    Kolapore has received about 15 cm of new snow in the past 24 hours.  The snow gauge is at 37 cm (14").  It is hard work breaking trail today. 

    I expect that the Kolapore parking lot will be plowed by some time this afternoon.  As noted in my previous post, Grey County is no longer plowing the parking lot, so plowing is being arranged and paid for by the Kolapore Wilderness Trails Association.  Please support the Association if you want plowing and other trail maintenance to continue.

    Kolapore has received about 15 cm of powder snow in the past 24 hours.  The Kolapore snow gauge is at 25 cm.  Although there will be some wet spots and rocky areas (hey, it's Kolapore!), overall skiing should be quite good.  Rock skis are still recommended. 

    The Kolapore parking lot on Grey Road 2 was plowed Jan 5.  Plowing is now being arranged and paid for by the Kolapore Wilderness Trails Association.  If you want plowing to continue, please support the Association.

    Kolapore received about 10 cm of snow over the past 24 hours.  There is now about 15 - 20 cm of powder snow in the bush.  This compacts down to about 2 cm of snow after a few skiers have been through.  This is thin for Kolapore skiing, but some of the less rocky trails (e.g., much of County Forest) are OK if you use your rock skis.  I wouldn't go on some of the rockier trails unless you want an excuse to buy new skis.

    The Town plow is going a bit wide at Entrance W, so there is room on the shoulder for a few cars.

    Although Kolapore has received snow over the past few days, there still isn't enough to ski on.  Somewhat surprisingly, the Collingwood - Thornbury area has received more snow in the recent squalls.

    Although there is still snow cover on many parts of the Kolapore trails, it is very thin.  I would recommend deferring any skiing until we get some more snow.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the skiing in the County Forest and some adjacent trails today.  Although there is only about 5" - 6" of snow, the solid base kept us off most rocks, and there was a modest amount of powder on top.  The skiing should be OK for a day or two - until the predicted warm and wet weather arrives.  I wouldn't use the Kolapore entrance, because there have been walkers on the trail and there are a lot more rocks.

    I'm becoming more optimistic that a solution will be in place for snow plowing for 2014 - 2015 at the Kolapore parking lot in the near future.  However, this will need the support of Kolapore skiers through donations and/or memberships.

    Unfortunate that the County does not feel able to clear the lot. I am glad that my membership contribution will assist in getting the season under way- but I am hopeful that the County will step up again in recognition of the local economic contribution of this excellent trail system.

    It has been snowing steadily for hours now at Kolapore and I actually did a few laps around our property near Ravenna a couple of hours ago. (No rocks on our trails!)  It's obviously a while before the trails are skiable but all this snow has me looking forward to the coming season.

    Just wondering if anyone's been out on the trails today (Friday)?

    Thanks

    Kolapore received a few cm of snow yesterday, which will help to freshen up the trails.  Skiing should be good to excellent today, and may be not bad tomorrow before it gets warm.  After that, the forecast suggests we will be into sloppy or icy conditions.  I expect that today will be my last day of skiing this season.  It's been a great winter.
