Comments
Comments: Ridge Trail to Mt. Rowe - snow free and dry. Just beyond the tower (lots of digging, etc. for new tower), the entrance into the woods is marked with big makeshift plywood signs. Other than a few unavoidable patches on the upper ski slope portion, there was no snow on the Ridge Trail to Gunstock. Some patchy mud just before the ski slope portion. A patch of natural snow on the Brook Trail beyond Gunstcok that should disappear probably tomorrow - dusting up high in the shade. Overlook Trail had a few muddy areas, but nothing bad at all. Maple CC Ski Trail wasn't as smooth as the other CC trails, as it appeared to have been excavated last fall. Hopefully they'll drop some more soil on it and get some grass growing.
