Friday: 4pm update– 4-5″ of new snow today in the base area, a little more on the trails up high and it is still snowing. We will have some good groomed skiing this weekend.
AM Report: More new snow this morning and it is still snowing lightly. We have 30km skate and classic groomed with a dusting of new snow on the groomed surface. We will re-groom everything for classic and skate throughout the day today. At 9am it is 30 degrees… and temps are forecast to hold steady through the day. For tonight the temps are 12-16… and Saturday Sunny and temps 15-19.
In the backcountry we have had just enough warm temps to transform the snow and cold temps at night to make it pretty firm. Skier reports from Friday are that there is 4″ of new snow in the backcountry– and the skiing is actually pretty good.
Wednesday: Afternoon update: It warmed up nicely today. 40 degrees at 5pm and a bright sun/blue sky. We groomed 25km for skate and classic in the early afternoon– and the skiing is very good. And reports from a couple backcountry skiers that went out were pretty good. It’s not a foot of fresh powder, but there is still lots of snow. At 8am it is 32 degrees and overcast. We did not get the forecast snow last night, but there is some chance of flurries through the day today. We have 30km groomed for classic and skate with mixed snow conditions. The snow has transformed into granular in some places, while it is still packed powder in the colder shady trails. We still have 100% of trails open and skiing is great.
Monday: At 8am this morning it’s a warm 20 degrees and promising to be a beautiful sunny day. Great trail conditions, for both Classic and Skating, from this weekend’s snowfall.
