Another Great Day For A Ski

Good Morning Star Shine, Groomers Get the Best View of the Day!!!

Open, -0 at 7:30am. My favorite  temperature. The forecast high 22º. The sun is shining and all is right with the world. The skiing is great and the Chickadee is open again today.

The forecast high yesterday was 23º. It really went to 33º in the sun. That means you need Maxiglide, sometimes, maybe. You don’t hurt anything by using it, and the Maxiglide will keep you from sticking. ...

A Ridiculously Fabulous Redundant Ski Report

Mary in the middle of skiing the every trail.

Open, 15º at 7:30am. Forecast, 23º and cloudy, with the possibility of snow showers. Really, right this minute, the sky is blue and the sun is shining. And the skiing is so, so good and wonderful!

The photo above is Mary. She and Brian decided yesterday, while the skiing is great,  was the day to ski every trail. Someone asked me the other day how long that takes. The answer is anywhere from 2 to 8 hours. Mary and Brian skied all trails, at a leisurely pace in 5 hours, including food and pit stops. What a great day to ski it all! ...

    The tracks on a March 16, 2018.

    Ian spent the last 3 days packing and dragging the small groomer. He is out today in the Ranger (new machine) pulling the ginzu (new groomer). And the ginzu puts in a really nice double track.  ...

    A Little More Snow

    Ian making a fun course. Up and the snow bank.

    Open, 25º at 7am. Forecast high 27º. Snow fall total overnight 2″. Expected snow fall, Tuesday 5-8″, Tuesday night 1-3″, Wednesday 5-8″, Wednesday night 1-3″.

    The skiing will be great! Fabulous snowy skiing. The woods will be quiet and still. Ian will pack off and on during the storm. Mid-winter snowy ski conditions. We won’t have perfects “tracks” again until, best guess, Thursday. Just too much snow to keep the tracks in. We haven’t had this problem for a while. ...
