Hi all:

This could be a stupid question for this time of year but given how late the snow was in coming, Im just wondering if the skin/snowshoe trail alongside Seymour is good to go right now? I heard someone saying it was dirt a few weeks back, but hopefully the last batch of snow filled it in. Ive been getting annihilated at work and havent been keep tabs on conditions and now Im out of shape and the know.

Cheers :beer:

Snowshoe track up to peak has good coverage with a couple creek ditches near the bottom. No rocks. Shitty hard pack snow with balls deep post holes possible without snowshoes.

and if you like an inch of corn snow on flat groomers, the skiing would be OK too. No rocks on the main run.

That website is helpful… except for answering my actual question ;)

pretty sure road opens at 7AM officially

if it's clear overnight expect a massive freeze up. was up last night and things were quite bulletproof outside the ski area. much more so than a couple days before.

I was up Seymour this past weekend and noticed there are a few prominent signs saying that backcountry skiers are not allowed to use the maintained runs. Did I just not notice those signs before, or are they new this year? How exactly do they expect people to get back to the parking lot, ski down the access trail and play human bowling ball? Do they have any right to fine/prosecute people who ski down the runs without a pass? Help me understand this craziness…

Way back from the old school days of NSMB…

The signs were made more prominent a couple of years ago, but the policy has always been "don't ski on the runs unless you have a lift ticket". I'm sure their tenure does give them the right to fine/prosecute if they want, but I've never heard of anyone getting hassled about it.

I have seen people skinning / snowshoeing up the runs when the hill was open, and the ski patrol is definitely not cool with that.

Also no sliding down the slopes on rubbermaid bins after the mountain is closed.
