One more question.  Looking at the maps, it looks like Egypt Road Trails has a warming hut but Skyfields on Jackson does not.  Is this the case?  Are warming huts always open?
Hoping for some more lake effect snow in the next 2 weeks!
Thanks again,

There is also a warming hut at Jackson Hill, a very nice one, and it is shown on the trail map. Go to the main parking lot. Follow the Hillside Trail a short distance, past the gray container structure, to a marked trail to the left, which takes you to the warming hut. It’s about a 5 minute walk or 3 minute ski at most. 

Both of our warming huts (Egypt Road and Jackson Hill) are open at all daylight hours during the winter months, and are heated by wood stoves. Firewood and kindling are supplied, but if you are the first user of the day, you may have to light  the fire,  PLEASE be very careful not to overheat the stove, and do not leave it unattended unless the damper is at least half closed.
