Open, 26º at 6:30am, forecast high 40º. 1/2 inch of new snow.
In the last week it snowed about 2 feet. All trails are open and have a double track thanks to our new grooming rig.
That snow has been groomed to perfection by Ian. (His birthday is today, somebody get him an egg sandwich from Bromley Market, and everybody else give him a hug.)
And, really, he has groomed to perfection. During a 24 hour period, about 10am Wednesday, until about 10am Thursday, he spent 17 hours driving one of the grooming rig or another. He also recruited our friend Jonathon to drive the snow mobile for a couple hours on Wednesday.
You see, lots of fluffy new snow is beautiful. But, for skiing, unless you pack and knock the air out of it the snow is soft and fluffy, great for snow angels, not so great for skiing. So around and around he has been and the skiing is fine.
The weather forecast is for snow to mix to rain and back again. The skiing will still be good. We have enough snow to work with and the right equipment to get the skiing good again, whatever the weather.
