The Ski-O Event is CANCELED due to the lack of snow!

Tuesday 1/22: This winter is playing games on us again: The Laurel Ridge webcam shows some snow but 2-3 inches of powder snow does not guarantee enough for grooming trails and cross country skiing. The latest weather forecast suggests up to 3 more inches of snow by Friday night. However, with no snow base to speak of, this means that the skis would go through the snow and hit the ground frequently.
