Today's Report from the Blue Hills Trails - Out like a lion!

8" very dense snowfall Saturday morning. This sits on trails that mostly had a very good base, firm trails that were providing very good freeze/thaw crust skiing before this new snow.

Today's Report from the Sisters Farm Trails - No current report, but we're pretty sure you can still ski.
