As of mid-day on Feb 22, there were 7 to 8 inches of very light new snow in the lower Ward Trail area, resting on a fairly widespread “sun crust.” At least 10 people were skiing Ward and Staircase Trails this morning. The Ward Trail route (packed last Sunday) is still easy to find under the light new snow, but more snow is expected in the next 36 hours.
