The snow falls straight down; an unusual occurrence in these parts. Thanks to the lack of wind, the woods are peaceful and hushed. Even the sound of traffic on nearby Highway 230 is muffled. Snow comes down at a rapid rate. With 12 inches of new fluff already on the trails, it is a winter wonderland.
Such were the conditions on the Chimney Park ski trails in mid-December. There was more than 2 feet of snow with the new powder. Conditions were outstanding.
