Blue Sky and Great Spring Skiing

Open, 28º at 7:45 am and Sunny!!! Forecast high 45º and Sunny! The trails are still covered with plenty of snow. The snow re-froze last night and will now soften and make the skiing really good and fun. Blue sky and sun shine, a great day to be out.

Ian re-groomed the Turkey, Woodcock and Snow Goose last night. He was headed up the Grouse/Goshawk, the snow was still too wet and heavy and the Ranger would not pull the ginzu up the Grouse hill. Thank goodness we insisted on buying the winch on the Ranger. Ian said it was the 4th time he has winched the rig up a hill this winter. Glad to know it works.  ...

Toe To Snow Is Good

Open, 36º at 7am, a light drizzle. 45º is the forecast high, and cloudy. Ian has been grooming forever. He is 3 here and ready to drive the snow machine.  The ground driven tiller behind this machine never did work.

It might be rainy, but the snow is corn snow and good soft skiing. It is suppose to get cold overnight tonight and will freeze and harden back up. The sunshine tomorrow and warm temperatures will make Saturday a great day to ski! We have an end date of April 8th. We are going to hope make it that many more days. ...

Peace, Yoga for the Week of March 31st thru April 7th.

A little more Peace!!!

Peace Is This Moment Without Judgment by Dorthy Hunt

Do you think peace requires an end to war? Or tigers eating only vegetables? Does peace require an absence from you boss, your spouse, yourself?….Do you think peace will come some other place than here? In some other heart than yours?

Peace is this moment without judgment. That is all. This moment in the Heart-space where everything that is is welcome. Peace is this moment without thinking that it should be some other way, that you should feel some other thing, that you life should unfold according to your plans. ...

Great Skiing, Great Syrup

Open, 33º at 7:30am, cloudy. Forecast high 44º and cloudy, chance of some rain later in the day.

Skiing is still good spring skiing. We had about 10 skiers yesterday. The snow is nice corn snow and there is still a lot of it. Since it is almost the end of March, we know skiing is almost done. Can you get out to ski again?  ...

Skiing is Still Good

Open, 31º, and cloudy. Forecast 43º and generally  cloudy.

I admit I have become a little spoiled from all the sunshine and blue sky. Despite the clouds, the skiing today will be good. We still have lots of snow still left. We have been able to have all the trails open. If the loggers aren’t making syrup and they show up we may have to close Chickadee at the last minute.  ...

Great Day For a Great Spring Ski

I love smiling skiers!

Open, 17º at 7am, and sunny. Forecast, 41º, partly sunny.

Today looks like the best weather day of the rest of this week. The forecast has not been real accurate. So, we’ll see.

Spring skiing, hard and fast in the morning and late afternoon. Slower and softer in the middle part of the day. Depending on temperature and sun, and today both temperature and sun will make good skiing. ...

A Perfect Spring Ski Day

The busiest hill around.

Open, 21º at 7:45am, and a sunny blue beautiful sky.  Forecast high, 38º, and clear.

The skiing is wonderful, spring skiing. The snow will soften and warm up, say, after 11am. Spring skiing is variable, it can be soft and wet in places, and dry and powdery other places. Over all a great time! We are not grooming today. Ian is working on the new Ranger, oil change, etc. and then he is skiing. Woo-hoo! ...
