Good Skiing Today!


Hooray for a great ski day.

Open,  26º at 7am. Forecast high 35º. New snow, 7.5 inches.

Ian is out grooming. And the skiing will be really good. The snow fell pretty darn wet, but dried out nicely overnight. Ian is grooming the Turkey, Woodcock, Snow Goose, Grouse, Goshawk and Lower Blue Jay first. Then will get  to the Upper and Middle Blue Jay. The Chickadee is just too darn wet. (Those wet spots are  part of our summer trail work plan!) AND remember your Maxiglide. (We do have some here for sale). It is needed on waxless skis with new snow around freezing. 

Loving the new rig.

We continued boiling yesterday. We have now made 10.5 gallons of syrup. Get yours while it is still hot. We have been only filling glass jars (I refuse to put 200º syrup into plastic). Next time we boil we will put some syrup into cans. We have around 300 taps up and are now out of sap. So a little warm weather and we will be boiling again.

    It was indeed a great place to be in the fresh snow. I want to repeat an observation my friend made. She’s pretty new to cross country skiing and noticed while skiing at Wild Wings, “Cross country skiers are nice.” I have to agree and thank you, Helena for your encouragement on the down hills. It worked!
