the entire system open and very skiable.  Still packing and expect to have set tracks by mid week.  Wednesday 18 and flurries.  Thursday 16 and snow showers, Friday 21 and mostly cludy and snow showers.

 

12/11/17  6:20AM  23 degrees and snowing.  About 10.5 inches of snow in the last 24 hours.  Our packed base is 2-5 inches with snow in the woods 6-10 inches.  All of our trails are open with rolled / packed powder conditions.  Between today and Wednesday another 6 - 10 inches of new snow in the forecast.  Remainder of the month looks below average temperatures so I expect this snow to be here through mid-April.  Noon forecast for today is 23 and cloudy with a daytime high of 24.  Tuesday 33 with some breeze and snow.  Wednesday 17 cloudy and flurries.  Thursday 19 with a couple of snow squalls.  Saturday morning we will be hosting a high school / ESG pie classic race.  Ski season has arrived.

 

12/10/17  6:01AM  24 degrees and snowing.  About 2 inches new snow on 1-2 inch existing snow.

The last few days saw the majority of snow go just to our north.  The wind direction has us getting 8-12 inches in the next 24 hours.  I will start packing this morning.  For this weekend we will not be renting skis yet.  If you need to ski, bring an older pair of skis.  During the day today 3-6 inches additional predicted.  Tonight an additional 3-6 inch forecast.  Monday 23 with snow showers in the AM.  Tuesday 31 and breezy with 1-3 inches of new snow. 

 

07/04/17  HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA.  Even with the dsyfunction in Washington, still the greatest place in the world to call home.  Both parties get some of the credit.  Time to get to work and not worry about just getting re-elected.

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
