Better Than Nothing/ Time For A Snow Dance

hard fast skiing

OPEN

The skiing is fast. Not for the faint of heart, not for beginners. If you are new to skiing, it is a good time to try snowshoeing.

6º at 7:00am.

Forecast high, 15º. Going to be cold. For info on dressing for the cold.

This is double pole skiing and good for klister. Fast, no tracks.

I am going to say this a different way. Beginner trails will ski at an intermediate level. Intermediate trails at an expert level. If you fall it will hurt. ...

A Little Like Eeyore

We are CLOSED today. 🙁

30º at 7:00am.
Forecast high 42º.

Today is quite gloomy. It is icing and freezing and yucky! There is still snow on the ground, and a lot of rain coming. If we don’t loose too much snow, the next step, let the snow refreeze and grind up what’s left. Ian said on Sunday when he groomed the snow was getting thin, and he might not be able to till it again. All we can do is wait and reassess. ...

Ski Today!!!


28º at 7:00am.
Forecast high 34º.

The 11km that are open are really ok. Ian groomed yesterday.
We had 80 plus ski racers. The kids in the picture above had to ski a shortened Turkey. I was told after the race, the Turkey is really long when you are trying to ski your fastest.
Ski today. Tuesday’s forecast is for rain, if the forecast is correct, we will be closed. And then we will have to reassess after the snow refreezes. ...

Another Sunday Morning!

The Piston Bully

The Piston Bully


27º at 7:00am.
Forecast high 34º.

The 11km that are open are great. Ian is out in the snow cat grinding up the snow up and putting a track in. Woo-hoo. Ski today. Tuesday’s forecast is for rain, if the forecast is correct, we will be closed. And then we will have to reassess after the snow refreezes.

We do have a little kid ski race here this morning. You can come whenever you want, if you come early, park among the parents, get your skis on, cheer on a kid, and get out on the Woodcock/Snow Goose and you will see the one or two people you usually see. On the Lower Blue Jay you will also not see many skiers. You may also wait until after 12ish, and they will be gone. ...

A warmer day, a beautiful ski!

30º at 7:00am.

Forecast high 38º.

The 11km that are open are great. The 6+ inches of new snow Tues. night/Wednesday was fabulous, but not enough on top of the other hard snow to get the longer, harder, bumpier trails open.

We went to bed last night the temperature was 20º and it went up over night to 30º. The wind is blowing. And the temperatures will go up a little more. This is the warmest weekend of skiing we have had this season. It will be hard to leave off the warm clothes. ...

Snowy Friday

down track one way
down track one way

A dusting of new snow overnight. The skiing is really, really good. A shot of the down track above.
In case you missed it I posted a video on Facebook, here is the link, skiing down the “down track”.

The 10km that are open are great. The 6+ inches of new snow was fabulous, but not enough on top of the other hard snow to get the longer, harder, bumpier trails open. If the forecast is correct and next Tuesday we get 3-5 inches of snow at 31º that will help us get the Upper and Middle Blue Jay going again. The Chickadee??? we keep trying to talk to the loggers but have had no luck. ...
