Good, Good Skiing to be Had Today

Snow flee ski.

We had the best ski around the Lower Blue Jay. The tracks were great we skied right up the hills. The downhill was slow, but fun. And the kids brought home snow fleas, which are now being housed in my refrigerator.

And the Skiing is Fine

Good tracks at the beginning of the Blue Jay.

Open, 26º at 6:30am, forecast high 40º. 1/2 inch of new snow.

In the last week it snowed about 2 feet. All trails are open and have a double track thanks to our new grooming rig.

That snow has been groomed to perfection by Ian. (His birthday is today, somebody get him an egg sandwich from Bromley Market, and everybody else give him a hug.) ...

Perfect Day For a Ski, Perfect Ski For a Day

Nice tracks.

Open, 3º at 6:30am, forecast high 20º. Today the skiing is perfect.

The skiing is absolutely fabulous. The tracks are in and set up. The sky this morning is clear and going to start out blue. The wax is also blue. Another fabulous, wonderful day. 

The weather is going to warm up for the weekend. The skiing will still be good. The weather prediction is snow overnight, rain/snow Saturday. Occasional rain/mix Sunday. The temperatures both days in the high 30ºs. ...

Perfect Tracks Cause Stress!

I was the first to get to ski up the Blue Jay. I did not want to be the first to herringbone and wreck the tracks.  And anyone who has skied up the hill behind the barn know it gets pretty darn steep. It was a super hard arm work out.

Ian gets a ski, after grooming and before heading out to take the Burr and Burton ski team to a race. He is a very happy camper with the way the new groomer is working, the tracks are great and the corduroy is pretty. A very happy camper!!!!  ...

Careful What You Wish For (edited 8:36am)

Lots of Snow

Open, 14º at 8:30am, with an expected high of 18º. And the skiing is fine.

8.5 inches of snow. Not as much snow as forecast, but it is plenty.  Ian was in the snow cat grooming yesterday from 10:00am until 9:00pm last night. He was back out there this morning before 5am. I agree that seems a little crazy, but the snow hardens up overnight and settles, maybe today is easier grooming.   ...

Red Sky in Morning…..

Skiing on the Chickadee and chatting with a friend.

Open, 9º at 7am. Forecast high 21º.

The sunrise was quite a show. 6:25am, a nice red/purple glow. Fading away. Recheck at 6:50, a orangish/red, rising into pink. I am so grateful to witness the sunrises. And I don’t like to get out of bed. I really am only up to get down and start the fire for the 7:30am yoga class. So thank you early yogis. I see sunrises I would otherwise miss. ...
