Welcome to CROSSCOUNTRYSKIPA

1/29/15 A little snow on the way mainly north and west in the afternoon. A great day for skiing today. It has been a grooming fest for the continuing ski fest in Pennsylvania.  All the groomed areas are reporting fantastic trail conditions. Get out and support the venues that work so hard to provide great skiing. Winter Reports from state parks have expanded.  However, few say they have groomed trails. Hopefully, they are not keeping secrets and we truly appreciate the parks that are supporting this healthy non-polluting activity by grooming.  Use the Trail Page and Find Snow Page to plan your weekend. The blizzard went bust for eastern parts of PA but the snow cover is generally improved nearly everywhere in the state. This should be a great weekend for the back country skiers too.
