early am: NEW SNOW and WAFFLES!! It was a nice surprise as I drove up the access road this morning to see new snow.  The forecast was for a dusting, but we ended up with more than a dusting.  There is 3″ new powder out there now and it is still snowing pretty steady.  Today we are grooming and classic tracking 20km.  With this new snow tracks should set well.

At 8am it is 22 degrees

Saturday: It’s going to be a great day of skiing.  It was cold overnight and things setup well.  This morning Larry is grooming and setting tracks.  We will have Picnic, Valley, World Cup, Maple, Spruce and Broadway groomed.  Other trails will be great skiing once they soften a little.

Trail surface is frozen granular now and will change to soft spring snow once things warm up.

Good Morning and HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!  Today is the official first day of spring.   I know it’s hard to believe that there is still snow on the trails, but it’s true. I was snowshoeing yesterday on Cliffhanger and stepped off the packed trail and sunk into 36″ of snow.

It has been warm most of this week and cold at night. The snow has transformed and is very fast, frozen in the mornings and soft in the afternoons. Last night it was about 10 degrees, so things are very firm now. We recommend waiting to ski until after things soften about 10am.

We have been moving snow around with one of the grooming machines from the alpine mtn to cover some of the bare spots… and this has worked really well and things look great.

The forecast for today is for sun and temps in the high 20s… but the sun is strong and should soften everything pretty well. And it’s more of the same through the weekend. We are in the process of grooming 18km for skate and classic. The wax today is klister.

Saturday we hosting the UVM Outing club Winter Classic… click here for more info, then scroll down.
