#SkiAcadia Update (2/19) Volunteer groomers cleaned up the Hadlock Loop today. The snow is too hard to set classic tracks, but is nice for skate skiing. Amphitheater, Aunt Betty Pond, Hadlock, Paradise Hill, and Witch Hole Pond Loops were packed on Monday, along with Eagle Lake and Parkman Connectors. The snow is thin, frozen granular with ice underneath and there are also ice floes in some sections of carriage road. Be careful and enjoy!
#SkiAcadia 2/14/19: Volunteer groomers packed the Eagle Lake Connector and Aunt Betty, Hadlock, Paradise Hill, and Witch Hole Pond loops last night and this morning. Eagle Lake Connector, Paradise Hill, and Witch Hole Pond loops have also been tracked. The snow is deep, but there is a solid layer of ice underneath it. Enjoy the skiing!
#SkiAcadia Update 2/1/19: Hadlock Loop and Amphitheater loop were groomed again yesterday afternoon, volunteer groomers packed corduroy but did not set tracks.
#SkiAcadia Update 2/1/19: Grooming crews have smoothed out the surfaces on the Aunt Betty Pond Loop, Witch Hole Pond Loop, Paradise Hill Loop and the Eagle Lake Connector. Insufficient snow to set classic track but corduroy surface suitable for both classic and skate skiing.
#SkiAcadia Update 1/31/19: After about 4 inches of overnight snow, groomers packed and set corduroy on Witch Hole Pond Loop and the Eagle Lake Connector.
#SkiAcadia Update 1/24/19: Heavy rains, temps near 50, and high winds are wreaking havoc on the trails. Conditions will be assessed once the storm passes. Forecast snow mid next week may permit some grooming providing rain hasn’t washed away all the base.
#SkiAcadia Update 1/22/19: Witch Hole Pond Loop, Paradise Hill Loop, Aunt Betty Loop and Eagle Lake Connector are all packed and dragged. The Brown Mountain Crew is out packing Amphitheater Loop and Hadlock Loop at the time of this post. The conditions are good and fast for skiing, with a few ice chunks here and there because of the original icy crust. Groomers will be out Tuesday morning to set more corduroy. Enjoy!
