Happy St. Patrick's Day! Expect icy conditions in most places, with some sun softening later this morning in open areas. Appleton fields on the west side of the tracks are likely the best; they have the most snow, they were groomed last night and will be firm and fast, great for skating. Crust cruising is also a good option for skaters. Skiing ungroomed areas may be a better option for classic skiers in places.
Appleton Grassrides (woods) is thin and rutted with bare spots. We hope to groom the fields off highland street this AM.
Pingree woods are not yet open: a second crew is headed there this morning to continue tree removal; grooming will follow if there’s adequate snow. Pingree School is also not groomed.
Bradley Palmer surely has snowmobile tracks that may be good in fields with some sun to soften them.
Thanks for another great season and your support!
