2013 Loppet Still On!

Despite our recent  thaw, the January 27 Loppet  and the ski season at Murphys Point looks like they will be saved. An  assessment of the trail system today, January 14th, showed a firm skiable base of over ten centimetres of course granular snow.  The long range forecast is for 10 plus centimetres of new snow by next weekend and below freezing temperatures from now until race day.  The race committee expects the course will respond very well to grooming in preparation for the race, if we get the new snow as forecast.
