Grooming the trails at Big Rock

MARS HILL, Me. (WAGM)- Ski areas are planning on opening for the season this weekend. Lonesome Pine in Fort Kent, Mt Farlagne in Edmundston and Big Rock in Mars Hill all could be very busy this weekend as skiers hit the slopes. I was able to spend some time riding the Big Rock Groomer as they prepared the trails.

Neal Grass has been grooming the trails at Big Rock for over 20 years. He and his crew have been busy preparing the trails for an early Christmas present as they are opening a week earlier than schedule. That thanks to two snowstorms last week

Thaw closes slopes at Bigrock

Bigrock Mountain in Mars Hill is waiting out another January thaw, this one heavy in sleet, and closing its slopes Thursday.

“We made a decision today to close and let this go another day,” said Bigrock manager Travis Kearney as he and trail groomer Neil Grass were inspecting the mountain’s Comet Trail from the snowcat groomer Thursday morning.

“Neil and I both decided that we think it will be safer,” Kearney said in a Facebook video post. “The temperatures will cool down and the snow conditions will be better.” Temperatures for Friday through Sunday were expected to range between overnight lows in the teens and high single digits and daytime highs in the mid-20s.
