Open, 25º at 7am. Forecast high 34º.
Skiing today will be good. A little new snow in the tracks to slow it down and away we go. Yesterday Ian groomed, the Turkey, Woodcock, Snow Goose, Grouse Goshawk and Lower Blue Jay. With the new snow this morning in the tracks skiing is better if he leaves it alone.
Ian and Chuck boiled in the sugar house again yesterday. We are up to 14 gallons of syrup, the most we have made on this size evaporator in a year was 60 gallons. And yesterday’s syrup seemed particularly tasty. Don’t know how or why that happens, but we’ll take it. A little surprise sap run on Saturday, Ian gathered and they boiled it down on Sunday. Ask Ian about the 3/16ths tubing lines we are running, it is an interesting conversation. I am inclined to believe sugar makers are the mothers of invention.
