Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Afton State Park

Trail conditions:

Due to the recent warmer weather our base has decreased and trails are now very icy from melt & refreeze. There is a 4" base of ice on most trails so we will officially be closed for skiing. Some track remains in places but if you choose to ski be cautious of hikers and very icy conditions on hills.
