Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Gooseberry Falls State Park

Trail conditions:

The ski trails are still covered with snow, however we have not been able to groom given the snow conditions. Expect spring snow conditions, hard and icy in the morning hours and soft slushy in the mid-day to late afternoon. There is also a good amount of debris on the trails. This might be the last week the Gooseberry spur will be pass able. The Gooseberry River is starting to open up. This means where the spur crosses the Gooseberry River will soon be under water. As a reminder hiking, snowshoes, and fat bikes and pets are not permitted on groomed ski trails.
