What is Your Excuse? Good Spring Skiing.

And the groomer tests out the tracks.

Open, 31º at 7am. Forecast high of 33º.

Spring skiing conditions today. 24 k open, groomed and tracked. Ian just came in from skiing the Turkey and it is good skiing. Soft, moist snow. Beautiful in the woods.

In the last week, 22 inches of snow have fallen. The skiing has been absolutely fantastic. Yes, even yesterday. There were a lot of skiers here yesterday. Some big groups. And a few couples and singles who came skiing and skied by themselves while the others from there group stayed back at the lodge reading and watching TV.  ...

Good, Good Skiing to be Had Today

Snow flee ski.

We had the best ski around the Lower Blue Jay. The tracks were great we skied right up the hills. The downhill was slow, but fun. And the kids brought home snow fleas, which are now being housed in my refrigerator.

And the Skiing is Fine

Good tracks at the beginning of the Blue Jay.

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.) ...

Perfect Day For a Ski, Perfect Ski For a Day

Nice tracks.

Open, 3º at 6:30am, forecast high 20º. Today the skiing is perfect.

The skiing is absolutely fabulous. The tracks are in and set up. The sky this morning is clear and going to start out blue. The wax is also blue. Another fabulous, wonderful day. 

The weather is going to warm up for the weekend. The skiing will still be good. The weather prediction is snow overnight, rain/snow Saturday. Occasional rain/mix Sunday. The temperatures both days in the high 30ºs. ...

Careful What You Wish For (edited 8:36am)

Lots of Snow

Open, 14º at 8:30am, with an expected high of 18º. And the skiing is fine.

8.5 inches of snow. Not as much snow as forecast, but it is plenty.  Ian was in the snow cat grooming yesterday from 10:00am until 9:00pm last night. He was back out there this morning before 5am. I agree that seems a little crazy, but the snow hardens up overnight and settles, maybe today is easier grooming.   ...

Red Sky in Morning…..

Skiing on the Chickadee and chatting with a friend.

Open, 9º at 7am. Forecast high 21º.

The sunrise was quite a show. 6:25am, a nice red/purple glow. Fading away. Recheck at 6:50, a orangish/red, rising into pink. I am so grateful to witness the sunrises. And I don’t like to get out of bed. I really am only up to get down and start the fire for the 7:30am yoga class. So thank you early yogis. I see sunrises I would otherwise miss. ...

And the Chickadee is Open.

Skiing this good show be illegal!

Open. 10º at 6:30am. Forecast high 23º. The snow is wonderful. The skiing is fabulous. Figure out a way to get here and ski!

Ian has groomed and put a single track in the Chickadee, Loon, and Middle and Upper Blue Jay. These are open, a little bumpy and humpy and wonderfully fun, great skiing.

He groomed late last night, the Turkey, Woodcock, Snow Goose, Grouse, Goshawk, and Lower Blue Jay. Double track put in by the new rig. Like skiing on silk. (He groomed yesterday from 5am to 7:30pm.) ...
