Another Sunday Morning!

27º at 7:00am.
Forecast high 34º.

The 11km that are open are great. Ian is out in the snow cat grinding up the snow up and putting a track in. Woo-hoo. Ski today. Tuesday’s forecast is for rain, if the forecast is correct, we will be closed. And then we will have to reassess after the snow refreezes.

We do have a little kid ski race here this morning. You can come whenever you want, if you come early, park among the parents, get your skis on, cheer on a kid, and get out on the Woodcock/Snow Goose and you will see the one or two people you usually see. On the Lower Blue Jay you will also not see many skiers. You may also wait until after 12ish, and they will be gone. ...

A warmer day, a beautiful ski!

30º at 7:00am.

Forecast high 38º.

The 11km that are open are great. The 6+ inches of new snow Tues. night/Wednesday was fabulous, but not enough on top of the other hard snow to get the longer, harder, bumpier trails open.

We went to bed last night the temperature was 20º and it went up over night to 30º. The wind is blowing. And the temperatures will go up a little more. This is the warmest weekend of skiing we have had this season. It will be hard to leave off the warm clothes. ...

Snowy Friday

A dusting of new snow overnight. The skiing is really, really good. A shot of the down track above.
In case you missed it I posted a video on Facebook, here is the link, skiing down the “down track”.

The 10km that are open are great. The 6+ inches of new snow was fabulous, but not enough on top of the other hard snow to get the longer, harder, bumpier trails open. If the forecast is correct and next Tuesday we get 3-5 inches of snow at 31º that will help us get the Upper and Middle Blue Jay going again. The Chickadee??? we keep trying to talk to the loggers but have had no luck. ...

A Downhill Run

We like this and thought you might too! I’m so hi-tech. I was just holding my phone in my hand as I skied down the hill! This is a very low resolution version. Check out the original on our Skiing Gallery on SmugMug where you’ll find lots more Wild Wings photos.

January 2, 2018

The skiing is pretty darn nice. The high about 11º today. And a dusting of snow. Cold snow is sparkly, light and topping off everything. The moon was setting, the sunrise a little pink/orange. And the stars……… I get up and go down to start the fires in the barn around 6am. And the colder it is the harder it gets to get dressed and get out. But the show the sky puts on makes it all worth it. ...
