Current Ski Conditions

Updated: Saturday, February 4, 2023

Hi Folks,

It's an understatement to say that it's another really cold day out there. Our eyes and thermometers on the hill are saying that it was -22 or -27 (take your pick) early this morning. The temperatures might break into positive single digits by mid-afternoon if we're lucky. If you venture out to ski today, please go in a group to keep an eye on each other for frostbite. The temps may be icy, but the trails are not! If not today, we hope you'll come on out tomorrow when the temperatures will be much friendlier and conditions will be quite nice!

Be careful out there!

Dave Brautigam
President, CHNSA

Note: Adults (ages 13-69) can pay the $15 trail fee online! There is also wi-fi at the hut so that you can Scan-Pay-Ski by scanning the QR code at the Kiosk with your smartphone. We accept both Paypal and Venmo!

Dog Policy:

A reminder that DOGS are welcome only with canine membership. Please remember to keep your dogs under control at all times, with pooper scoopers ready for use, and take them only on the dedicated Dog Loop.

You'll receive timely conditions updates and be able to join in the online discussions with other skiers.
