JACKRABBIT TRAIL - No section skiable
Snow depth at Lake Colden: 20 "
Snow depth at 4,000 feet: 24-36"
Bare spots on both the hiking trail and truck trail to Marcy Dam. Snow cover but many rocks showing to Avalanche Camp. Ski route past Avalanche Camp passable, but likely very icy unless that area picked up snow on Tuesday morning as the storm moved on. Lake ice on Avalanche Lake crossable, but one must avoid inlets, outlets, and edges where melt water has entered the lake. The trail is the safer alternative.
Remote monitoring in the Huntington Forest in Newcomb indicates maybe an inch if new snow, which would have fallen on 2-3" of icy base, so Newcomb Lake Road to Camp Santanoni skiable, but not that great.
CROSS-COUNTRY SKI CENTERS (trail fee required)
Van Ho, Cascade, and Dewey are all still closed.
Paul smith's VIC: Closed today. The area has held onto a base, but the morning report only indicated a trace of new snow. We'll check tomorrow to see if they are able to groom any terrain back into skiable condition. Neighboring backcountry areas, however will likely be too icy to be much fun.
