The Jackrabbit Trail will be skiable from the VIC in Paul Smiths all the way to Cascade XC Ski Center. We can't recommend venturing any further south than that due to open water on beaver dam ponds (especially on Old Mountain Rd) and much lower snow accumulations as you head down the Cascade Pass hill. Use caution on downhills as some rocks remain uncovered.
Many of the other popular routes were skied yesterday including Fish Pond Truck Trail, Connery Pond, Heaven Hill Trails and the Whiteface Toll Road. The Marcy Dam Truck Trail is likely in great shape and other routes in the High Peaks may be passable but we haven't received any backcountry reports yet to confirm that...and remember that most of us were still wearing t-shirts outside on Saturday so be prepared to encounter early season conditions if venturing into the High Peaks.

Stay tuned for another update tonight.
