JacksonXC 10:00 am

Thursday, February 2, 2017

I will be off in VT this Thursday to ski. I have spoken to a few ThursdaySkiers who plan to ski this Thursday, so I am posting a ThursdaySki to keep the tradition going!!

Looks like excellent ski weather for the next few days. Snow coming in tonight!!

Meet at the JacksonXC lodge, ready to ski at 10:00 am. Choose a good adventure depending on the grooming report of the morning.

I look forward to seeing you the following week!  I hope to be able to set that Thursday for a ski at Bretton Woods!!

Bear Notch Epic, 10:00 am

Thursday, January 26, 2017

WOW, I just came in from an amazing day of skiing at Bear Notch!

It was excellent, miraculous actually, considering yesterday's weather forecast and the nor'easter that we had. We had more snow than expected, and anything else that came down else solid and could bounce. All perfect for adding to the good base already out there.

Let's meet at Bear Notch Ski Touring, in the warming barn where the soup and bread are served. Park in the back behind the barn. Be there ready to ski at 10:00 am. I have a 2-fer coupon and I have some freebies that I will use for your tickets. We can do pretty much all of their trails, the main event being the loop that goes across Bear Notch Road to the Pine Forest trails and return via Bartlett Village and the Saco River Trails.

Should be really nice!

JacksonXC at 11:00 am

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

The skiing today in the snow was like gliding over silk!  Tomorrow's forecast look OK, warmer than today, above freezing with a small possibility of rain mid morning.

Let's avoid that possible rain and meet a bit later than usual, at Jackson Ski Touring at 11:00 am, in the lodge, ready to ski. The skies may clear in the early afternoon. Bring a lunch or snack to eat on the trail.

We will check what is groomed and make a decision on what to ski. Even the ungroomed is excellent, so we may not be limited by grooming. My first preference is to do the Ellis River Trail one way from the Rocky Branch parking lot if possible.

See you there!

The forecast just does not look good for a ThursdaySki this week.  Let's hope the snow pack is thick enough to endure the forecasted rain/sleet event.

See you next week!!

ThursdaySki at JacksonXC 10:00 am

Thursday, January 5, 2017

Happy New Year!

Jackson seems to be doing very well with the snow conditions this week. Let's meet at the lodge, ready to ski at 10:00 am. We will pick the best trails of the day. Prospect Farm may be freshly groomed, or we can do a one way down the Ellis from Rocky Branch if the Kellogg is groomed.

See you Thursday!
