After 2-3 inches of new snow, the Cutler Trails are groomed and ready for a weekend of fun with your canine buddies. With clear skies, the skiing should be beautiful, especially early morning and late night when the temperatures are below 32 degrees.

There's still plenty of snow on the mountain, but we could use more of it! We've not done any additional grooming this week as Mother Nature has been stingy with the snow. Grooming crews spent time at Cutler on Sunday, setting stakes around Mutt Meadow, Yogi's Run and Toko's Tail Wag. The snow is hard packed, [...]
