About 10k+ open for skiing. 25k open for snowshoeing and fat biking.
Loose frozen granular snow. The picture above is from this morning.
Skiing will be faster in the morning, slowing down a bit as things warm up. Temperatures are expected to hover around freezing today. Hopefully it won't get so warm we keep losing snow. Experienced skiers like the glide they get with granular snow. Skate skies should bet some sweet slide.
Malcolm is out grooming this morning, setting tracks and softening things up where he can. We lost a fair amount of snow last night with the unseasonably warm weather. He's going to groom the inner trails and a run out Pines, but he's not sure if he'll go out to the fields at Riverside farm today. It's going to be about 10k of available skiing - more if he can add to it. He's going to keep the shop updated and we'll add to this report if he adds more open terrain.
It is 22 degrees at 9am with temperatures warming up to the high 30's today. It's going to get squishy later in the afternoon.
Malcolm went out early to work his magic. He reposts a nice fine loose frozen granular snow. Skiing is always a little faster with granular snow which experienced skiers embrace. The glide is great when the conditions are like this. Skate skiing will be good today too, with more of that sweet slide underfoot.
The picture is from this morning.
We are open at 9am with nice granular powder mix snow. 18km open for skiing, 26km open for snowshoeing.
Malcolm has groomed out to the end of Loki's and is heading out to see if he can open any trails up on the Beaver Pond side. The rain we got on Thursday has opened up all the wet spots again so we're back to square one again. I will update if he is able to get any more trails open today.
9:30 am We are open! A fussy groomer is no match for the determined team of Malcolm and Bob.
We're back in business. Malcolm has groomed all the inner trails flat, and is now out setting tracks. He'll just keep at it until he's done. The picture above is looking pretty good. Skate skiing will be pretty good today.
8am Groomer issues have caused us some delay in opening the trails. The inner trails are groomed flat so far, but until Malcolm can figure out why the track setter isn't working he can't set tracks. I'll update as soon as he has it sorted out.
It looks like we will be skiing on loose granular snow, maybe even with tracks set. Fingers crossed.
Please check back for an update. I'll post as soon as I know more.
We are closed today. We got some mixed precipitation on top of about 3" of new snow. It's warm and a little wet this morning. We will let the trails dry out today and groom tomorrow morning. The snow we were expecting today has fizzled, so we need to let this all settle before we touch it.
