Good2014-12-1132Received about 18" snow. Maybe some light snow tomorrow. Highland Forest is a bit too far south for regular lake effect snow. Not as consistent as Tug Hill north of Syracuse.

Excellent2014-02-1132Cloudy, 12 deg, light snow. Fabius is a little too far south to get lake effect snow from Lake Ontario, but there has been considerable snow from the coastal storms of the last few weeks. Wonderful skiing today today. Trails groomed and track set. Some trails left ungroomed to enjoy backwoods skiing. Conditions reported daily on the Facebook page, Really nice lodge. Hot food on weekends.Tooboats Jake
