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.) ...

13.1″ of New Snow (edited at 10:50am)

Open 27º at 10:50am and dropping all day 5º for an overnight low. 13.1 inches of new snow! We stayed all snow!

The skiing is really good and will just get better! And for today a work in progress. Everything is going well.

Ian has a track in all the lower trails. Chuck used the snow machine to pack the Middle and Upper Blue Jay, and the Chickadee. You can ski those as is. Chuck and Ian will continue to work on the trails. I know they want a track in all the trails by the end of the day. The tracks then will set up overnight (with the colder temperatures) and the tracks tomorrow will be firm and hard, vs today, they tracks are a little softer and slower. ...

A Dusting of Snow Overnight. An inch of snow by 9am, updated post.

Open, 14º at 7am. Forecast high 32º This post updated at 9am.

Ian is out in the new rig. What a rig it is.  Look at that track! It is snowing and the skiing is great. Great day to break out the goggles or clear lens glasses. We haven’t had a snowy day like this in a while. It is fun. The forecast Chuck is quoting was up to an inch an hour this afternoon. Woohoo! ...

New machine, new groomer, new web site. Whew baby.

Open for skiing and the skiing is really good.

Jon checking out the new groomer.

You are reading the new web site. The new web site is why we went offline for a bit today.

Many of you have seen the insulation and new siding in the shop. We are staying warm and using way less wood. Busy, busy!

Snow and the New Groomer!! Life is Good


0º this morning and the weather is fine. We have new snow and the skiing is fabulous.

Yes, I know the temperature is on the colder side. But, the snow is good, the skiing is great. Get out your warm clothes, and hand warmers if you need them in your mittens. (See below for dressing warm tips.)

The new groomer is here and on it’s way to working. Arrived yesterday, via Harry who imparted words of knowledge that only come from experience, and is about ready to go. A little more wiring, a few more new holes drilled into the new side by side, fingers crossed and away we go. Just in time for more snow. Chuck in his spare time, added up the forecast snow from Weather Underground for the next week, and the total was 22 inches. Remember that is the forecast, but, if it really happens, you heard it here first. ...
