Stephens and Cascade Ponds near Blue Mountain Lake

Hard to believe I never skied Rockwood this winter. Long story short, I didn't go out probably 4 weekends due to the severe cold, negative wind chills, and also planning for a fishing trip to the Florida Keys which took up a lot of my time.

So I hope others had a fine time at Rockwood this winter.

I skied Stephens and Cascade Ponds from the Lake Durant Campground near Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondacks yesterday. It was very good, with at least 18" of consolidated snow in the woods, with a thin layer of new snow on top. Bluebird skies all day. The ponds were just perfect skiing. There is so much ice to come off still. The Sacandaga River at Wells NY is still locked up in ice, with two days to go til trout season, ha!
