​SNOW CONDITIONS:
Latest Update:  1/20/22. 8:30am. 

25km open today, with nice midwinter conditions.   We’ve been finally able to set tracks on our natural snow trails, with Liberty Meadow, Lower Saddle, Ridge Rd, Bear Claw, Zig Zag, Potato Farmer, Sap Run, Eli’s Escape, and part of Upper Saddle all groomed with the pistenbully with tracks set.   We’ve also been out with our ATV groomer on many of our outer trails, and have groomed out Hinesburg Hill loop, Bishop, Butternut, Ichabod’s, and Trois Montagnes.  The skiing is quite nice today 9/10 or 10/10 on most our trails.

Heads up! We’ve got the St. Mikes EISA Carnival Friday 10am- 1pm (may be delayed due to cold temps). And more racing St. Mikes EISA Carnival Saturday 9am- 1pm.   Race course will be closed to the public during the races, but other trails are open to the public.  Please check the race course map on the porch at Sleepy Hollow to know where the race course goes.  Spectators welcome to watch some high powered elite racing come through Sleepy Hollow.  Rumor is there is a future Olympian skiing here this weekend!

Wednesday Night World’s results are up from this week, plus still open for on your own racing ’til next Tuesday.  Entries and results at this link.  Sign up for the race online (new for this year) and find out more details at this link:  More details HERE.

Eli’s 10-point Rock Skiing Scale:

  • 10: Should have used my race skis.

  • 9: Very nice skiing, but will see the occasional rock or icy patch.

  • 8: Very good skiing. There may be some bumps, rocks, ice or grassy spots to watch out for, especially on corners.

  • 7: Not too shabby. You might think it’s an 8, but then you snag a rock and fall on your face. It’s a 7.

  • 6: You’re out there thinking is this a 5 or a 6? Then the sun comes out. It’s a 6.

  • 5: Halfway decent skiing…. Still some rocks, grass, ice, or wet spots, but well worth the effort to get out the door.

  • 4: Meh.

  • 3: Fairly bad skiing. May be occasional patches of good skiing, but in general quite rocky, grassy, wet or icy.

  • 2: Pretty bad skiing… Not for beginners, use your most banged up rock skis…. Better than running, barely.

  • 1. I should have gone running
