Good2016-01-1228 deg snowing 6-8 inches of powder. We have had major snow in the region from north of Watertown to Cortland. We got to Boonville while it was snowing and skied Into the Woods breaking trail all the way. Some icy spots under the snow.Tooboats
Excellent2015-01-09OK. Here goes Tooboats' picks of the weekend. The northern areas of the Tug Hill received more than 2 feet of snow in the last three days. It subsided today with all areas reporting excellent conditions. But another monster is brewing on the lake with advisories for Watertown and Pulaski calling for 35 mph gusts and zero visibility. Stay south on Saturday. The Boonville trails will be fantastic. Go to Osceola on Sunday and if they manage to groom the trails, call in sick on Monday and go up to the Winona State Forest in Pulaski.Tooboats
Excellent2015-01-08Recent lake effect event dropped less snow in Boonville than further north. But conditions are quite good with about 5-10 inches. Trails in the Black River Environmental system are all groomed. Jackson Hill is a few hundred feet higher than Egypt Road and the Canal trails in town and usually has better conditions. Don't forget the two warming huts on Egypt Road and Jackson Hill. My wife bought me a picnic backpack for our wine and cheese parties there. It used to be hard to carry our picknick basket and ski at the same time! Tooboats
Excellent2014-03-0120Cloudy, 28 Deg. Towards the eastern end of the Tug Hill and was not getting the usual snow. Finally received sufficient snow for excellent conditions. This is part of the Black River Environmental Improvement Association system in Boonville, NY with a total of 80 km of trails. We skied and had a snack in the palatial warming hut near the parking lot. Tooboats Jake

I believe that the Jackson Hill trails are the best. 6-8 inches new snow. more to come Tue and Wed. Nice warming hut with woodstove and tables inside.Tooboats
Good2014-01-02As the lake effect snow band moved south last night and today, Boonville received 5" of snow. The Black River trails are open and will be rolled tomorrow AM. Still snowing in the area. Saturday will be a good day with more snow forecast Sat night. Sunday will be in the 40's, then cold and snow all week. This counts for Egypt RD and Canal trails as well.Tooboats
