Morefield Snow Depth: 8", 4" roller packed depth
Chapin Snow Depth: 0"

Morefield Campground loops have been roller packed with classic track set on 1/6/2017. Track is still present at this time, however recent rain and warm temperatures have made for icy conditions in the morning and slush in the afternoon.

Chapin and Wetherill area trails are not currently skiiable.

Current forecasts call for significant snow this weekend, with moisture moving into the area Thursday night and continuing through Tuesday. If the snow comes in as forecasted the Morefield campground loops will be roller packed and the Wetherill and Cliff Palace roads will be reopened to skiing and snowshoeing.
