Open, -23º to start the morning. Around 0º by noon. At 7am the wind is not blowing.
The skiing is good. All trails are open. The Chickadee and Middle and Upper Blue Jay were great skiing yesterday. The downhill coming back is cold. Woodcock and Snow Goose are also really good skiing, you slide downhill to begin with and then slight steady uphill (so, warm up) coming back to the touring center. The wind has been blowing, watch out for snow drifts and also for sticks and branches
We had 27 skiers yesterday. All agreed that the skiing is good, and you warm up while skiing.
Everyone had on 3 or 4 layers. Hoods and neck gaiters are super important. Mittens, a good choice! A few people were happy in gloves. A few people were miserable in gloves. If you tend to have cold hands find your mittens. Dry wool socks are also important.
