Galeton/Coudersport snow conditions?

Kicking around the idea of bolting up to potter to do a little skiing, wondering if Im going to have to shovel or snow blow the driveway? Anyone have any idea of snow cover and if its packed hard or snow blowable?

I know northern Centre is 6"-10" of HARDpack you would not even be able to shovel.

Bring a metal shovel. There's close to 18-20" on the tops and winter sides where the sun can't get to it. The sunny sides are around 6" or so. Its all very hard and crusty from last weeks warmup/rain. They say the cross country skiing is very nice if thats what you're looking at. I'd imagine Denton Hill is nice too.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

With the snow coming this weekend, next week/weekend might be the last good snowmobiling time of the winter!

Friend told me this week they got the road plowed out to their camp last weekend, took 10 hours to go about one mile, near centre / clinton line.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
