[2/18]: Antelope4455 states “Grooming is almost complete at Minnewaska.  The carriage roads in the Lake Minnewaska area are open to skiing only today.  The groomers were out with barrels and have rolled and matted the following trails: Lake Minnewaska (Red) 3.2 km, Upper Awosting (Green) 5.0 km Castle Point (Blue) 7.4 km, Hamilton Point (Yellow “H”) 4.7 km, Millbrook Mountain (Yellow) 4.0 km. No track was set because the base is too thin.  Base depths range from 1 – 2+ inches, with the best coverage on Millbrook and Hamilton.  Even though it’s thin in spots, the only bare spot is Battlement’s Terrace stretch on Castle Point.  I’d rate overall conditions as fair, with some good stretches out there.”
