2/10/2022: At 7:00 AM it is beginning to snow and radar shows snowfall in the area for the next couple hours. Forecast shows temps hovering around freezing. The tracks are holding up well. Use caution on the downhills.

2/9/2022: We received an inch of fresh snow yesterday. The tracks are holding up well. Today it will be below freezing in the morning (faster harder conditions) and will climb above freezing in the afternoon (slower softer conditions). There is good snow coverage everywhere. In some areas where the tracks are hit by the sun they may be glazed. Use caution on the downhills in the morning. Check the weather report if traveling a distance. Possibility of drizzle or light rain in the afternoon.

2/4/2022: We got about 7" of new snow on top of what we already had and we have a good solid base. John groomed and set track on all trails. If you thought the skiing was good last weekend, it will be equally as good if not better this weekend. Don't miss one of the best classical ski experiences around.

2/4/2022: (PM) The groomer just called from Oil Creek. He said it is going to be very good. He’s just getting started so if you head out there watch out for him on the trails. Also, parking lot is being plowed! The area got about 8 inches of snow after a day of light rain. Trail conditions will be variable.
(AM) As predicted we got rain, sleet, mix, and finally snow last night and snowing today.
(AM) John will be heading out this morning to groom. Watch for an accurate report later this evening.

1/25/2022: John will be out at Oil Creek grooming this morning after the 3-4 more inches of snow we got yesterday and to cleanonditi up where the gas well tenders went through. The base is solid so we should be set up for some very nice skiing all week and into the weekend.

1/24/2022: With the addition of 4" of new snow over solid base the skiing was near perfect yesterday. More snow is expected later today so it looks like good skiing all week. John will groom again at some point and we'll let you know when. Enjoy some great skiing and please use the mailbox for your trail fee. Happy Trails!

1/23/2022: The forecast is calling for 2 to 4 inches of snow throughout the day which should improve the good conditions we already have. We recommend caution on the downhills until we get snow on top. Skiers had fun yesterday and the ski swap was a hit. Most of the equipment was gone by noon. Thanks for all the donations to the Friends of Oil Creek and the PA Biathlon Club. There are just a couple pairs of adult skis, misc. poles and parts left. If you have any equipment you wish to donate to the cause, today is the last day for the swap.

1/22/22: Good sub zero morning to you! Hey, it's going to get to 20 degrees this afternoon. Beautiful day to ski. All trails have been groomed and track set on Thursday. We haven't received any new snow so the hills are a bit icy. We recommend caution if skiing on the downhills. And don't forget we are having a ski swap this weekend too. Lot's of used equipment that must go to a good home. Donations accepted from the equipment for the Friends of Oil Creek and the PA Biathlon Club.

1/20/2022: John is heading to the park this morning to groom and set things up nice for the weekend. Cold temperatures are supposed to remain so the skiing should be good. Also, in case you didn't see it on Facebook we are having a Ski Swap on Saturday and Sunday at the Ski Hut from 10:00 to 4:00. We were given a bunch of used XC equipment, skis, poles, and boots in various sizes. We also have some parts like bindings and baskets. All must go! Donations will be accepted for the equipment and the proceeds will go to the Friends of Oil Creek and the PA Biathlon Club. Oil Creek is the place to be! Looking forward to seeing you!

1/18/2022: The conditions should be great today at Oil Creek. There is a base of about 10" with light snow on top. All trails are groomed and track set. The scenery is beautiful and the temperatures will be mild. The roads should be better today too so come on out and enjoy it while you can. Please use the mailbox for your trail fee when the ticket booth isn't open. Also, filling out an envelope helps us with demographics and numbers. Thanks!

1/17/2022: John just called from Oil Creek. There is 10-11 inches of snow and the parking lot is plowed. He is grooming now starting with green, blue, and some white trails, followed later by the red and rest of the white. Skiing should be great this afternoon. Reminder, classical skiing only. Peg will be at the ticket booth by 1:00 for trail passes or use the mailbox before then. Still only $5 for day and $40 for season. Let the skiing begin!
