Snow has been very uneven with some trails in Syracuse/Watertown/Tug Hill area open for skiing.Tooboats
Poor2014-03-2916Cloudy, 42 deg. Today was the last of the Saturday morning Pancake Breakfasts. Accompanying the pancakes were sausage, orange juice, coffee but no snow.

Fair2014-01-02The Lake Effect snow band finally shifted far enough south to give us some snow during the day on Friday. The was 2-3 inches on the open parts of the trail. Pine Meadow and Three Meadows trails were best. Trails with extensive tree cover did not get much snow. Because the trails are so smooth and carefully groomed here, you only need a little snow to ski. We received a dusting overnight, but I do not expect to improve things much. Driving up to the Tug Hill today. Will report back later.Tooboats
