We are Skiing!

We are skiing! Great snow has fallen on the North Cascades. Generous Jay sent James up to groom Klipchuck Campground today. The skiing is great. Get up there and enjoy it. The forecast is calling for more snow and colder temperatures. Stay tuned to the MVSTA Grooming Report for updates on the latest trail conditions.
