Skiing @ Notchview (Windsor, MA)

Note: We are definitely skiing today (3/29)!  The weather has cleared and the conditions are good.

Notchview is a cool place and they usually have snow to the end of March and even  into April.

    Skiing at Notchview this am was really nice. Don't know how much longer it will hold out, but it should be good for a few days at least.

    Notchview is officially closed for the season per their ski report but it can still be skied. The lodge and services are likely not open. Prospect Mt is the next closest place open.

    Should still be good this weekend, I have my kids and may go to Notchview. Beartown yesterday was still good in the woods and it froze up overnight with another cold night tonight. Cheers. O

      Beartown was still good today, however by week"s end Notchview or Prospect would be your best bet as it will start to melt fast later this week.

    Should be nice spring snow, hopefull no rain. I wouldn't be able to come until about 12:30, maybe I'lll be able to catch up to you on the trail or in the lodge?

    • Olivier R.

      That's nice of you to ask Steve. I'm not going to be able to make it until later, so unfortunately count me out. I was at Beartown today and the snow was hard packed on the road, with patches of ice. It had softened up in the woods however. I was using my backcountry skis. Have fun tommorow, should be good still. I think Notchview should be open until next weekend.

  • Susan R.

    I went for a ski today on Nash Hill Road in Williamsburg to Conway and it was quite nice. I think tomorrow should be great.

  • Steve

    I hear it is supposed to clear up at Notchview tomorrow. I will check in the morning.

    March 28, 2014

  • Vincent

    It is a 2.5 hr drive each way for me and ski conditions are looking sketchy from reading the report. Not worth the drive for me. What a difference a week makes. See you next season or next surprise snow storm. Time to get out the kayak and dust it off for paddling season.

    March 28, 2014

    • Steve

      vincent, sorry to hear it. It's raining there today. it supposed to be clear tmr. i will check in the AM.

      March 28, 2014

  • Val

    Sorry I can't make this. Will be planting in a greenhouse so it's officially spring. Hope to ski next winter with the group.

    Hi
    I can not make the saturday ski day.
    However, I just returned from a mid week cross country ski at Viking Nordic center and Wild Wings in and around Londonderry Vt. Great skiing, plenty of snow. although, they are due for rain this weekend as we are.
    They are looking at closing in and around April 1.

    A 4-18 inch base and no bare spots as of this past Sunday, reported by fellow xc skier.

    • Steve

      Great! granville sf had over a foot of snow in some spots. notchview is further north and at a higher elevation so it should be good skiing.

      March 25, 2014

  • Gale

    Was hoping to make it this Sun. 3/23, when in Winsted for 3pm event anyway...yet with the date moved to 3/29, I've got a conflict. Hope you have a fun final ski time! Glad I got to ski Winding Trails in Feb. Encourage wearing helmets, (even a bike helmet) :-)

    March 20, 2014

  • Kathryn C.

    If there's still snow I'd love to ski with you all. I'm a beginner but looking to add cross country to my winter activity list.

    March 17, 2014

  • Brooke B.

    Hi
    Any chance that this can begin earlier? It's about 2 hr isn drive each way for me (I don't' know where your other members live) I could potentially leave by 8a and arrive by 10:30, have a few hours to ski and then comfortably drive home. Or I could simply arrive early, do some skiing and then connect with you all at 12:30?

    March 10, 2014

    • Steve

      I'm in NWCT. I rescheduled for 11:30. We look forward to skiing with you!

      March 10, 2014

    • Brooke B.

      Notchview nordic ski area seems to be closed as of yesterday, hoping to reopen today. I guess we should keep in touch about this date, weather, and the ski area.

      March 14, 2014

  • Vincent

    Really like this place. Great trails and skiers. They now rent equipment and have food.

    1 · February 14, 2014

    • Steve

      Vincent, I ended up pushing Notchview back. We still have snow in CT. Hopefully, we will be able to get more people. My apologies!

      March 10, 2014

  • Brooke B.

    would love to go, have to work. However, if there is some cool trip you are planning and I know in advance, I could schedule in another teacher once in a while.

    March 9, 2014

    • Steve

      I rescheduled Notchview for 3/30. hope u can make it.

      March 10, 2014

  • Gale

    Sounds like fun, 'night x country skiing!' Yet I'm playing the Steam Vent Coffeehouse in Winsted that night, have a great time!

    February 10, 2014

    • Gale

      Sorry, this is the Waterbury conflict, Steam Vent is 3/8...

      February 10, 2014

    • Steve
