GENERAL COMMENTS: Click on the "Trails Update" for further details. You will find some great conditions in most areas, but use caution as unmarked hazards may exist. You'll find the best skiing in the Galena area, on the upper Harriman, and at Prairie Cr. A portion of Billy's is open but we need more coverage to open it all. We need more snow for the North Fork to open as well. Need to buy your season pass? Get online now at bcrd.org.
